It’s easier to diet alone

November 21, 2008

I started back on a healthy track a week ago.  I was really ready and it wasn’t so hard.

My husband was also out of town.

He came back Tuesday and it’s been progressively harder every day.

There are so many things I love about this man, but his knowledge of healthy eating is non existent, and his love of good living is very strong.  He came back from the butcher yesterday proudly telling me he’d bought meat for fondue Bourguinon.  Do you know what that is?  It’s cubes of beef that you cook in a fondue pot in OIL.  That you then dip into basically mayonnaise-type sauces.   I guess it’s diet food if you are doing hard-core Atkins.  For anyone else it’s a thousand ways to say “heart attack express”.

Sigh.

He also came home with panna cotta.  What is he thinking?  He’s thinking it looked good, that he knows I like it, etc.  In fact, I do love panna cotta, but I passed it up without too much hassle (I have all that leftover applesauce!).

Dinner tonight – for me, I mean, will be spinach, roasted veggies and soup.  I may have a few pieces of the fondue with him, but I promise to report on how many pieces of flesh I drowned in oil and then doused with greasy sauce.  (hoping I’m psyching myself into moderation here!)
