Day one


Ring ring, ring ring.



“Hello?”



“Honey, it’s me.”



“Hey now! How did you enjoy lunch?”



“Well, ah, that’s what I’m calling about… I think I left half of it at home?”



“Did you pick up the embarrassing orange and green lion lunchbox out of the fridge?”



“Yeah, but that’s all I picked up. It’s only got some rocket, a tin of tuna and one slice of wholemeal bread in it.”


“Yep. That’s lunch.”


“That’s it?”


“That’s it. Oh, there was supposed to be a carrot and some tomatoes and a yoghurt, but we didn’t have any of that in the fridge so I left it out.”


“Oh. Ah, okay. Um, thanks sweetie. I really appreciate you taking control of the food situation. Are you, um, going shopping tonight? To get some, you know, supplies in?”


“Of course I am. See you at home for dinner.”


“Yeah, I really, really, really can’t wait for dinner.”

I can't work out which one is you and which one is him! I'd be bereft if that was all I found in my lunchbox...

Oh wait - I just read the previous post. Wow - your commando is a tough guy.

oh dear...
maybe you could give him a few pointers (you know, like stirfries, or lentil soup, or like a nice big salad roll with some low fat cheese???)

Maybe you could just use today as your own exercise in 'noticing hunger'??

It's a shock to the system, when you eat what the body needs, rather than what our tummies are conditioned to.....xx

PS I am deeply jealous. My lovely husband would never think to do this. Never. Let alone go shopping too...

Oh dear. More tuna salads. Only just tuna and lettuce really. I hope it gets better!

You're one lucky woman! I'd love for my hubby to do this - but I know that I'd end up either killing or divorcing him!! Good luck. B.
