Evidence of my Healthy Life Style change

Friday, August 10, 2012

We used to eat out almost every night when we had more demanding jobs that got home after 7:00 every night. Now my work responsibilities have really calmed down and my DH has retired so we hardly ever eat dinner out any more. My DH takes full responsibility for dinner every Tuesday because I have Yoga class at 5:00 to 6:00 every Tuesday evening. I take full responsibilty for dinner on Thursday because my DH plays softball in his Vintage softball league and can't shop on or plan. The rest of the time we share the responsibilty, he'll grill and I'll make the side dishes or I'll do most of it with my DH serving as sous-chef. We both love to cook and it's so much easier when you get home at 5:00 or 6:00 (or like my DH can be home whenever he wants)

My DH and I have just made a commitment to eat fish twice a week. We have grilled salmon every Monday since garbage day is Tuesday and we like to get the fishy bones and skin out and away as fast as possible. We also have committed to some other gillfish or shellfish some other time in the week. So far we've kept the commitment for 6 weeks.

I am soooo lucky that my DH is a master at the grill and our very moderate climate allows him to grill outside anytime we like.

    You two are the envy of many married couples. That's so sweet that you're able to work it out together to manage what many consider to be an unequal division of labor. Love the grill work.

    I love the practicality of fih planning . . . I save my bread bags and used freezer ziplocks to double wrap the garbage (fish and meat platters) I know will not make it through the week without creating a little havoc.

    Isn't it wonderful when you husband is on the same healthy journey that you are?! I feel very blessed that my husband willingly tries new healthy foods, and will ask for certain healthy meals...and he enjoys being active and fit!

    Thanks for reminding me of my blessings!
