This weekend was pretty good and I managed to avoid fast food altogether, though I did go out to eat on Friday and got something less than great for me. We had healthy meals over the weekend and even manage a vegan meal on Sunday night, so we’re definitely heading in the right direction, but I don’t know how prepared we will be on the first day of the challenge. One of the biggest challenges, not including the convenience factor, is the cost. While meat used to be the most expensive item we had to buy, we’ve found that cutting it out has not really saved us any money. In fact, our grocery bill has gone up some. One of these days I’m going to have to do a grocery bill analysis and see where the money is really going, but for now it looks like whole foods could bankrupt us.
So Saturday’s Karate session was awesome. I earned my first stripe on my white belt. Now I understand this is the first step in a VERY long process, but it felt good to get there. What made it truly awesome was when Connor said, “Good job, daddy. I’m proud of you.” Talk about a moonshot!
