It's all in how you plan your day...

Friday, March 22, 2013

Yesterday, my husband was packing up food to take to work and I was half paying attention to what he was doing... I noticed he cut up two apples and put some lemon on them to keep them from browning and put them in sandwich bags, then grabbed a hard boiled egg and then grabbed his yogurts and whatever else, then he asks me how many prunes are in a serving... and I answer "about 4 or 5" without thinking, then stop. "Why are you taking prunes? You already have your two fruit servings." Then we get into a discussion on food... and here it goes...

We've been following this diet for a year. An entire YEAR! How does he not understand that we get TWO fruit servings a day? I just don't get that. lol He then tells me that he needs SOMETHING to keep him full. I'm like... PROTEIN! VEGETABLES! I'm not understanding what it is you aren't understanding here. lol (we don't really yell at each other....) It's just that we bicker about the stupid stuff and he is like... "How is it that you take a smorgasboard to work every day and I take hardly anything with me?" and I'm like "It's all in the planning, my love"...

I, seriously, am like a cow... I graze ALL DAY LONG! LOL I think I eat something every hour of the day... and I've been losing weight all year long... I don't have huge meals... or huge snacks... but I eat something all the time... carrot sticks, cut up chicken, a hard boiled egg, a yogurt, some prunes, drink some tea, drink some water... have two brazil nuts... whatever. I work, I eat, I drink, I get up to go to the bathroom, I repeat, I get up to fill my water bottle, oops, it's my break time, I walk the stairs at work... then it's time to munch again! LOL Next thing I know, it's time to go home! LOL My days fly by!

Ya know? I seriously try telling him, "If you'd only listen to your wife more often!" lol

    emoticon Sounds like us! I don't have David following the 17DD--it is more of a modified C3 though. I try to make sure he has a large serving of protein and everything he needs for his lunches.Men are so funny sometimes!

    My husband and I have been eating healthy for nine years and he still asks questions. It's easier for me to remember details because I chose our food plan and usually plan meals. My guess is that your husband remembered that once he packed prunes and an apple. That would have been fine if he hadn't already sliced two apples. I'm happy to answer all my husband's questions because I love that he's also interested in a healthy lifestyle. And....sometimes I forget things that he thinks I should know!
