So, according to our CC bill, we spent $536.63 in a 30 day period on restaurants.
$536.63…! That’s almost as much as we spent on rent. That’s terrible. Check out what we spent in a 12-month period:
Luckily… Dr. G’s “lesson” today notes the importance of packing a lunch. In general, it results in a decrease of calories, but an increase in quality of calories consumed. Plus it can get rid of all those leftovers I keep throwing away! My sweet husband has promised to join me in the bag-lunch effort. He reminded me this morning to pack a lunch before leaving for breakfast @ IHOP – haha! Oh, the irony. We decided, however, not to curtail our spending on restaurants when it was intentional relationship-building time, but rather to cut out the wasteful spending we (mostly I, I think) have been doing. IHOP this morning was a meeting with my prayer partner: i.e. intentional relationship-building.
Oh, and a note on breakfast: I couldn’t finish it! Well, I could have, but I didn’t! I was full, so I just stopped eating. ‘Twas an odd sensation. Now I’ve eaten about half of my packed lunch (leftover goulash, cottage cheese, yogurt & corn-on-the-cob), and I’m completely full. Dessert doesn’t even sound enticing to me at the moment.
I hope I’m not getting sick – haha!
