with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
When I was growing up, I was what I like to refer to as a “big girl”. I was not obese, no, but I definitely wasn’t blessed with a speedy metabolism. Throw in a family that was big on eating “hearty” meals and my penchant for eating chips and I was a good thirty pounds heavier than I am now. In my mid-twenties I finally learned what it meant to eat balanced meals (Read: Not pasta or rice-laden meals every night, more protein and vegetables, etc.) and to exercise and I got to a healthier weight.
My husband is one of those tall drinks of water who has a raging metabolism. It’s slowed down a bit in our nearly ten years of marriage, but he can definitely get away with eating more dessert than I can. As a general rule, though, he likes to eat balanced, healthy meals and supports me when I try to do things like regular meatless meals and also by joining in on my “Friday night cheat night.” He draws the line at cauliflower and brussel sprouts in side dishes, though. He has his limits.
How about you guys? Do you share similar eating habits or do you find a balance between the two?
