We all have red light foods. The foods you have a hard time avoiding. The foods that once you start you don’t realize how much you eat. I have a few red light foods in my life. A small list of those is cupcakes, ice cream sandwiches, Girl Scout peanut butter sandwiches, warm buttery bread, garlic bread, and on and on
Last night hubby came home with 2 boxes of mini ice cream sandwiches becasue he had a craving and the kid loves them too. I tried to explain to my husband that those are red-light food for me. I also tired to explain what a red-light food is.
All day Sunday I was what I like to call “off program”, otherwise know as indulging or cheating. I think cheating is too strong and induces too many guilt feelings. Life is to be lived and sometime I choose to live by indulging in food, it is a choice I make fully knowing the consequences of that choice. I had one of the mini sandwiches that hubby gave me while we were watching TV and I wanted another. I sort of snuck another back in the room and he got super super pissed because I just got done explaining it was my red light food. He was upset that I ate another.
So today he told me that he threw away both boxes. He said he didn’t want to tempt me. I thought it was sweet but also upset me a bit. I feel like I could control myself so I was a bit bummed that in some ways he thinks I can’t either. He has been so proud of me and he really wants to see me succeed so I see where he is coming from. He thinks I am making him sound like an ass with the post, but that was not my intention. I don't think he is being one I think he is really helping me out.
