Not really exited - just saying.

Yesterday went fairly well. Ate 7 Fruits/veggies !!! Woohoo! Did my workout and stayed within my calorie range. I did eat more sugar than I should have... but less than last week, so improvement.

Did a good strength workout this morning... though my knee is killing me (from running yesterday is my suspicion). I didn't plan/pack as well for eating today and it is showing. Though I did get a wrap with grilled chicken and a ton of veggies for lunch... still not as good as something I would have made from home.

Had a hard talk with DH over the weekend... about my concern for his health... it was VERY hard. And he took it hard... finally, a few days later, he is formulating a plan. Unfortunately, I'm not thrilled with the plan he's leaning toward - HCG. I take supplements, so it's not like I'm completely a purist... I just worry about the long term and how this will become just like atkins etc (which he's done in the past). Plus, I worry about his energy levels and his job etc... but I have told him I will support whatever he decides to do (beggars can't really be choosers, right?). So I am trying to get my brain around that... and how I can cook for him and the family ... and I know the food is actually really healthy (no added fats... good veggies), we'll just have to evaluate once I see the actual plan.

Okay, enough whining. emoticon I am SO grateful that he has decided to do something. I will focus on that.

    That's great you had that talk. That's not easy. You're right, he is doing something so supporting him is what he needs.

    I hear no whining you. You are doing great!

    Congrats! It can be tough having the talk with loved ones. I had to have a couple talks with my hubs before he finally decided he wanted to change. It's awesome that your husband listened, was open with you and now wants to make changes! It's a big step in the right direction

    Great job on that produce! And it's wonderful that your husband is going to make an effort, even if you don't necessarily agree with it. I wish I could get my dh interested in health. He's not overweight, but he sure could be healthier.

    Hope you're having a great evening!
