Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Based on a SparkFriend's comment (thanks, Aquagirl) I took a pack of Post It notes in various colors. I wrote, "Calorie Minefield," "Watch Out!", "Alert: Junk," "Not Worth It," or a simple "Calories" and labeled most of the junk food found throughout our house. (Refer to 12/10/12 blog.)

My daughter giggled over all my notes. I'm not sure hubby would have noticed had it not been for the giggling. I mentioned the SparkFriend. Later I was sitting down with my laptop and he asked, "Are you writing me up again?" I just laughed.

If there was a touch of resentment toward all his junk food, I think it dissipated in that laugh!!

    Fantastic idea!! Glad your hubby has a sense of humor about it too! I am thinking he probably takes the CAKE in one time massive junk food purchases. That was quite the list :P Even at my worst, I would never have all that. I was more of a salty snacker and didn't have sweets at all.
Your attitude is going to carry you far!

    Marsha, I love it! What a fun thing to do and fun that you and DH had a good laugh. I think it's so funny that he asked if you were "writing him up". Just way too funny!
Have a great day!

    Laughter is sometimes the BEST defense! We're all human, even our hubbies!

    That was a WONDERFUL idea! And, I wondered if you had any resent ment toward his junk food. Dh is not a junk food eater except ice cream which I am fine with but all the things you mentioned, I just don't know how I would have felt!

Your friend was wonderful to share that idea and you are wonderful to have found yet another way to win and inspire me! HUGS,
