Speaking of yogurt. Tuesday morning, I was pressed for time so I decided that, for breakfast, I would just get some yogurt when the store opened. My body was angry at me because I ususally eat breakfast @ 6:30 AM, so waiting until 8 when the store opened was not such a brilliant idea. Then, my options were a little disheartening. The one I picked kind of curdled when I stirred it and I had to decide whether or not to brave it. I took two Lactaids (is that cheating? because I clearly did not buy them with Challenge Money- I wouldn't have been able to afford them anyway, expensive little buggers) and went for it. The yogurt was 4 for .99, so I thought- kool, I can have this today and tomorrow. No go. I had to throw it out. The sound of my stomach rumbling for the rest of the morning was confirmation enough that I had done the right thing. (Don't tell my mother! she raised five children and NOTHING went to waste, mostly because of my brother- the human garbage disposal, but still...)
I was glad to split a Blueberry muffin with my new neighbor David (thanks again!).
Monday night, we ended up having a nice salad instead of turkey hot dogs for dinner. So, the hot dog became my lunch on Tuesday. For dinner we had quesadillas...those things are dangerously good!
I'm out of milk and cereal, so breakfast has become a piece of toast. In Tuesday's mail, I got a coupon for a free Chicken Sandwich at McDonald's- good timing or what?? So that was my lunch today. I'll probably have either a Turkey wrap or a PB&J sandwich for dinner (from my church- we make PB&J sandwiches every Wednesday to pass out on Thursdays to the homeless and to migrant workers and we're allowed to eat while we work!).
Like Brenda, I've found myself eating my fair share of candy, which, considering it's bountiful supply, I suspect grows on a tree somewhere in this office!
Tomorrow I will use my other coupon for a Chicken Biscuit at McDonald's for breakfast (if I feel like spending the time to go there). My friend Christina offered to share her lunch with me and dinner is undecided.
What I have left is a few slices from that loaf of bread, several tortillas,sliced cheese, lettuce that is on it's way out, a can of chili beans, two of the 4 pack tomatoes- they are getting more and more soft (I probably would have bought just one, but they didn't have any singles at the time of my shopping trip), half a pack of hot dogs (I bought some more), some lunch meat, 3 cans of tuna and Mayo (never got around to making tuna sandwiches). I believe that's pretty much it. I wasn't always sure what my husband was eating because I leave for work before he does (there was also talk of quitting), but judging by the fact that there is no more milk, cereal, we finished a pack of hot dogs, one can of tuna is gone and the lunch meat is just about finished...I'd say he's been eating breakfast and fixing some sort of lunch.
I thought for sure I'd have money left over and I do...3 whole cents!! (wow)
I must clear this up...I meant that eating breakfast is important for health reasons. It gives your body energy to start your day. That said, I can't believe Light n Fit is considered yogurt- yick! It really takes some doing to pick a good yogurt though.
