This weekend was good and bad. I'd rather get the bad out first... so my man has some weight to lose too, probably about 30-40lbs or so. While I've been making my changes towards a healthy and more fit way of living, he still has many of his old habits, especially when it comes to food, mainly he eats extra large portions. On Saturday he brought "treats" into the house. Cookies, ice cream and candy. My cardinal rule is that if you really really want a treat, you go out for it, get a small portion and it doesn't cross the threshold.
He said that he bought the stuff to eat while watching the football games and because he went into the grocery store hungry and wanted to eat everything in there... Hmmmm.... Let's just say I had to call him out on that one so we sat down for a couple of hours and talked about what is really going on. He tends to keep a lot of emotions bottled up, but we eventually got down to the nitty gritty: it was an issue at work and had some fears cropping up. I was able to offer some possible solutions and he was able to tell me what he needed from me. This is what people mean when they say the key to a long-lasting relationship is hard work and lots of communication!
The good was on Sunday, when it was still mild enough for us to take a long walk before the deep freeze. We wanted to do a healthy outdoors activity together and when it started to snow we acted like a couple of kids and made some snow angels... Awwwww! LOL Then we tackled some indoor house organizing, the usual chores, and prepping meals for the week... yep back to reality.
