It's The Thought That Counts, But I Didn't Eat It!

Sunday, January 22, 2012

What a thoughtful husband I have! He went to a fundraiser this afternoon that took place at a local Chinese Restaurant, and they had a buffet set up. Since I didn't go to the meeting with him, he was so thoughtful & brought me home a small container of food. He handed it to me and said "I'm not sure whether you can eat this or not, but I wanted to bring you something".
Well, upon opening the container, I saw it had General Tso's chicken, fried rice and some brocolli. I literally took one teensy tiny piece of the chicken to "taste test" it, then determined that I couldn't and wouldn't eat it...too greasy. I put the container in the fridge, told my hubby that since I didn't want to waste it, maybe he could take it to work for lunch tomorrow. Well, he won't eat it, 'cause it has brocolli in it (LOL), so I guess it's going into the garbage can!
I really hate to waste it, but I'm not going to let it mess up my healthy eating. In the past, I would have most likely told myself I could have the Chinese food & the mentality of "tomorrow is another day". My husband wasn't offended that I couldn't eat the is the thought that counts.

    That was such a strong moment. Taking one bite and deciding that it was not healthy. I am in total favor of throwing away or getting rid of tempting foods. Look how far you have come away from "tomorrow is another day" and just mindlessly eating.
    Good for you.

    Our husbands are trying so hard to help us in this journey. My poor husband sometimes eats a different meal than me, because I want a lower calorie version.

    It is the thought that counts..sweet of your husband to think of you...but your strength in saying no was even better.
