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: $11 transferred to savings, as planned.
Breakfast: A bowl of Trix and fruit: watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew. I am all about simplicity.
Lunch: Costco hot dog, same as yesterday. I also had a nonfat yogurt. Total cost: $3.08 and is probably the most expensive meal I’ve had all week.
Dinner: Beef burrito, beans and a quesadilla. I have to thank my mom for the burrito and beans, but I made the quesadilla.
Exercise: Full body with some cardio, abs and arms. Tomorrow is an off day.
In addition to the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it is also the anniversary date of my wife joining me with the law office. Things were a bit rough at first, but we’ve become a pretty good team. But each day that she is away helping her mom, I learn how much of a pain it could be to keep our family of 3 and the office running smoothly. But the fast food is still being kept to a minimum and there’s still food in the house. Tomorrow is another day.
