It’s been a few days of adjusting to having my hubby home after being gone for 3 months. One of the biggest changes is his lifestyle and I don’t mean it in a bad way.
He is definitely on board with working out and eating clean/healthy. I mean, he’s always been the type to hit the gym but as far as eating habits, he could eat whatever and not worry about gaining.
Now he chooses to eat well to support his active lifestyle. The man loves dark meat but has switched to white. We went grocery shopping and brought home veggies for omelets, almond butter instead of peanut (which I’m still getting used to) and almond milk instead of soy. These changes came as a huge surprise to me and I’m having a hard time adjusting. What?! Why?!
You’d think I’d be excited that he’s on this healthy kick and I have someone to share this lifestyle with but for some reason I took it hard (hey, I’m a girl…I have every reason to cry and get emotional, even if I’m not sure of the exact reason why). I guess I felt like he’s on it 100% and here I am slacking which made me feel and look bad. Make sense? No? Didn’t think so. No point in writing about it because I don’t even know what to say.
After my pity party, we talked it over and came down with a plan. We both will eat clean during the week with Saturday as our cheat day. This is something I’ve been sticking to the past many months so no biggie there. If anything this will make it easier to follow knowing I have someone by my side.
I’m still following Chalean Extreme and I have one more week of the Push phase 2 before I move one.
Now that I have some “freedom” I’ve been excited to hit the gym for my favorite classes. But my TK instructor is out of town and it’s not clear if she’ll be there this Saturday. I told her I at least wanted to come to one more class before she moves (which is super soon) so we’ll see how things work out.
For now, I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing. I love having my own mini gym at home. It’s convenient, I don’t have to worry about how I look, and no excuses!
