It seemed to me her main message to me on Friday was, she really really hates vegetables, and even if she "drank the kool-aid" and thought this way of eating would help her, she couldn't do it.Norm
That's brilliant Norm! I will be sure to use that next time an opportunity comes up.Melinda
I'm glad people find my journal interesting. I wish I could take credit for being creative or something.
I would be willing to go to a councilor with her, but I don't think I would want to go alone. I was thinking that she would never go, but maybe, she did say I needed professional help.Adrienne
While re-reading your post before I replied, I was thinking about why I stay. I do stay because I love her. I also don't think I particularly suffer from her rants and rages. I was trying to keep from laughing most of the time Friday when we were arguing because almost everything she said was so ridiculous.
But that got me thinking about something else. She's been getting more and more financially irresponsible lately. She told me her first husband always kept them in financial trouble, so that anytime she brought up divorce, he told her they couldn't afford it. Sure enough, the year they filed bankruptcy, she left him. I will need to make sure, she doesn't put us into debt to try and make it so I can't leave her. Not that I have any plans to.SFJ
I've thought about doing that. I do have a hard time arguing with her because she is SO illogical. Maybe I will write one, at least to have on hand to give her at the "right" moment.
At my friend's house on Friday night, they were very accommodating to me. They had homemade canned vegetable soup in a tomato based broth and no oil. I had that while everybody else ate shrimp and chicken fettucini alfredo. Sometimes I look at what people eat and can't believe I used to eat that crap. They also served something called Texas caviar, it was a little oily, but very good, would have been better without the oil.
My wife's hatred of broccoli came up during dinner, and she started to make a couple of attack runs on my diet. The common consensus seemed to be, "What ever he is doing it sure seems to be working, how can anybody argue with that, I could never give up meat."
After dinner we split into men and women. One of the guys posted a video on the wife's facebook wall. I'll link it at the end of today's post. It cracked me up.
After we left on Friday we had to stop by the grocery store. The wife seemed much calmer and was even pushing me into making a root vegetable soup, so she could show me how to cook. I was most receptive to her offer. So for the soup, which we made yesterday. I diced up
1 sweet onion
Roasted all of that for 30 minutes @ 350 with 3 cloves of garlic and 1 beech mushroom bunch. Then put it into the crock pot with 8 cups of water (with some vegetable stock). Added Thyme, rosemary and oregano. The wife tasted and added some black pepper, lemon pepper, cinnamon and a tablespoon of molasses. The soup turned out very good, I had two bowls. They wife did not have any, she had already eaten chicken nuggets by the time the soup was ready.
Yesterday morning I went to the gym. I'm sure I'm going to join, but opp'ted for the 7 day trial membership to start with. I did 10 minutes on the rowing machine, the did a light round on the circuit weight machines. I decided I needed some more cardio, I have a treadmill at home. I glanced at the ellipticals. I have not had good experience with those machines. Haven't tried one since becoming the new slimmer version of me, so I hopped on. Wow, that thing was awesome! I loved it, thinking about going back in today, just to get on the elliptical.
The gym is a Gold's Gym. They have a cardio cinema, and lots of classes. Going to have to build up some nerve before I try one of the classes.
I little bit sore this morning, weight is up a tad, probably due to muscle inflammation. Anyways, here's the video. Made me laugh, I don't think the wife has noticed it yet.http://youtu.be/TRW27fyvwCs
