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: $19 transferred to savings, as planned.
Breakfast: A bowl of Cheerios. I think it is the only cereal we have in the house right now.
Lunch: A Costco polish dog and a nonfat yogurt. What, you were expecting something different?
Dinner: I finally got to see my wife for a little bit. We had pancakes at Denny’s for dinner. Restaurant food doesn’t break the rules and it is exactly what she wanted. A phrase I learned a long time ago: happy wife = happy life.
Exercise: I skipped on Wednesday because I was tired and had locked my keys in the truck, so I went to a “make up” class. I went at it hard for 50 minutes.
No special wisdom today, though I was happy to see Lisa and hear about her mom continuing to improve. Even just a few minutes of time with someone can lift their spirits and that did the trick for both of us.
