My day was spent sipping on a green monster
I’ve always been a coupon cutter, and I’ve always loved going to the grocery store and seeing how much money I can save. With TLC’s new show Extreme Couponing it did give me a few tips on how to expand my savings. Will I go through the store with 4 carts and buy 250 toothbrushes? Probably not. Will I buy four boxes of cereal… maybe. Here’s the thing. Times are rough. The other day I filled my car up with gas and spent $61… that’s more than I have ever paid for gas at one time. My heart sunk. If gas is supposed to rise $1.00 to $1.50 more a gallon over the summer… I don’t know what I will do. If I can now buy items with coupons and sales and not have to worry about those items come summer… than that’s one less worry for me. Really I’m not sure I’ll be able to grocery shop if gas gets close to $5.00 a gallon. I can buy essentials and that will be it. So the thing is.. it might seem a little excessive to some, but to me it’s thinking ahead.
Since I love my yogurt combo of plain yogurt, banana and glazed walnuts so much I decided to eat it out of a heart-shaped bowl.
Lunch is the last of the leftover pizza.
I love pizza, but I don’t love having to have it over a few days. I don’t waster food though, so I’ll eat in until it’s gone.
Snacks will be
Dinner is chicken tortilla soup that I made the other day. The soup is so- so. I wasn’t too impressed with the recipe so I threw the recipe away. I have too many recipes to try to save one that I’m not impressed with.
Tomorrow I’m going to start tracking my calories again and start my workout’s back up. I’ve been slacking long enough. One thing I am truly afraid of is getting on the scale. I do not want to see those numbers, but I feel I need to see where I’m starting at. I’m never been more terrified of the scale than I am right now. I need to realize that I have the power to change the number scale. The numbers will not change on their own.
