1,300 Calories and 80 grams of Fat

Every evening, around 9:00, my, tall, skinny, husband gets up and heads to the kitchen to pull out his nightly pint of Ben & Jerry's. Then he grabs a baby spoon, climbs back into his chair, and takes about an hour to eat the entire thing, savoring every single tiny little bite he takes. That's typically around 1,300 calories and 80 grams of fat each night.

I (the one who only has to lick a candy kiss for it to show up on my thighs) on the other hand, sneak into the kitchen, guilty that my sweet tooth is kicking in, rummage through the cupboard and fridge until I choose from either the 100-calorie currently stocked snack or 10 calorie jello cup with sugar free Cool Whip.
That's just not fair.
So, I've started buying him the Chubby Hubby flavor. At least it makes me feel better and I feel like I'm subliminally sending him a message. It will catch up with him one day, mark my word.

  1. I feel your pain! My husband can eat whatever he wants! I can smell something yummy and gain a couple of pounds!

  2. That's hilarious!

    I feel you though...my husband is super skinny and I'm constantly struggling. He's not a good influence!!

  3. It's the opposite in my house. My man is on a STRICT diet (self-imposed) and I can't seem to get enough to eat these days. So I have candy bars and chips stashed all around my office so I can at least satisfy that urge part of the time.

  4. Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day minus the calories! I have tagged you-so when or if you get a moment, stop by...

  5. It's just not fair! First men the best eye lashes & never have to use mascara to do it. Then they have this insane metabolism that allows them to eat whatever they want.

  8. Haha, but it's just so good! I stared for about 15 minutes into an ice cream cooler the other day (I was treating myself), debating whether I should buy a pint of chubby hubby and instead opted for a single serving (1/2 cup... they make those!) of Haagen Daas chocolate. Just thinking of Chubby Hubby probably just made me gain a pound! lol

  9. That is so funny! I'm not a big ice cream fan, but every once in a while I crave it. I usually end up with Haagen Daas light vanilla. :)

  10. This makes me so sad...I LOVE Chubby Hubby. It's my absolutely favorite!!

  11. My "Husband of Wonder" is the same way and I hate him.. Every Saturday he eats half a carton of some form of Chocolate...that's his dinner. He's been doing this for 23 years now and it still hasn't caught up with him....NOT FAIR

  12. Men gain weight in their bellies first it seems & they can hide it by just wearing an untucked polo or t-shirt. Women do that & people ask if you are pregnant - which only compounds the problem! It's a cruel world!

  13. That is sooo not fair! That sounds just like my hubby. Maybe I need to get him Chubby Hubby too!

    ReplyDelete
  14. This sounds exactly like something that would happen in our house with my 6'1", athletic husband who can eat whatever he wants and my 5'1" self, who has to watch every morsel! I LOVE the Chubby Hubby idea! Ha!

  15. I'm right there with you ~ sadly, I'd still reach for the Chubby Hubby as it's my favorite B&J's ice cream!

  16. Haha! I love that you bought him Chubby Hubby. All I have to do is think about Ben and Jerry's and I gain 5 lbs.

  17. LOVE IT! That absolutely cracked me up and is the same with me and my husband. My tall, athletic in shape husband can eat a whole pizza, entire cookie cake or the whole buffet at the chinese place and be just fine... yet if I even think about eating 1/4 of that.. I'm up a jeans size. Gotta love that.

    I think I'll be looking for that in our Kroger for my dear husband :)

  18. (cracking up picturing this happen at your house) I am so glad jamie has a potbelly!

  19. OMG. This is the truest thing I've ever heard. I mean seriously men can eat anything! SO ANNOYING. I have noticed hubby has gained a little weight during my pregnancy though!

  20. oh i am so jealous of his metabolism! although my darling boyfriend is currently counting calories and i sit around munching reeses peanut butter hearts...not good.

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
