don’t rob ’em

First of all, I did not feel like going to TaeKwonDo today… but I did.  I told God how I felt about that more than once today.  During class I really felt weak.  The kids and I came home to a house that smelled of dinner cooking.  Sure enough, the Husband and the Kid who stayed home were in the kitchen preparing hamburgers, chips & baked beans.  There was no way I was going to rain on this parade of service by spouting off a list of the items before me that were not “friendly” to my nutrition plan.  And so, I ate the food they had prepared… and it was delicious.

I just didn’t want to rob ’em of the blessing of serving us dinner.  It was such an act of kindness, one that I never want to discourage.  If I had come in with comments like, “Really?  What the heck am I supposed to eat?  You know I’m trying to lose weight and you fix burgers!”  Then what if I added pouting and other such behavior as I begrudgingly fixed myself a salad.  It would have spoiled the evening.

I will have a talk privately with the husband later, probably tomorrow, and let him know that I’ve renewed my commitment to the plan.  No doubt he will be supportive.
