Last night when I said I needed to get myself ready for the work week, I really meant plopping on the couch and devouring this…
Funny story how I got that…
A week ago or so J’s sister texted me that she had food for us and would be putting it the freezer. I had no clue what she was talking about, but ok, cool thanks!
I got home that day and my freezer was stocked full of Digiorno pizzas, M & M ice cream sandwiches and Twix ice cream deliciousness. Now, when I am 4,000 pounds and J breaks up with me I will be blaming her and only her for forcing me to eat all this fatty delicious food before it goes bad 😛
Tonight I plan on making dinner and an apple crisp! Just some more junk food deliciousness!
It will be a complete rest day for this girl. I have done some sort of cross training every day since the marathon and mentally, I need a break. I don’t know why but if I look back at my schedule and see there has been no complete rest day, my head gets all weird. So, in order to prevent the weirdness I am taking today off!
I am having a hard time lately with food shopping….
I go to the store every weekend for a bigger food shop and end up spending about 60-80$. But I don’t go with a plan. I just go and buy stuff.
Mistake 1- No plan
It never fails that since I don’t have any specific meals in mind I am always short 1 or 2 ingredients, so back the store I go. I end up going back to the store at least 2 more times that week and spend another 20-40$ more each time. And that’s being nice…usually I spend a little more than that!
Mistake 2- Indecisiveness
My nickname is Fickle Fran. I have SUCH a hard time making decisions. And once I do I change my mind about 15 time more. No joke. So for me to write out a menu for the week on Sunday is hard…by Monday night tacos sound way better than grilled chicken.
Mistake 3- No budget
Like I said, I go to the food store and just buy stuff. I bring my wallet and pay when I am done. Easy.
I am working on being better about food shopping and not spending ALL THE MONEY on food… hopefully I can start by correcting those three major mistakes.
Any suggestions though, send them my way!
Do you have a food shopping method that works well and want to share?!
