There is one thing that I have always despised about the Hubby.
It's not that he can put Baby Boo to sleep in a matter of seconds, where as it takes me an hour..
And despite that pissing me off, I don't despise him for it...I simply use love him more for it.
But there is one thing...one very important thing, that makes me angrier than if someone told me there would be no more chocolate in the world.
It's simply the fact of how he eats.
You see, in college when I was overly concerned about food, and would hide behind a couch if someone showed me carbs and told me to eat them, I learned that Hubby, who was BF at the time, could stomach anything. And when we would go out to dinner, he would down a "HUGH JASS" burrito no questions asked, all the while maintaining his sexy athletic figure. I would stare him down as I picked at my dressing-less bowl of lettuce, and wished bad things. Not so evil, but that maybe his BuTt would bubble out the next day from all the meaningless fat and calories he was eating. Needless to say my wishes never came true. =]
Ever since we have been married, I have come to the terms with the fact that some people are just lucky. They can eat whatever they want, and yet look like a champ. It simply is not a struggle for them. (AKA skinny mean girls in highschool =])
But I have learned that "looking thin" means nothing, but feeling healthy means everything. I'm not saying it's not ok to eat pizza, or have dessert. I mean, I do believe in, "living a little.." =] What I am saying is that, now, I simply don't have a desire to eat a whole large pizza from little "sleezers," because I know I will most likely feel like crap after I do.
I eat what I want, and what makes me feel better about my self...
And I feel a whole lot better when I eat one of these...
