I have been good about my food choices the past few days. I have overdone it quite a bit on the portion category, though. Had a root vegetable au gratin with a hunk of lingcod for dinner last night. I’m sure I would have been satisfied with half of what I ate. But it tasted so good I couldn’t help sticking more of the vegetable dish in my mouth as I cleaned the kitchen. The cream and gruyere cheese made it taste sinful. And I probably could have done without the second glass of wine. Hmmm, come to think of it, I had that second glass of wine while I was cleaning the kitchen. There may be some cause and effect here. Maybe I shouldn’t be cleaning the kitchen! Yeah, that’s it! The secret to my diet success will be to not clean the kitchen!
I don’t think I can get away with that one. He cooks, I clean – that’s the deal here. He doesn’t like my cooking, so it’s not like we can share the duties. If I cooked more often, he would have to eat my ‘weird’ BTD food. I wouldn’t be cooking him pork and chicken, that’s for sure. So, I have to work on that one half hour in the kitchen after dinner while I'm cleaning up. An isolated period of time in which to set some resolve. I think I’ll try it. Not tonight, though. We’re going out for a little fun. But the food choices will be easy. I can order what I want – and not worry about hurting anyone’s feelings.
