Well, say it aint so!
I guess I do spend more than necessary on groceries. I have to shop for four people.
One of us(ME)is eating extremely healthy, two others(them girls of mine)eat only certain things, prepared certain ways, and then there is the other one(yeah, that would be Scott)who will eat anything.
I spent $118 the other night at the store, then spent 30 summin$'s at another place that had some good deals on my tea and tuna and wheat thins and that is not counting the toiletries(that aint groceries!)or the pet foods. Two cats, two dogs and a 55gallon, stocked aquarium. Plus the outside critters....bird feed and squirrel corn
Nor does this include our booze.....although we are really not much of drinkers anymore.
This does not include all the lil store stops along the week that we all make for those "oh, I need this or that" items.
I told Scott that I was gonna ask y'all about your grocery spending and he said, "sooooo, it does not matter what others spend....we have only so much that WE can spend" After reading all your comments, I am just gonna drop that subject. hehehe
I was gonna make chili tonight, but realised that I do not have the corn chips, sour cream or cheese to go with. hhmmmmmm. Those lil things add up and I don't want to add insult to injury with the whole grocery debate here on the hill.
On a some what different note. Last night, Scott comes in to the living room and said that he weighed himself and that he lost 10lbs! I should be happy and really, I am, but DAMN! I am the one that has not been eating meat and eating extremely healthy, so healthy that I scare myself. lol I have not gotten back on the scale and will not for another week or so. I feel that waiting so long between weighing just makes me keep on keeping up the healthy eating. As crazy as it sounds saying this, I do have to say, something is different this time, I feel like I am not deprived, I feel like I am satisfied, I feel GOOD! I am never, ever going to get back in the bad choices again.....EVER!
