The Captain and I have this "discussion" at least twice a week, probably more. So I thought I would bring you all in on our little debate.
So, I have the Captain 'trained' to make healthy meals (kinda). We usually have a protein (fish, chicken, etc) and some type of veggie. But he always wants a carb - heck, he's a big, tall boy - he can have carbs for dinner. I tend to do my carbs in the morning. So he will make a little rice or cous cous or something to go with his dinner.
Then after dinner, I usually sneak into the pantry and grab some M&M's or a couple nibbles of ice cream. This is where the debate comes in. The Captain always says, "Why on earth do you skip on the carbs, but you'll eat that crap? That just doesn't make sense."
It makes perfect sense to me. If I am going to have an additional caloric intake, it's going to be something I really enjoy. I skip on the stinkin' rice so I CAN eat a little treat if my heart desires.
What do you guys think? Do you justify things like this in your head? Or am I just a freak?
