The hubby is a BAD influence

Monday, May 03, 2010

I'm doing pretty well, but not great. I keep allowing my husband to pull me off of the wagon, but luckily he will be heading out on a work trip again for a couple of days. I guess I can say that even though he is pulling me off the wagon, it is on days where I have been busting my butt working around the house. Tonight he was mentioning Dairy Queen. I told him that he and Grant could go get some, but don't bring it home. Problem solved.

Tonight was BBQ chicken, seasoned roasted potatoes and stir fried green beans. Everything was DELICIOUS!! The house smelled fabulous. YUM!! Best of all, I am finally well within my fat intake range. I have been hitting it a little high, while staying within my calorie range.

I came back into this thinking that I actually wanted to stay in the 1500 to 1800 calorie range, rather than the 1200-1550 that SP gives me. I think that my higher range is a more livable long term target for me, but I am trying to challenge myself to stay in the lower range as much as possible. I just don't kick myself if I go a little into my range. I will still lose, just not as fast. This isn't really about doing it fast anyway, it's about doing it right.

    You have it right! Don't try and diet, try and live a healthy lifestyle. My wife is German so she fries EVERYTHING. I just made a salad tonight and ate that with a little tuna. Good luck! It makes it hard when the people you live with try and sabotage you.

    Dairy Queen.... who could say no to that!
