So I know last week was really the first full work week of the new year but it felt like we were all just getting our sea legs back. This week, I feel like I’m finally getting back in the groove. If for no other reason than that I have about a million meetings scheduled.
We already talked about how I’m not making any new year’s resolutions, but I will say that I have been trying to save more money lately. At the end of the year, we noticed how much we mindlessly spend on eating out, coffee and buying random things at the store that you truly do not need. I’m trying to focus on the whole quality over quantity mindset these days and figure if I can save a little here and there then I can splurge on the good stuff. But really,my main life goal should be to harness the willpower to walk into the drugstore for paper towels and walk out with just that. No lipsticks, candy, magazines, random face wash or coloring books for the kids necessary.
Until I figure out how to make the latter happen, I’m doing what I can by eating at home more often and bringing my lunch to the office whenever possible. Even if it’s only once or twice a week. Honestly, I don’t think about it when it’s just $10 here and there but then at the end of the week, you notice how much it all adds up. Not to mention, it’s not the healthiest option the majority of the time.
Recently, Healthy Choice asked me to try out a couple of its new morning, as well as vegan and vegetarian power bowls, which fit the bill when it comes to saving money and getting a good meal that won’t make you feel like you need a nap afterwards. Plus Drew has been on this whole KETO kick (I dabble but am certainly not committed to the lifestyle) so he was into trying them out too.
