Hey guys, I'm still here. I just haven't felt like food logging although I've been doing pretty well. I took dinner lastnight and dinner tonight to splurge a little. I'm keeping it reasonable though. I'm still maintaining...have been weighing every other day or so.
Had huge argument w/ David today....huge one. We've been working up to it, but the fuse finally blew today....as it ALWAYS does on Mother's Day weekend without fail. Mother's Day is my most unfavorite holiday of the year. I'll let you guys in on the secret.
Let's see....it involved me wanting to do Zumba/Yoga ($40 per month) and David telling me just b/c I quit smoking (which was 100 dollars a month for a pack a day habit roundabout) doesn't mean I can "spend" that money. I told him I didn't see the logic in that b/c if I wanted to smoke again, he'd have no problem with me "blowing" that money (pun intended). I told him I wanted to save part of that back for vacations and fun physical activities for our family to enrich our lives...and that using the money for smoking does not even compare to blowing money on fun activities like trips. Then he got mad about me not cooking enough red meat...or mixing up the meals enough b/t chicken, beef, and fish (although he himself requests fish at least once a week). He told me he was tired of sauteed vegetables and wants fried food here and there. (The junky meal he wants for the week is cubed steak w/ gravy, white rice, fried potatoes, and fried okra...yucko) I told him it's fine if he wants it here and there, but I have been making a HUGE effort to make yummy healthy palatable dishes so he would not suffer. I told him he should be thankful that I cook. I told him I switch off with red meat and white meat most days and I need him to explain where I can do better to mix things up. He told me he already explained that I should just mix things up more...whatever that meant. I tried to get him to be specific...he's not that great at communicating. Oh well. I went Jerry Springer on him...just a little. All of it was very emotionally draining. We finally made up like after 4 hours. He told me I was right about the smoking thing....and other stuff. It's a blur now. We never really could get to a compromise on what I cook....for shame that he's a skinny guy. Errr. Anyway, that's been a lot of my week....my husband and I working up to an argument. I hope all you moms have a Happy Mother's Day. Joey and Niki are over for the weekend and we're taking my mom out to dinner tomorrow...so that should be fun. ☺☺☺ Really...I'm smiling.
