Spending Freeze: Day 27

DAY 27: $1,895.45 / -2.2 lbs

I feel like today is a pretty big deal day.  They say it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, and I have officially surpassed that amount of days of consistent early morning workouts!  I didn’t think it was possible.  I have maybe lasted 3 days in the past.  Something about the structure of the Spending Freeze and feeling accountable by posting on here everyday has really made the change easier.  I’m not even making excuses when my alarm goes off anymore.  This is HUGE!

EAT

Breakfast:  A new green smoothie.  With my reading last night (I finally finished Mockingjay!  I actually forgot I hadn’t ever finished it until I went to watch the DVD a little while ago.  Weird), I didn’t prep any green smoothies or any work snacks.  So this morning I grabbed my spinach ice cubes, frozen pineapple, Acai smoothie packs, goji berries, flax seed, chia seeds, and put some coconut water in 1 Magic Bullet cup and vanilla almond milk in another.  I threw them in my cooler bag and headed off to work.  I keep my old Magic Bullet at work just for this purpose.  They were perfect!

Lunch:  Chicken Rice Bowls (prepped a couple yesterday with leftovers)

 

Desk Lunch: Chicken & Leftovers Rice Bowl
 

Dinner:  Stuffed Cordon Bleu Chicken Breasts with Corn on the Cob & Potato Cheddar Pierogies, all from the deep freeze.  I don’t know why we’ve been putting off trying these stuffed chicken breasts that I couponed a while ago.   They were great!

SAVE

Another weekend gone by without going out and without a big grocery trip.  I’m going to put my Uber budget ($50) savings up in the total because the month is almost over and we succeeded in not using it on this month’s weekends.  Obviously, if we are not going to the bar we will not need Uber, but normally we would so…SAVINGS! 

Also, the hubs remembered that he had some unused stuff to take back to Home Depot for the lawn mower repair, so we returned it tonight for $17.  I’m considering this a savings because I’d bet this stuff would normally just get stored in the garage without me knowing.  I love returning stuff for money, but the hubs some people would consider it a hassle.

LOVE

I’m pretty sure the best part of my day was when a coworker told me my pants were baggy.  Today it’s not about the number on the scale…it’s about MY PANTS BEING BAGGY!!  Wooohoo!
