Today was my man's birthday. I felt bad that I couldn't afford to get him anything, but at the same time he told me he didn't want anything either. We're pretty simple people when it comes to stuff. Neither of us like a lot of stuff or clutter and there was nothing the he felt he needed so I suppose that's a good thing.
Our best friend, Josh, did take us out to supper at Don and Millie's. We had never been there before and everything seemed fried and full of fat. I did well in ordering and am very proud of myself. These past 2 days have been tough on the fat/grease cravings. Someone at work yesterday suggested Runza temp. Tuesdays for lunch. I held back and ate my salad that I brought. However, I could just smell and taste their fries all day. It was so hard to focus on work and I am rather disgusted with myself that I have become so addicted to that kind of stuff. I came home and made this Italian chicken and Parmesan fries that I found on sparks it was amazing! I started with a chickpea salad that was a huge flop, but the chicken and baked fries were a huge hit!
Then tonight I avoided the cheap margaritas and stuck with water and a smoked chicken wrap. I did have one bite of Ken's cheese frenchie that he ordered and and happy to say that I was totally turned off by the taste.
We also watched Food Inc again the other night which just ticks me off but in a good way. Very eye opening. It really helps me think about what I am purchasing and how it affects not just myself but those growing as well as the environment.
Planned out my meals from now until next Friday and only spent $88 at the store. It's amazing. People complain that it's so much more expensive to eat healthy, but when you cut back the meat and add produce it's coming out to be much more affordable.
