Day 8

June 27th, 2010 at 07:14 pm

Week 1 - $23.17, 18.32 eating out, 4.85 groceries
Week 2 - $00.00
Week 3 - $00.00
Week 4 - $00.00

Here's yesterday's menu

1 1/2 c cheerios
skim milk
1/2 c juice

1 banana
handful of walnuts

went to 3 Margaritas and had a cheeseburger and fries. They have THE best cheeseburgers. $8.50 w/tax and tip

celery and peanut butter
glass of skim milk

So week 1 is over with for the challenge. 50% is based on cost, 25% health and 25% creativity. I did ok in the cost department. I think most of my meals were healthy, except for the cheeseburger/fries yesterday. Not so sure about creativity. My meals aren't very creative. I'm going to say the creativity was in buying so much food using coupons and sales.

Overall I feel pretty good about the challenge, except I think about food all day long. Since I'm eating 2 snacks each day, which I don't normally do, I eat every 3 hours or so. It feels like that's all I do, eat, think about what to eat, buy stuff to eat, fix stuff to eat, eat. Then trying to meet all the health recomendations just piles up more thinking time. 2 fruits, 3 veggies, protein with every meal, 3 dairy, 6 whole grains, eat fish several times a week, it's never ending. Maybe if I do it thru the whole challenge it will become easier and I won't need to think so much.

I finished reading the library book On the Edge by Ilona Andrews. Paranormal - excellent
