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.
