Man I have been slackadaisical recently. As much as I love this blog, I've been playing the avoidance game big time. It's in no small part that I've set myself a bar that might have been a smidge too high. Namel, the 30 Days, 30 Salads thing. I love the concept, and dang it if it won't get done. Just not right now.
I think I'm on the right track though. For the past two weeks I've been consistently bringing in a lunch and veggies for lunch. The main trick has been to eat the same thing every day. Now I'll be honest, the first week, this tactic was born more of gasping bank account than out of any minimalist dogma. I was low on funds and needed 5 lunches that cost $7. Enter, Krakus Polish Ham (thinly sliced), lorraine reduced fat cheese, and some cheapie wheat bread. Combined with some still (mostly) fresh veggies in the crisper and I had the makings of a super-cheap lunch.
Towards the end of the week I had some serious cravings of the "but a delicious burger is just around the corner" variety, but miraculously, the idea of saving some extra money was so appealing that i just shoved the sandwich in my mouth and began chewing before the thoughts could get any louder. This approach has proven effect.
So I'll keep on trucking with this same-old-same-old routine until Saturday, when the hubbster and i head off on a road trip to Colorado. I'll attempt to make some short, phot-oriented posts while I'm out there exploring the mile-high state. Stay tuned!
