Thursday Thoughts, July 18th
Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve, friends! Hope everyone has had a great week so far! I was reminded earlier this week just how important it was for me that I roasted those veggies over the weekend. We had a very rough night dealing with insomnia. If you have never dealt with insomnia, be grateful! Quite honestly, if I hadn’t prepared some roasted veggies and had some chicken that I had purchased pre-cooked, I likely would have ordered out on Tuesday. If I’d ordered out, it most likely wouldn’t have been on plan. I have really been trying to stay on plan so the fact I did some prep saved me time on the back-end, not to mention calories! I think we can all agree that there are times, like when we are tired, that we would be more likely to go with whatever is convenient.
For the coming week, I will be trying to focus on using the items in my freezer. Do you do that periodically? If you do, how often do you do it? I think I am also going to focus on grocery orders vs. going to the store to shop. I tend to find things I really don’t need so I think it may be a good option until I can get things under control. In the past, in order to help with expenses while on vacation, we tend to pack an ice chest with lunch meat, etc. so we can eat and not spend a small fortune. How do you manage to budget on vacation?
