Let me start this blog off by saying that I'm thrilled for the break in the heat that we have been having. I have had my a/c off for three days now. My electric bill has been up in the $200.00 range the past two months. I'm thrilled to give the old a/c a break.
It's also been some great running weather. Nothing like the rush of the cool wind on your face. Instead of the humidity in the air adding to the sweat all ready running down everywhere. It has been nice.
DQ starts school (2nd grade) tomorrow... and I haven't back to school shopped yet. I thought about it countless times... but I didn't do it. Now I get to run out and do it all last minute on my lunch break today. I'm so smooth! V starts Kindergarten on Friday. She is my wild card. So I am nervous about it for her. She seems nervous to leave daycare too, but I've been trying to ease her into it. We have been talking about it a lot. Hopefully that will help.
I have been exercising faithfully for 6 weeks now. I am proud of that. But I haven't seen any loss. I assume it is because I am still eating pretty poorly. So.... I sent M to the grocery yesterday and he bought healthy things. Fresh fruits/veggies. Portabello mushrooms (to make burgers... that I will be trying for the first time ever... I'm not much of a fungus eater). Anyway - long story short.... it was expensive. I have budgeted $100.00 per week for our groceries (family of 4), and he spent $165. That is part of the reason I hate eating healthy.... it's so expensive. A tiny box of wild rice was $4.00. I'm trying to use a SP Meal plan, because planning what to eat myself ends in disaster then I get frustrated and binge. There were so many items on the shopping list! I didn't even get them all either. Just crazy. So my question to you is - what are your eating healthy on a budget secrets?
