Going out with a BANG!

Saturday, May 04, 2013

I have decided to start tomorrow. I know what everyone says "you should start now" "don't wait or it will never happen" yada yada. Today, I made the decisions to eat what I wanted and get it out of my system so that tomorrow I can start with a clean slate.

One of the issues I have is that my husband thoroughly enjoys the junk. He enjoys the healthy stuff, too, but he likes the comfort food. We both do. He is working two jobs at the moment and is hardly ever home, and his jobs are stressful, so his thing is, until he is less stressed, he want to eat whatever he wants because that is his calm time and time to wind down and feel better about that day. I understand that, so this where it gets double hard for me to say no when he is enjoying, relaxing and relishing his food.

I don't have a solution for this yet, other than to stay strong and say 'no' when I see his yummy food. He will eat whatever I cook for dinner, so at least I know that I can get something healthy into him. What sucks...he's not overweight like me. MEN!

So, here I am, eating the last of my mini heaths and looking forward to starting anew. I have my Jillian Michaels Body Revolution ready to go, I have my lunch and breakfasts planned out. I am READY!!

    emoticon Just keep telling yourself that food is fuel. The goal, eating things that will keep you fuller longer, good carbs, fiber, and protein! I rely of whey protein shakes before and after a workout to get that extra pro I need. Plus remember that you don't want to waste the workout for a candy bar, because then all that sweat and tears was for nothing. Those are my tips :) Good luck, you can do it! Pretty soon that junk food won't be as appealing. Your gonna start feeling awesome after your workouts! emoticon Never give up! emoticon

    Well, that IS problematic! Men! They DO have it a lot easier than us women. Do what you can. Do the best you can. You can only control your own behavior, not your husband's. Best to you!
