Weekend woes

Sunday, March 14, 2010

It is harder for me on the weekends when it comes to my calorie count. My husband and I love to cook and we are still working on making it healthier. I guess that is what it is all about. Making changes. He is at least willing to make the change with me so we can at least share meals together. We do love to eat.

One of the things that we love to make from scratch is sausage. We have sausage making parties with friends and relatives. The good news is we make all types of sausage and we control the ingredients. This is something that I will not give up. We both enjoy it very much and it is a part of us.

Today I took lamb sausage out of the freezer for him and I also took turkey burgers out that I wanted to eat. Well when the turkey burgers thawed I realized that I thawed out polish sausage burgers not turkey. The good news is my breakfast and lunch were low enough in calories that I had the extra room for the sausage. The hard part is determining the calories in the sausage that we have made.

Oh well, I'm working on the need for perfectionism and will just have to take the closest guess I can.

    Hey, no one said you had to give up what you love just to make this work. Just remember moderation is the key. I refuse to give up most of the foods I eat. I just eat less of them now, and it works.

    As a fellow perfectionist, I keep the mantra "Pick your battles" in my head as much as possible. Some things are worth nitpicking over, others are not!

    Keep it up! You can do this!

    Sometimes I have a difficult time figuring out calories, too, for things that are homemade. I just go with the closest food item I can find knowing that the difference probably isn't all that much.

    BTW, those sausage making parties sound like fun!
