Financial and Physical Fitness: Day Nineteen

Old Denny's sign

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.
