three days in

It is now 3 days into Lent and I have successfully gone the whole 3 days without buying any food or crap.  I did purchase bus tokens to go to my chiropractor appointment and to work.

I have managed to resist consuming the following things over the course of the past few days:
  • Lo mein (aka chow mein) from my favorite lunch cart ($3 saved)
  • Auntie Anne's pretzel stix+cheese sauce (~$4 saved)
  • Vending machine crap ($1 saved)
  • Starbucks passion iced tea ($3 saved)
  • Today's lunch (~$7 saved)
On Valentine's day, I went to Chipotle with friends (something that had been planned before I had made my mind up about doing this) but my friend didn't want me to break Lent and she helped me!

I have also been tempted with other things such as shopping at Marshall's but I have resisted.  I almost met disaster at lunch today when I realized that I forgot to prepare lunch to take to work with me, but I was saved by the emergency soup cans that I keep in my desk drawer.  Tonight, I had a nice homemade dinner of steak, green beans, and potatoes.

37 more days to go............

  1. I'm proud of you. And it always blows my mind that those damn pretzels cost so much.
