Spending Freeze: Day 17

DAY 17:  $868.92 / +0.4 lbs

Sorry about yesterday.  I got a little…excited.  But that’s what happens when I strongly restrict myself from something and then it’s put right in front of me!  I was way too thrilled to eat food outside of the house that I couldn’t even THINK about calories.  While I didn’t spend any money, I didn’t make healthy choices (I’m sure you noticed today’s weight gain!), but I didn’t super overeat or anything.  I hope the lesson here is when I have the opportunity to spend money again once May hits, that I am smart about it and prepared not to go overboard.

It was a late night last night, but I still managed to get up for the last 5:30 am Body Revolution workout for the week.  We have cardio tomorrow and then that marks 2 weeks down, 10 more to go!

EAT

Breakfast:  Glowing Green Smoothie and Cinnamon Raisin Toast (and only ONE cup of coffee!)  

Lunch: Lentil Soup

 

Desk Lunch: Slow Cooker Lentil Soup
 

Dinner: Garlic Knots and Meatballs (a very “freezer” meal tonight) 

Garlic Knots & Tomato Sauce (Meatballs were late to the party)
 

I’m trying out a new bread recipe tonight.  I have to let the dough do it’s thing overnight, but hopefully we’ll be able to have toast for breakfast tomorrow!

 

No-Knead Bread dough ready to rise!
 

SAVE

I used my Easter amazon.com gift card from my Ps to buy 2 things I really wanted.  They are definitely not a NEED and definitely very “girly” of me.  But if I’m going to be doing my own pedicures, I kind of do NEED a pumice stone, right?  Then the beautyblender has been on my wish list for so long that when I saw that it was back on Amazon Prime I couldn’t pass it up!  

 

Amazon Easter gifts arrived today: beautyblender and a pumice stone 🙂
  

LOVE

I did some coupon prep tonight so that I can go get some freebies tomorrow.  Some people look at couponing as too much work, but I love it.  I’m pretty organized about it, so it’s more about the thrill of shopping at such an awesome discount.  If all goes well tomorrow I’ll be able to move this topic up to the SAVE section.  

Happy Friday!  

– Kelly
