So glad it is Monday!

I have come to completely rely on Monday through Friday to keep me in check. I do so great with my exercise and diet during the week. The weekends always mess me up. I did get my exercise in as I took the kids and friends (a total of 5) to the county fair on Saturday. It is a small town but they have a great fair every year. So I spent the day in Kiddie Hell. Carnival rides for $3.00 a child with 5 kids. Thank goodness I only had to pay for three of them. I got alot of walking in and I did great on my eating. I only ate a barbecue sandwich while I was there, though it was big. I did not partake in my normal sausage with onions and peppers, funnel cake, cotton candy. etc. Actually I did not even think about it. Yesterday I worked in my yard, working on the flower beds, breaking up some ground and reseeding my front and side yard. I have to work on my back yard tomorrow.
My Husband is driving me crazy with his sabotaging ways. On Saturday I got up went to the store and had my nails done. Then I went to the grocery store and did by bi-weekly shopping trip. When I came home around 1:30 my husband had made some hamburger helper and I had a little (not much). Then we went to the fair around 5 pm.. The first thing everyone wanted to do was eat so I followed them over and I ate my barbecue sandwich. It was hugh on a restaurant size bun with slaw. My husband had the same! When we went to leave the carnival that night to come home he said can we stop for dinner. EXCUSE ME! What was that thing I ate at the fair? So we went through the drive through and I got a soda while my husband ate a Whopper. He calls me diet crazed but I guess I am compared to him. I have not really been that hungry. I stopped eating to clear my plate and eat what I need and walk away.
My husband is in the military and he is a large man. He is up for retirement as early as next year. I worry that once he does not have to worry about his weight at all he is going to really let himself go. He doesn't seem to be looking after himself much now. My husband has alot of insecurity issues and I know if I say anything he would fly off the deep end. So I sit back and wonder is my husband who is now about 240/250 lbs going to blossom into one of those people we see on biggest loser when he is no longer accountable at his job. I cook healthy at the house but I can not control what he consumes during the day. I know because he is larger he is suppose to consume more calories but in just the barbecue and the whopper alone on Saturday he consumed a days worth of calories.
So far to day I have worked out and had my bananna and granola bar for breakfast. All is well again because it is Monday!
