This is why women live longer than men

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

DH has been napping for at least an hour and a half. And he had a burger and fries for lunch. (Oh, excuse me, make that a double quarter pounder with cheese. Box said 750 calories. Just for the burger. Doesn't include the fries.) He had diet soda. Then, when we went to the Italian caffé I like, he had a HUGE slice of apple cake with ice cream.

I, on the other hand, had nothing at the fast food place, just watched Hugh Jackman on the tv.

My lunch was fresh tomato bruschetta. YUM! Four slices. Then an unsweetened herbal iced tea (lemongrass). And then a normal sized slice of the apple cake, with ice cream, because it is almost Rosh Hashana and we eat apples dipped in honey for a sweet year - so apple cake works.

Instead of napping, I just finished 40 minutes of dancing around the B&B room. Beatles, Green Day, Da Boss, Left Banke, Bob Dylan, Adam Levine, Roberta Flack setting the night to music - they all kept me dancing and moving and burning off that cake. Shimmied, shook, hula-ed, double-time twisted, did everything but shout.

Because, after all, DH is napping.

    You kick butt! Today I opted for a 3 hour nap instead of wandering around the fair and eating funnelcake with most of my friends. Tonight I'm choosing to hang out just a little then go to bed early so I can wake up at 0630 to climb the highest mountain (I'm on a working vacation in Denver). Healthy choices DO help us live longer!

    Ha! Does your hubby know you write about his bad habits on Spark people? Mine must suspect because he sidled over yesterday with his eyebrows up and a goofy grin on his face. Then again, I suspect yours would have to be awake!

Did you see Sylph's comment? For shame! emoticon

    So sounds like my hubby!

Great job with your choices and deciding to work it off rather than nap.

    Sorry, but Hugh Jackman doesn't belong in a fast-food joint. He's more like the Chinese food of our childhoods -- have him now and you'll be hungry for more of him in half an hour.

I'm all in favor of replacing the honey with ice cream. Ice cream all over Hugh Jackman's body.

Huh? Who said that?

    Good for you! I have to admit, though, my DH has always been more careful about food than I've been. On the plus side, I'm exercising more than he is.

    If only our husbands would understand. It took a couple of strokes for my hubby to be willing to accept that he is diabetic. He still loads up on saturated fat, though. And there is nothing I can do about it.

    I must say that Hugh Jackman is much better than a double quarter pounder with cheese. LOL
