Our friend Carmen Campbell is back from Norway and is coming over to visit today. She and Rich met when they were undergraduates at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. She is a Fullbright scholar and is scheduled to defend her dissertation this fall.
I am planning ahead. Both my husband and Carmen know I am on Weight Watcher, so naturally my beloved husband decides we should have crab for dinner. You know – served with lots of melted butter. So I am not only planning out the meal, but planning on how I can get my points to the level with this meal.
So here are some ideas:
– eat mostly freebies during the day, so I can use my Points for dinner
– come up with a butter/olive oil blend for dipping my crab
Right now I am a bit mad at my husband for the attitude about the dinner. He didn’t talk to me first about what he wanted to eat; he told Carmen on the phone that this is what we were having. He also seemed like he wanted me to feel bad that I COULDNT have butter but he could. I am sure that he was just trying to be funny, not cruel. I guess it is time to talk about it before I get madder.
I just gave woke him up to take Carl who is throwing a tantrum. (Rich loves sleeping in on Sundays and is not a morning person) Maybe we can talk now…
I am finding since my vow of self-forgiviness that I am eating better. I would not kill for every sweet or chip that looks at me. I had a nibble two days ago of my sons Easter bunny (his uncle Paul gave it to him early) and it wasn’t that good. I may make a stop at Moonstruck for some good chocolate – but why bother with the other stuff?
Ok here are my two quotes to help with my weight loss:
If you have made mistakes… there is always another chance for you… you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.
