I think I make myself crazy sometimes, I always need an eating plan.... and a back up plan
years and years I would wing it... throw together dinners for the family, and frankly I am not proud of what I fed my family!!! Now it is basically just me and my husband, and we work different hours, so I am getting home and he is headed to bed almost!! So he has "his food" ... cereal, crackers, Shepherd's bread, hard salami, an assortment of cheeses, and even some Marie Callender's frozen meals. Then there is the "other food" ... cooked steamed veggies, or baked veggies, a giant salad made with cole slaw, carrots and jicama so it will last for a few days in the refrigerator, chicken, turkey meat loaf, Fage, eggs... OMG... I buy 6 containers of the 18 count eggs at a time!!
I feel bad sometimes, cause I am not cooking for my hubby any more!! we have our family days, where we have massive taco feasts, and the pot of chili here and the meal there.
but here's the thing, they know I won't eat that.... He was eating cleaner but I am seeing him swing back the other way... he want's cereal now and sweets and all the old "hubby food"
I can't make him eat clean. I wish I could, but I can't ... so maybe this is why I have to plan like a mad woman, so I don't cave into eating a GIANT bowl of cereal, or scarf out on the bread and butter...
it's a balance, and I feel like I walk a tight rope food wise sometimes. I screw up... A LOT!!! but I don't give up. I can't... at 53 I can't yo yo again!! I have been dedicated to this way of life now for almost 2 years... I want to be one of those folks that make the change FOR LIFE ... and I remember in AA how many people would go back out and drink, oops ... I never mentioned I am a sober alcoholic...
I don't go to meetings, but that's a whole other story, back to the food thing... and every time I would screw up and drink, and go back those people would embrace me... love me ... have hope for me... and I remember thinking... are you real? this is crazy!! how can you have hope for me? I am hopeless but I came to realize, I am not hopeless, every day... EVERY SINGLE DAY is a new beginning, and there is new hope
so today is a new day, I choose to make good choices, I have hope
