On Thursday…

Written Thursday night after work and never posted so I figured I would post it today 🙂

My plan this morning to make rice and veggies with soy sauce sounded less than appealing this evening on the way home.  I was tempted….

The thought of coming home and having to cook even something as simple as rice and veggies sounded like too much plus I didn’t want rice and veggies I wanted….something else, something easy, something probably not good for me.

As I drove past Arbys, Applebees, Panera, and an assortment of other restaurants I reminded myself of a simple fact:

You can’t afford to eat out!!!  

I had to yell at myself.  If I turned down $4 lunch today in favor of bringing my own lunch I couldn’t turn around and spend $10 on dinner.  That would make no sense.  Plus I knew I wanted to save my money for my weekend plans.

I overcame my moment of weakness and drove straight home.  Once home I remembered I took a container of lentil soup out of the freezer so I could have that for dinner.  Easy, healthy, and free!

    Good for you in not giving into the temptation! It is so tempting to go the easy route when we are tired and hungry. Good for you!
