WORKING OUT WITH MY KETTLE BELL
Workout Wednesday - I haven't started working out with my Kettle Bell this week. I have designated tomorrow as Workout Wednesday. I have been doing some yard work so I have been getting some decent exercise. I have been carrying around pavers and digging. I will work out with my kettle ball tomorrow. I am making a commitment to myself.
HOW DO YOU GET A HUSBAND TO EAT HEALTHY?
I asked my husband to join me on the diet and to try to lose some weight. Of course, I said I just wanted him to be healthier. He could probably lose 20-25 pounds. I really think it would be easier if everyone in the house was eating healthy. My son is doing a fantastic job, but he can eat so much more than I can. He gave up sugar this year for Lent and hasn't eaten any obvious sugar since. He still eats things like catsup and barbecue sauce.
Well guess what his answer was? "I can't eat the stuff you eat!" I told him, you mean you can't eat steak, chicken, and other meats. You can't eat salads or vegetables and fruits? He just looked at me like I was crazy. The he said, "I just can't eat the stuff you eat!"
I really think the idea of diet makes him think it's something he doesn't want to do. Since my son and I have given up sugar he has been eating more sugar. He buys more dessert items than he ever did. He has never been a big dessert eater and it seems he has now become addicted to sugar. It's like he has to make up for us not eating it.
I just think he would feel better and have more energy if he starting eating healthier. Do you have any suggestions to get him to eat healthier with us?
DAILY UPDATE ON THE NEW DIET
Now, getting to my progress on the diet today. I have decided that there is no way that I can follow the meal plans exactly as they are laid out. I just like being able to select my own meals.
That said, I did pretty well with eating only things from the days meal plans. I just moved the meals around a little bit.
2 Eggs Scrambled with 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
2 Slices Bacon
(Still didn't add the veggies)
