I cannot believe it has been a whole month since I have last posted. Where does the time go? I definitely am not one of those "good" bloggers who blog 1-3 times a day! I try, I have the best intentions, then a month goes by!
Anyway, on to the title of this post. Another challenge is in our midst people! ;) Yes, I sound so serious. It's not that bad. I hope not anyway. After looking over our finances the last month I realized we ate out A LOT!! That is saying a lot for us, because we do our fair share of eating out. If I think it is to much then there is a problem.
With that being said. The hubs and I have decided to go from 1 of his paychecks to the next with NO eating out. That is 28 days of no fast food, no Arby-Q's, no Angela's fajita's, and no chicken nuggets. For us eating out is more of a convenience thing. We don't do it because we have to, we do it because we are tired and neither of us want to cook. Our night meal is the equivalent to most people's lunch. I generally make a healthy good home-cooked lunch. That is our family meal. I stay at home and the hubs works, so for us that just works. So by the time supper comes around, I'm tired and the hubs doesn't get home until at least 6 most nights.
There will be a couple of days in there where we won't worry. For instance, the 21st we will both be out of town for various reasons, so we crossed that day out and then we are ending on the 19th since it is a Sunday. So we are cutting out 2 days. Not bad.
For those of you saying this isn't a challenge, well, then you don't know me very well! This will be more challenging for me then working out everyday or giving birth. So I may be a little dramatic, but I'm serious too. :)
So, watch for menu planning again and yummy recipes to come. We start in T-Minus 3 days!
