The Hubs is bad news for my eating habits!!!

Friday, October 19, 2012

Yesterday was DHs day off from work (first day off in like 2 weeks) So we take DS to school and he says "wanna go to breakfast?" I said no lets have breakfast @ home and we can eat lunch out cause we have errands to run. So we did just that lunchtime came while we were out running errand and he was wanting Smashburger (mega yum I know) So my intentions were to get a salad or a chicken sandwich but once we were there the beef got the best of me and I ordered a colorado burger with I took away the bun top and went at it. You would think he would be satisfied with such a meal (he had a baja) nope just when we were leaving he says "starbucks sounds good right now" So we hit up he NEEDS a McDonalds apple pie to go with the coffee, cause in his terms "that's how he rolls" lol so I too had coffee and an apple pie...bad, bad, bad, I don't eat like this on a regular day...he won't gain an ounce no matter what he eats I on the other hand gain quickly and have a tough time losing it. We did go to the gym in the evening but still. After the gym he wants a smothered burrito....that's where I drew the line! Ugh he is bad news I tell you, and I told him so and to which he responded " I'm not forcing you to eat what I eat" TRUE must practice my self control I guess.

Anyone in your life bad news for your diet or fitness?

    Ohh My.... My fiance is the same way.. He eats fast food way too much! I keep reminding him of his parents health and how it has gotten soo bad. He loves eating out and would probably be the same way.. He likes to do errands on the weekend because he thinks it means we get to go out to lunch.

    Oh Geeze! Well congrats on getting to the gym! My husband can do this too. He LOVES fast food and dunkin donuts. My coworker made a chart of all the fast food places/ healthy options and nutrition info. I keep it in my glove box just in case.

    It's taken my DH 3 months to adjust to my determination to eat and cook healthier. He has always been the devil on my shoulder when it comes to eating. The man is a regular trash compactor when it comes to food! Now that there are some positive emoticon results, he's a little more supportive and considerate. Good thing!

    I know how that goes. It's really hard to make healthy choices when those around you are indulging (a LOT). I just try to remember to keep my eyes on my own plate and think about nourishing my body. emoticon

    Gah! Boys! Mine is the same - Fritos and salsa last night in front of the TV! "Get that away from me!"

    And just the other day "I think I've lost about 10 pounds!" How?! He goes out to lunch every day and has seconds for dinner... But he's pretty supportive of MY SP progress. And he lets me "experiment" on him with new, lower calorie, lower sodium recipes. And no complaints on spending $ on new bathroom scale or kitchen scale or SP books or... But he does LOVE eating out... *sigh*. What a scurvy dog!

    Sometimes my significant other tries to get me to "cheat" and that's when I explain my goals to him and why cheating is not a good idea for me. You're right, it's all about self-control, which takes practice! You can do it!
