Yikes! I'm eating how much? Hubby Sabatoge!!

Monday, October 03, 2011

So I need to really set some ground rules at home again. I'm looking at the container my hubby packed me last night for lunch today. I ate half of it and I'm stuffed, so I'm looking at the other half thinking, wow that's a lot of food he packed. Last night he made my plate for me - which is uncommon. I couldn't eat all of that either - I told him too much, he agreed. Night before he bought chips & dip. I was smart, i got a small bowl of chips and a couple tablespoons of dip - better than my before healthy half bag & bowl of dip - but worse than my healthier (skipping those chips/dips altogether, or only eating five or six chips with dip). Now my hubby does love the sexier new us, and agrees that we are in our "middle" stage of losing weight. We got through the Inital phase (I lost 60, he lost 90) Now we both want to lose another 40. And we will, and I'm going to make sure of it! lol. First I have to get us back to not having certain items in the house.. and doing things like buying the mini versions of snacks if they must be in the house, at the same time the portion control has to be set. And I MUST exercise MORE. I need to dedicate 45-60 minutes to exercise (5-10 to get dressed, 30 min exercise, 5-10 to shower/cool off/change). I have to remind myself THIS is IMPORTANT to me and it's what I WANT. My new rule is goin to be when I get home I am exercising before anything else. I'm going to try that tonight. I'll write later to say how it goes. I also have a roast in the crock pot for tonight's dinner, so it will be about a smaller portion & self control. I already ate enough for lunch!!! Yikes! lol

    Sounds like you are really putting your health on the front burner, first and foremost! DH may mean well, but he's probably giving you HIS portions, not YOURS! :-)

    Hey a chips & dip tip: I lightly toast a Flat-Out Multi-Grain wrap (100 calories) in the toaster oven...it makes 'em crispy! I break 'em up and dip in salsa...yum!

    Kudos in focusing on your workouts! My Least Common Denominator workout is 35 mins. on the treadmill. If I can do other stuff, better stuff, fine. But I'm aiming for this as the very LEAST I will tolerate...lol!

    I wonder why we sometimes undermine the people we love! It really makes no sense. I have no doubt if you blog your goals it will go a long way to helping you a niece them. I rely on the fitness tracker for my exercise, i set it up and track it. That has really helped me. We are with you on this. Victoria

    I understand completely where you are coming from! My husband has never had to watch what he eats, he works a very physically demanding job, and assumes that if he can eat it so can I. He had a fit one night when I was measuring out food. 60 pounds is awesome! Keep the awesome attitude and your plan of action and the remaining 40 you want to loose will be more then possible to say goodbye to!!
