A Food Fiasco

24 Oct

My wife is pregnant (as many of you know).  Somehow, I caught the cravings that she is supposed to have.  Yesterday, my diet consisted of Burger King, cookies, casserole, chocolate covered pretzels and Reese’s.

I’m ashamed for eating like this, but boy, I’ve been really enjoying it.

Fast Food Insurance (1)It will come to an end soon.  Honestly, it will.  I consider myself pretty health conscience.  I workout, do cardio and when it comes to eating, well, typically it’s not THAT bad.  I eat a lot of salad, chicken and try to avoid red meat.  I hear that’s better for a person, so I go along with it.  Plus, I don’t drink pop, typically I don’t eat sweets and mostly drink water.  My biggest vice – up until this point – is coffee.  Oh, and the occasional craft beer (however, that’s just maybe once or twice on the weekend).  See, I’m good.

But again, I have the cravings now.  I’ve heard of this happening to other husbands.  I believe it’s a mental thing and I just use my wife being pregnant as an excuse to eat like crap, but I’m taking it and running with it.  Just like the sleeping in that I mentioned yesterday, this too is a trend that won’t be going on for long.  I’m just taking advantage.  God forbid I teach my daughter to eat bad.  Nope.  I’ll be the prime example of health.  (Except, of course, when there’s a donut sale down the road at Tim Hortons.)

Today should be a bit better.  I devoured all the chocolate pretzels – so no more of those.  But, unfortunately there are still Reese’s in the freezer.  Oh, and cookies.

I guess I’ll be ashamed for my eating maybe one more day.

But boy, is it tasty.

    How much weight have you gained?

      Surprising, with all my bad eating habits, not much. But, I walk a lot and have been keeping up at the gym. Doesn’t mean my poor blood pressure is saying, “What the hell are you doing?!” I’ll get back on track soon….
