I want to make it a point to keep my blog updated this year. So I can keep track of how I am doing with my goals for the year.

I had my first grocery shopping trip of the year. I spent a total of $36. I bought all the groceries I need for the week, plus toothpaste, tissues, and trashbags. I bought 4 tubes of toothpaste because there was a promotion for $4 off/4 Proctor & Gamble products. I should have no excuse to eat out this week. I'm going to try to eat all meals at home this week.

I ate out again today, technically twice. After attending church with my dbf, we went to eat at Spangles and had hamburgers, fries & pop. Then for dinner, I attended a Booster Club party and since I paid for my meal, I have to count it as a meal eaten out. So, that puts me at 5 times eaten out. That was $18.00 added to the eating out budget for the month. All meals were eaten at home on Saturday.

On the weightloss front, I had my official initial weigh in for the year on Saturday. I have officially made my goal to lose and keep off 15 pounds. On Sunday morning, I weighed again and had already lost 1.2lbs! I know the first week, I always lose a lot. Although today was not a good day for losing weight because I ate out twice. I need to do better at that, but I am making strides.

All for now...
