Last night this blog hit it's 1000th view. It's pretty impressive for having only had the blog for little over a month. I'm grateful for everyone that has checked out my slow progress. It's some motivation to keep going.
This has been a hard week so far, well today was hard. I had a weak moment in the candy isle at Walgreens. I shouldn't have even gone to there. I knew it when I did it. I just did. I'm disappointed in myself but I have to move on from there and start again tomorrow. The french fries for dinner also didn't help the cause.
Pat and I have sooooooooo many reasons to not go out to eat. I mean, there is the fact that we can make food at home that is healthier because we have control over the ingredients. But there is also the fact that we can save money by eating at home. When we first moved down here we would eat out all the time. We probably ate out more than we ate in. When we decided a year ago to buy a house, we figured out that we need to save some money and the thing that stuck out in our heads was to limit the amount we go out for dinner and/or lunch. We are down to about one night a week out for dinner, which I think is pretty good. So why do I feel guilty about one night a week? Probably because we spent so much money on groceries and we have food in our fridge that is perfectly good. Ugh!
Anyone have healthy ideas for the head of broccoli I have in the fridge that isn't stir fry???
