Still on the weight loss journey… I’m attempting to work out daily, but sometimes I miss a day, I’m really working on my eating, but I still slip. I guess we will wait to see what the scale says on Friday:)
So the other day I was working on a homework assignment and my internet was down. I asked my husband if I could borrow his phone to google something. He hands his phone over and I went to type in “socioeconomic”, but you know when you start to type the letter the past history pulls up? Well his pulls up “sex videos”, seriously what is it with guys? I asked him and he was like, “I just got bored one day and typed it in.” Really? I guess it bothered me because I’m working so hard to lose weight and look good for him and myself that he would be looking up garbage like that. I know the whole guy thing that they really are “visual” creatures, that’s great do you realize how it makes women feel?
Of course as a woman I don’t let it die, I have brought it up the past three days. He is getting very aggravated with me, because it is just a “video” and it’s not like he is checking out other women. Yet it does bother me. I asked him if it would bother him that I was checking out other guys or “sex videos” for myself and he was like, “I don’t know, probably not.” Is this really how you guys feel?
I have been cheated on in the past, so I know that I question numerous things that some people may not. To me it’s one thing if two adults are watching “porn” together, it can be a turn on, but for them to do it separately I guess it just bothers me. Maybe because it was like a secret? Maybe if he would have said, “hey I’ve been checking out these videos online, do you want to check them out with me?”
On another note, to those of you that work out, my biggest pet peeve is when I shut the door to the basement and everyone in my house knows, “mom is working out don’t go down there.” It NEVER fails that my son comes down (he’s almost 10) so it doesn’t bother me as much as when my husband decides to “wash clothes” during this time. So I pause the DVD player and glare at him. I can’t stand attempting to Rock My Body to Shaun T with people coming down to see me and my flab bouncing everywhere. I like to have my own personal space, so that I can exercise without feeling like a jackass. It’s just embarrassing for me, but I do have to laugh because my son comes down to throw his dirty clothes in the laundry room and he sees what I’m doing and he attempts to do the moves to. It is pretty comical and then he says, “Mom you are crazy you know that right? I don’t think anyone should see you doing the booty pop at your age.” I appreciate his youthful commentary, but if my husband were to see me bouncing and booty popping he may be disturbed…. No wait a minute maybe he wouldn’t be looking at those sex videos after all:) Just kidding he may be watching them more often to get that picture out of his head!
