Spending Freeze: Day 28

DAY 28: $1,905.45 / -2.2 lbs

Wow!  Only two more days left!  I’ve practically been dreaming about my Friday grocery list.  I’m probably annoying people by talking about it, but I’m mainly longing for scallions, black olives, romaine, zucchini, cheese (any variety that melts well), and parchment paper.  Uhhh yeah…not to eat, of course…I just miss it’s convenience.  And I’m sure if we asked the hubs he would say, unfrozen meat…and non-center cut bacon.  Right, bud?

Unfortunately, I looked at my iphone photos tonight and realized I didn’t take any pictures for you today.  It was a pretty gloomy day and then it got hectic so I think my head just wasn’t in the right place.  I’ll try to be better tomorrow!

EAT

Breakfast:  Cinnamon Raisin Toast (I’ve kept the loaf in the freezer at work for days when I forget breakfast or a snack.  It really helps because I don’t let myself get so hungry that I want to make a super bad decision…like spend money).

Lunch:  Chicken & Rice Bowl like yesterday only I mixed in buffalo sauce and ranch…omg

Dinner:  Frozen Pizza with black olives!  It’s like my dreams for black olives came true!  Well, not really, but I almost can’t remember what else was on the pizza since I was so distracted by the olives.  It said supreme, but I removed the sausage and pepperoni to save calories…so I guess I wasn’t completely distracted.

SAVE

I knew the hubs was out of deli meat, that we didn’t have any meat thawed, and that he didn’t have any substantial leftovers to constitute a man meal.  So this morning, I got up earlier than usual to throw the rest of the freezer chicken breasts in the crockpot so they’d be ready for him to eat at lunch.  He sent me a snapchat of his chicken lunch with the addition of mashed potatoes he made.  I’m putting this under “SAVE” because normally I would assume he would just figure out lunch on his own and normally he might just run out and buy food for ten bucks or so.  I love our teamwork here and our proactive thinking to stay on plan…and that he made a pantry side dish. 🙂

LOVE

I ran on the treadmill tonight for my second workout of the day.  I was tired, but knew my body needed to burn some extra calories if I was going to eat that frozen pizza.  It energized me, distracted me, and empowered me realizing that I was becoming more self aware of my body’s needs.  Not that it needs frozen pizza…hence why I was running…lol.  Anyway, now my body severely needs sleep so…Good Night!
