Financial and Physical Fitness: Day Eight


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.

My wife’s mom just came out of surgery and yet she is still managing to keep up with clients and even scheduled a consultation for me tomorrow.

Savings:  $8 transferred to savings, as planned.

Breakfast:  Eggs, ham and cheese on flatbread.  I may try that again tomorrow.

Lunch:  We ate a late breakfast and it was really hot during the day, so I ate a late lunch that consisted Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets.

Dinner:   I made grilled cheese sandwiches and a tomato basil soup.  I have limited skilled in the kitchen, but I can use a frying pan and a sauce pan without any injuries or causing a fire. We are out of milk, so I finally need to go to the store.  My mom tells me that Smart & Final has prices for some foods that are competitive with Costco without having to buy in bulk.  That might be true, but a Costco hot dog for lunch sounds good.  We’ll see how Monday goes.

Exercise:  Sundays are for football.  End of story.

Next week looks to be pretty busy, but we’ll hopefully stay on track with avoiding fast food.
