I meant to write this up earlier but I was so disappointed with myself today. I was cleaning up today and started cleaning up the refrigerator because it needed to be cleaned out so I could compile our grocery list. I threw out so much food. I ended up throwing out lettuce, an apple, cucumber, leftover fish, rice and veggies, and leftover cranberry sauce just to name a few. I hate throwing out food. I work so hard to save money on our food budget but when we waste that much of it we are just wasting money. I know that being sick for a week had a lot to do with it. All of the planned meals that week were skipped and the hubby had to fend for himself.
I am definitely VERY motivated to get back on track. I have gone through our dinner menu and my baking challenge menu and have our grocery list made. I think I am going to make myself eat leftovers for lunch whenever there are any. That will definitely take care of them. I also have to get better about using up our produce. I should be eating it but it just doesn't happen sometimes. So I am definitely motivated to get back on track. I fully admit that I have slacked up a little lately. Between buying the extras for the Holiday Challenge and recovering from being sick I just lost my motivation. It's back and I am on a mission!
