Financial and Physical Fitness: Day Eleven

Grand Opening Preview

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.
