We are starting week 3 of our challenge of not eating at restaurants except for business/giftcards. Here is our official total:
Number of Days on the Challenge: 14
Number of times we have eaten at restaurants with a gift card: 3 (two times at Starbucks with my son Justen for our weekly date, one time with Roger at Outback for his birthday).
Number of Cheats since the Challenge started: 1 (I was doing announcements at church today and while I got a free coffee from the café and brought my own banana from home, I forgot to bring a bottle of water from home.)
Amount of personal finances spent on eating out since the challenge started: $1
Biggest realization since the challenge started: Bottled water at church is expensive.
Amount of weight lost by me and Roger since eating at home: 7 pounds
Thing I have missed the most since starting the challenge: Starbucks and drive thru Diet Cokes.
Best new recipe: Portobello Pizzas. (Much like the recipe that Roger published last week, but with sausage and pepperoni – yummy.)
She and her husband Roger are the parents of four young adults in San Jose, CA. When she’s not dating her husband or hanging out with her puggle Jake, Kathi is speaking at retreats, conferences and women’s events across the US.
