Here's an update on my two challenges for this month:
- No spend challenge. I thought this was going to be blown out of the water on day one because my friends that just moved here called me and wanted to meet up. Of course much of our meeting up revolves around food--what else--so we met at a local taco shop and while I offered to pay (out of habit, before I even remembered the challenge), my friend's husband insisted on paying. So day one was a success--nothing spent today.
- Paleo challenge. I actually started this challenge yesterday. Since I was home all day yesterday cleaning, it was easy to eat all paleo which I did. Then I woke up with a pounding headache this morning (I'm thinking it was because of the lack of caffeine, sugar and carbs that weren't a part of my diet yesterday...bummer). All was well in paleo-land until I met with my friends (above) and I had two carne asada tacos (in corn tortillas, even though corn is a vegetable, it counts as a grain for the purposes of paleo) so this was a slight hiccough in the plan but I don't feel like it was a critical lapse so I stuck with paleo food for the rest of the day and will move onward and upward tomorrow.
