Making Choices for ME

Thursday, February 04, 2016

Yesterday we went to Costco.

DH was out of his blueberry muffins, so that was the "primary" reason we went. That, and to pick up milk.

I added celery, walnuts and Fuji apples to the cart.

I knew I had some low fat cool whip in the freezer and some dried cranberries in the pantry.

I decided that I haven't given myself a treat for quite a while other than those sneaky-eat-more-Oreos, and I am tired of them.

DH does not like Waldorf Salad, and it is one of my very favorites. I haven't had that for quite a while because he doesn't like it.

So Just For Today, I am making myself some Waldorf Salad. No marshmallows or that kind of stuff….just fruit, walnuts and cool whip.

Yesterday I recognized that I have only been preparing meals HE likes, and not what I like especially. Oh, yeah, I am a good cook, and the meals have been good. I have been making all of HIS favorites.

I miss MY TREAT FOODS, if you know what I mean. today is Waldorf Salad for ME. I will measure and weigh it, but you better believe I will also be EATING it!!

It's okay to be selfish enough to treat myself to what I love. That's a hard lesson to keep for a care giver.

I have my plan, and I have my story. And I am sticking to it!!

    You nailed that one. It is hard to learn to treat ourselves without over-doing it.

    That's part of our re-training effort!

    We went to Costco too . . . about 40% of our cart was fresh fruits, veggies & frozen fruits for smoothies..... yummmmm
