    When I first saw this challenge I thought "she decided to go easy this month" Then I read the posts and I guess I was wrong.

    So I thought about when I eat in the car.

    A candy bar sometimes when really hungry while shopping or on long drive during vacation.

    I guess everyone else eats in the car more often. Maybe longer commutes?

    This is no challenge for me.....We don't eat in the car. Coffee is the only exception.

    I never really understood the eating in the car thing......

    My real trigger is I work overnight shift, and on nights I work, I am napping while the family eats dinner. So I get up and leave for work without having had dinner. Thus, the Golden Arches (I counted one night, my current drive to work takes me past 10 fast food places with drive throughs, my client is moving Saturday, and it's going to be more like 30+) I NEED THIS CHALLENGE!!!)

    We ate dinner in the Car.

    I have to apologize. I posted that this seemed like an easy challenge as we don't eat in the car, Except long trips and the occasional candy bar.

    That was until last night. This ballet mom married band geek was thown into the deep in when our middle school son decided to become a jock and joined the soccer team.

    Little did we know that it would be a ultra tight fit with him needing to be at the soccer game at 3 and daughter needing to be at girl scouts at 6:30. Game ended at 6:20.

    Dinner in the car it is then.

    So it appears this challenge is going to be much harder than I imagined. Apparently, our schedules and life have changed at least until soccer season is over.

    I am in for this one. It is soooo much easier to keep my car clean when I don't let my kids eat in the car. The hard part will be keeping them out of their leftover lunches when I drive them home from school.

    I've done pretty well so far. I did eat in my car yesterday, but only used it as seating _ I was not driving, and there were no tables at the park where I pulled in to wait out a few minutes before an appointment. This is a VERY HARD challenge for me, but it has really made me stop and think about how much junk I eat just for entertainment while driving to work and back.
