So much has happened with the beginning of this year. I have tried to get back on the program after being Vegetarian/Vegan.
My problem has been, and I am sure I am not the only one. Is I just can't afford the cost of the food necessary for me to stay with the clean eating.
I live in the desert, most all our food, well, all our food is trucked in, including fresh veges and fruit. So can you imagine the cost, probably twice as much as areas with farms to provide to the grocery stores. Rising gas prices, are also an added reason, to hike those prices. We have to go 80 miles to the nearest discount grocery store.
So you know what food is cheap! Yes the bad food is cheap. I shop at Walmart (not super) for a lot of my grocery items now, until things start to happen. I have been working on creating a garden bed (2) but this cost too. I need to fill it with my compost (purchased) not enough here to fill one they are both 4'8" x 9'4" So a lot to fill.
And our gas has been @ $4.00+ for sometime now.
I miss my program, and have been off the wagon, for awhile. I want to come back.
But things have to change cost wise, because my income isn't working with the price hikes.
I do manage to check in and spin for my Spark points. I can't wait, to start again.
