30 in 30 – No Eating Out

I have been inspired by my girl T.B. She did a 30 in 30 that included working out 1 hr per day for 30 days. I know that is not gonna happen for me with my current schedule; however, I came up with a variation of the challenge – no eating out at fast food, restaurants, takeouts for 30 days. This means going to the grocery store, cooking my own meals, and bringing my lunch to work every single day for 30 days.

So, what is the point?

The point is to take small steps toward my long term goals of physical and financial health. What does 30 in 30 have to do with finances? Here is the best part. All of the money that you would have spent on lunches and lattes, you get to place in  a jar. Then you decide at day 31 what you would like to do with it. It is all yours now that you have rescued it from Chic Fil A and McDonalds.

Today I had a soy crumbles taco on flat bread with an avocado for lunch. Not sure of the calorie count but I am certain it is much better than the 915 Calorie burrito bowl I had the other day from Chipotle. That's 8.64 in my jar!

Commitments are always better when there are others invested in the goal as well. Nothing like support and accountability to help propel you forward.

So, who is with me?
