Sleeping with the enemy (well, not exactly): Diet Sabotoge
Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Almost everyone is financial strapped these days. To attempt to combat this my husband and I are living with the in-laws. Wasn't really a super big deal until a turn of events caused his dad and mom to be home everyday. Our dietary goals could not be further removed. So, I am trying not to sabotage myself my aimlessly eating/snacking. And of course I am trying to make the most healthful choices. This can be a really difficult thing when there are people living with you that could care less about what they eat.
I am trying with everyhting I have to stay away from refined sugary drinks and some else buys juice "drinks"--not 100% juice, but some sugary fruit essence concoction. I am trying to stay off of sweets and they buy cakes and cookies. I try to stay away from fried food and someone else is frying hamburgers, hot dogs, and french fries. I have to say, hubby is supportive. If I say we're eating healthy, he'll chew on bricks if I gave it to him. But that's not quite enough...the in-laws are killing me.
Not to mention I am having to exercise around when they decide to get off the couch, rather than when I feel motivated, because I don't want to be a spectacle. What is this foolishness?! How do I combat this? Ugh...pulling my hair out.
