February 4th, 2017 Never Tried
I did a location broadcast from a grocery store's "massive meat sale" today--and it was a big success. Top sirloin for $3.58 a pound made its way into my cart. I'm a bargain hunter at the grocery store. I used some of the top sirloin for kabobs tonight and if my math is right, the entire meal cost, produce and everything, was right at about $2.25. If you follow my Twitter, you know I've enjoyed avocado a lot lately--at 39 and 44 cents each, it's just too good of a deal to pass up. And I love avocado!
I can remember saying "I can't afford to eat well," and after making it a priority in my life, I realize it was complete nonsense. I suppose when you're spending upwards of $10 to sometimes $20 a day on fast food (like I did at one time) any justification works. How would I have known anyway?? I never tried to eat well in my 500 pound days. All I know is, today, I rarely prepare a meal that exceeds three or four bucks--and it's most usually less than three. I'll occasionally splurge on something really special--but even then, it cost less than my old favorite combo meal in the drive-through.
Family came up from Stillwater to visit with mom today. We all gathered for a visit and meal out at mom's favorite place to eat around here. My food schedule today didn't mesh with the time well--so I enjoyed something small as a holdover until dinner at home--and I simply enjoyed the visit. Mom has transitioned from skilled to long term care, so now she can come and go as she pleases. That's exciting for her!
Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained refined sugar-free. I exceeded my daily water goal. And I maintained excellent support communications.
