March 2021 Food Challenge - 3/3 & First Vaccine Dose!

March 4th, 2021 at 02:01 pm

Had to pick up a few things  from the grocery store yesterday.  As mentioned in my previous entry, I have found that going for multiple smaller trips helps me stay a little more focused with what I purchase.  It's not uncommon for me to go 2-3 times a week.  This started when I lived in the city, and was walking with my groceries.  I didn't want to carry lots of heavy bags so I would pick things up as I needed them.  I kept it going when I moved into the suburbs, and now prefer it with staying home all the time.  Going to the grocery store is my main "going out" haha.

5.99 - Half & Half - I drink a giant cup of tea every day, and use half & half.  This is non negotiable lol.  I purchase the half gallon container, and will usually buy a new one as soon as I open the old one so I have the backup ready to go.

3.85 - 4 Granny Smith apples - for green smoothies

2.50 - bagged spinach - same as above

2.64 - 4 lemons - same as above

.88 plus tax - a pack of Reese's - while waiting in the checkout line, I decided that my green smoothie had lost appeal for the day and since I had the room in my calorie budget, I could make the swap.  Bonus, it was on sale!!!  

15.94/37.97 MTD (not including $20 for laundry card refill)

This morning, I was very grateful to receive my first dose of the COVID vaccine.  In my state, I am eligible due to an underlying condition - specifically obesity.  I am close to not being obese anymore, but still counts!  I went to a site about 15 minutes away from my house, and was back home an hour and 15 minutes after leaving.  Easy peasy.  I go back in 3 weeks for my second dose.  It made me feel hope.  There is light at the end of this dark tunnel.  It's not as close as some people/states think it is, but it's there.

    I am the same with my coffee creamer. I use International Delight Sweet Cream creamer. And I have a healthy dose (or should I say unhealthy dose) in my coffee every morning. It's just not negotiable for me. I feel like I do really well watching everything else that I eat and drink all day so I give myself this bit of decadence every morning! Great news on getting the vaccine. I'm still waiting to even be eligible in my state.

    I can't wait to get my shots. I'm scheduled for the first one in 2.5 weeks.

    good luck getting your shots. And sounds good. I find that I see deals now on groceries since I'm trying to do the stores.
