Happy New Year's

It's New Year's eve here.  Hubby caught a cold and is in bed, sick.  Tomorrow is our anniversary.  He said, "pick yourself up a really nice anniversary card."  I laughed!  Poor guy - at least he's thinking about it!  I hope he's better in the morning.  Obviously we're not staying up to watch the ball drop.

Tomorrow, I am starting a healthy eating plan.  It will be interesting.  He will either have to eat what I do, or fix for himself.  What do you think?  I'm also going to ask him to get on the treadmill every single day.  I'm hoping that if I do it, he will....even if it's out of guilt.

Here is wishing each of you a year where your spouse follows the "rules" and does whatever it takes to keep his/her diabetes in control.  Let's hope the roller coaster is a flat ride in 2012!

Happy new year to you! As for your eating plan, good for you. After all, you have to be healthy to deal with ongoing issues for both of you.

I finally made the decision this past year to prepare only food that I knew was good for BOTH of us, at least 90% of the time. Lots of emphasis on veggies and fruits. The result? I lost 15 pounds, and am in a smaller size than I've been in years. Feels absolutely wonderful. Even had to go buy some new clothes. However, my husband's knee-jerk reaction was to buy even more junk than usual. It was almost like he went into panic-mode. I have had to make the decision that I do NOT have to get into the crap that he buys (which I used to do), but neither can I control what he thinks he needs to have in the house. But . . . I will not buy it for him!
