Money I Spent: $61.50 on groceries ($51 Smiths and $10.50 Sprouts). Still need to get dog food but will go to WM during the week for that.

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  Wanted Starbucks; didn’t get any.

Use It Up Challenge:  Nothing really?

Sugar I Ate:  A few bites of Sabrina’s mug cake

Sugar I Avoided: Avoided a sugary Starbucks drink and any other treats during the day.

Thoughts: Pretty happy with the grocery bill. Need to spend a couple of solid days listing on eBay. Didn’t quite happen like I planned this weekend though I did get about 12 things listed.

  1. Money I Spent: $50 for Burger Boy lunch after the La Luz Trail Run. Grammy and Pagee have been so wonderful about watching Sabrina this summer, including coming over at 5:00 am so Beth could take me to the run, I wanted to buy them lunch.

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made: I was too tired to spend any money for the rest of the day.

    Use It Up Challenge:Nothing I can think of.

    Sugar I Ate: I didn’t go as crazy as I wanted to go after the La Luz. It helped that we didn’t have a lot of sugar around the house. I don’t think I had any sugary snacks, aside from the post-race Gatorade. Oh, and I had some coffee with sugar before the race.

    Sugar I Avoided: I didn’t break into the package of Oreos hiding in the cabinet.

    Thoughts: I didn’t have a great La Luz time because I didn’t eat properly. I ran my best time in 2016 when I ate a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal before the race. I didn’t eat at all this year and it didn’t go well. Remember to get up earlier and eat breakfast next year.


  2. Money I Spent: $0 Thanks to neighbors buying lunch and some leftovers for supper.

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:

    Use It Up Challenge : Heated up some posole from freezer, was kind of mushy but ok on flavor.

    Sugar I Ate: 4 peppermints

    Sugar I Avoided: all the rest, pretty good for me!!

    Thoughts: Was a nice day……….
