Just checking in

April 7th, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Not much going on. I sent my BFF some templates for budgeting, at her request, but I haven't heard back from her. Hope she gets on board. She is good with her money overall, but she hasn't been tracking, and now that she is retired she is feeling a difference.

I've been working hard to use up food in the fridge before it goes bad. I think I am still buying too much. At least, too much that is perishable. Last night I boiled some potatoes, which I will use for breakfasts and sides, and will add to some beef stew I made in the crockpot. (I won't put potatoes in the crockpot -- I've had some bad experiences.) I also made some chicken teriyaki stirfry. Those two meals alone will feed me for a while. I'll have to freeze some portions. I also have a bag of salad and some fresh veggies to use up. I may have to cook the veggies and make soup to preserve them.

I have been using myfitnesspal for several months now and I have been successfully staying under my calorie goal most days. But I haven't been tracking my weight, because I tend to get obsessive about it. Well, I finally decided to start tracking, and I'm glad I did. I'm starting to see little losses and it's encouraging.
