Sabotage in my house

Sunday, July 31, 2011

The past 6-7 months have been hell. Gained the 30 pounds due to medical problems.
The past week my husband went to Boy Scout camp with my youngest, and I took full advantage of it, cleaned out the junk in the house and refrigerator. Filled the refrigerator with good whole foods, veggies for the next few days, fresh fruit on the counter, and other healthy handy snacks for the other two kids and myself. Life was good! Dropped 5 pounds, biked 50 miles, drank tons of water, got back onto spark people, changed my status to “I’m back”, logging in all foods, taking polls etc……..Until my husband came home last night and complained there was no food in the house. So today when I took my daughter to a Girl Scout event my husband went to Costco and came back with all kinds of junk!! Brie wheel, whole milk, a 12 pack of chocolate, chocolate chip muffins, a huge wheel of a sweet roll, jumbo box of gummies, Starbucks mochas, premade frozen dinners, 5 pounds of chocolate chip so I can make homemade chocolate chip cookies (what!!) and I’m sure there is more if I looked harder…. Oh my word!!! Keep in mind my husband is a diabetic. Lost his mother to the disease, she had 7 amputations before she passed away. You would think he would learn…nope! What to do? What to do? I have no choice- pull up my big girl pants, not look at the crap in the house, ride my bike and drink my water. Wish me luck this week.

    Good luck! I know how tempting all those things are (I have a huge sweet tooth), but you can do this! I'm sorry the support for a healthier lifestyle is so small in your house. :-(
