Financial and Physical Fitness: Day One

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese

This is part of an ongoing going series about eating better by avoiding fast food during September and setting aside money under a forced savings plan.  Click here to read the introduction and click here to read other stories in the series.  Lisa and I will be sharing our experiences and what we learn during this experiment.

Savings:  $1 transferred to savings, as planned.

Breakfast:  A bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios and some bacon.  It was cheap and we already had what we needed in the house.

Lunch:  Salad and leftover pizza from Filippi’s Pizza Grotto.  Okay, not the most nutritious lunch, but it wasn’t fast food and it was free.  Well, free in the sense my dad paid for dinner when we went out to celebrate my mom’s birthday.  But I at least ate a salad.

Dinner:   Kielbasa sausage, Kraft macaroni and cheese and broccoli.  Not the healthiest, but it was cheap and everything came from Costco.

Exercise:  Nothing beyond normal household activities, but donating blood yesterday has to count for something.

Next goal:  Keep up with the savings, plan better meals and continue to avoid fast food.
