This doesn't help

Sunday, June 30, 2013

People tell me I知 lucky being married to a chef. I just say 16 years and 60 lbs later I知 not sure! The only consolation was that there were a ton of dishes to do.

I知 afraid to get on the scale to tell you the truth. I hooked up my fitbit scale and pedometer to the dashboard so no cheating on that. My hubby quit smoking 3 weeks ago which is great. But he痴 been cooking which is bad. His concept of portion sizes needs to be adjusted. There have been a few too many empty calories coming from beverages of an adult nature, so those are going to stop.

For example, last night痴 dinner was

Spaghetti and sauce (with fresh parm of course)
Sausages
Garlic bread
Fried mushroom caps
Broccoli with prosciutto.

I only had a bit of each but still - not a great food choice. During the week, dinners are much more reasonable - mostly because we're both too tired to cook. It's coming into canning season again, so I'm looking forward to putting aside lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

Today is laundry day so there will be a lot of stairs from the top of the house to the basement (28) where the laundry is and back again.

This weekend my plan is to get my budget in place and a lifestyle change plan in place. I want to have one go up and one go down ! I bought the new Spark People book and need to get into it.

    Alright! It's time. I'm starting Week 1, Day 1 of the Spark Solution and I will be making some adjustments to the menu as I go along. Perhaps you could give the chef a list of measures for your plate, ie; 1 cup of spaghetti, 1 sausage link, less bread and more vegies, etc. Ask him what is on the menu and let him know what a serving should be.

    I agree with Diane! DH and I no longer eat at places like Olive Garden that think one serving is 4 cups! Or that cover everything in butter/cream sauce. Up the vegies with no additions other than herbs. You are on the road!

    A lot of people prepare their meals at home because restaurants don't offer many healthy choices. If your husband perfected healthy meals at home that would work at his restaurant he would have a lot of new customers!
