Temps going up up up

I feel like I have been telling myself this a lot lately. But finally things are getting better. Not amazing, but better than they were a few weeks ago. Stuff is finally melting and no snow in the forecast, doesn't mean we wont get some though. One day at a time! I think whats so frusterating is that I depend on working out outside so much. Not having it is putting on weight when I am really not eating that much worse than usual. But not having my walks with the dogs and 3 mile runs outside really manages my weight more than I know.

I went to the gym this morning and set out to run 4 miles on the treadmill and I did it! Even though i hate that awful boring machine. I felt great to walk out completely drenched. I even made a sweat heart

I am kinda bummed out about my cooking lately. I make these indepth recipes that take me hours and I don't feel like my husband really notices. I could make him a jack's pizza in the microwave and he would be as interested. I made this vegetarian shepherds pie and he ate half of what I served him and I got kinda mad at him about it. He said I serve him too much) So he started eating it really felt and gulping water to get it down as if he was eating worms on fear factor. Maybe I should just cook for myself and tell him I bought him some cereal, grocery store is down the road. I don't work as much as him and I like making real meals when I have time. Pisses me off he doesn't even notice or acknowledge it. I have mentioned his unentheum and he said he does notice and he loves them. I was excited about the meal, if it doesn't have meat in it. It is not considered a meal to him. I am not looking for man hating comments, I am just irked. He probably has other things on his mind. Eating large qualities of food is not as important to him as it is to me. I need a big burly guy to feed. Not a skinny one that eats nothing when he doesn't move, boooo to that! The problems of a childless woman who likes cooking, I will shut up now.

Speaking of cooking, this was week 45 of my bread baking. Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Beer bread and cream of cauliflower soup.

    I use to cook dinner years ago and my husband would come in while I was cooking and make a PBJ sandwich and go back outside and tell me he didn't have time to wait for me to cook a meal, and then when I had the food on the table he didn't want to eat, so I didn't bother to keep cooking for someone like that.

    Our snow is finally gone and I love it. We were almost creamed in the storm though. It's the most scared I have ever been. A tree fell 10 feet from our house and one hit the sun room. I'm looking forward to spring but hope we don't have any more bad storms.

    My hubby usually gushes over things I fix that are unhealthy. LOL. He sometimes loves healthy food if he doesn't know it's healthy. LOL. Healthy to him means tastes bad even though he is wrong.

    That bread looks delicious!

    I finally started cooking for myself, and let DH make his own food if he didn't want to eat what I was eating. He likes meat and potatoes, I like lighter food with more vegs. It worked for us, anyway.

    I agree, it's totally annoying when they don't notice.

    We made the turkey over the weekend and it was fabulous!!! I couldn't get over the flavor. Thank you!

    I am starting to pull it together, too. I logged my food the past 2 days and exercised too. Yesterday I snowshoed, and this morning I swam. Having the sun rise earlier and set later is helping a lot too. :)

    I could send my 15 year old over to eat your leftovers! :P Actually, that's not a terrible idea... if any of your neighbors has a teenager, ask if they'd like it. Especially teenage boys... mine is a bottomless pit, and that gets expensive!

    I hate it when I cook something and my husband is too full from his lunch to eat. Because he eats late and crazy amounts when I'm not around. Then I am stuck eating all of the leftovers, too. I feel your pain. There might be some validity to the suggestion that you just cook enough for yourself (or maybe for you and he can have what's leftover if he wants it) and let him fend for himself. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a way to cook all that amazing food and then get it out of your house? I don't know how homeless shelters work but I think they should have one that's just a big potluck for people in your situation, cause you KNOW you're not the only one who loves to cook but doesn't have anyone to cook for! Everyone would win!

    I found your snow... We are getting dumped on today! Jeff used to do the same when I'd make lovely meals- when I stopped doing it for him and only for myself , he suddenly started complimenting me. Funny, men! Great job on the dreadmill!!

    I do exercise DVD's at home when the weather is crappy. Never been a gym person though I've had memberships before. Sorry about your problem with the hubby. Have you talked to him about it? I try to make meatless meals often but he doesn't complain. Of course he would love meatloaf or meat balls every night of the week, he grew up eating that way, but that ain't happening. I don't eat a lot of meat and making meatloaf is one of the grossest things to me so he understands he only gets it once or twice a year. We just watched the documentary Food, Inc last night ad neither of us wants to eat meat again for a while, maybe try showing him that? :)
