???? Down and way too many days to go :-)

I have made a few more poor decisions in the last two weeks. First I got sick, then I got both of my kids sick....so the last two weeks have been pretty unbearable. I found that to make things easier or to brighten up my day I got some fast food. I think in the last two weeks I grabbed food three times. Oh...and with my "new" dairy allergy, that was added to the mix in the last two weeks. Life has just been hard and I felt like quite a bit had been thrown at me. I am definitely not trying to justify anything, it has just been a few hard weeks :-)
It is strange to me that I keep cheating with food. I have been so tempted to go to the store and go shopping....shopping for ANYTHING and yet I resist that. The hardest thing to follow is not adding to our grocery bill. I have to constantly remind myself there is no need to grab food when there is plenty of food at home.

AD - you can totally do this. Richie and I have been living on the Dave Ramsey plan with cash in envelopes for over a year now... it has really helped us!!! One thing that we do (and you can too once your challenge is over)... is set a budget for entertainment/eating out... our thing is Starbucks or Outback steakhouse so we set aside money for that... if we use it on something else, fine, but if not - we get to use it for that... it helps us a lot!
