Sunday the hubs and I went out for lunch and then headed to the grocery store after picking Miss O up from my parents. Walking through the grocery getting all the things we need for the week got me thinking.
We also buy waaay to much food and end up throwing some of it out because it goes bad before we use it.
Mainly we because we just end up eating out.
While I was pregnant it seemed like eating out was the only was I could get myself to keep food down. I know it sounds crazy but the thought of cooking meat made me sick and Chris knows how to cook about 3 things so we ate out a lot during those 9 months.
It was easy and I didn't have to worry about throwing up the whole time I was cooking some kind of meat.
Well after having Ollie I started cooking at home again. Like the night we got home from the hospital, I went and got some food to cook. One, because I know my hubs was dying for a nice home cooked meal and I won't lie I was pretty excited to start cooking again.
So Sunday the hubs and I decided to give ourselves a little challenge. No eating out for 30 days!
Eating out has just be my thing since I moved away for college. It was easy and cheap. I could have fixed cheaper meals at home probably but I liked the food just not the pounds. Plus it was a way to hang with friends.
So Monday kicked off our 30 day challenge. I'm pretty excited about it! I know we will be great as a team on this. Plus this just means I get to learn more recipes to share with everyone which I love.
So wish us luck! We might need it! :)
What do challenges do you give yourself and family?
