Money I Spent: $0

Money I Avoided Spending: No stores and no shopping online!

Extra Money I Found or Made: eBay: sold a Tina Turner coffee cup for $19.

Use-it-Up: Cut into a tube of toothpaste last night to dig out its innards. I think I can make it last 2 more days.

Don’t Go Into a Store: Success! Streak day 5.

Exercise Every Day: Fail! I blame the 6″ of snow on the ground. I did not want to go outside.

Work Outside Every Day: Fail! See above. Just couldn’t do it.

Thoughts: Stay at Home day 33. Another restless day, though this time it was the fault of the snowstorm. We all wanted to go do things outside, but couldn’t. The weather is supposed to slowly improve over the next few days and be up to 70 again in a week. I bet all our snow will be melted in 2 days or less. So… no big deal!

I have been getting tired of our food choices, which is probably 50% to blame on quarantine and 50% on my keto diet. So most days I have a little “cheat” here and there which really isn’t doing me any favors. I also think that even though they are keto-friendly, I am having way too much cheese and way too many peanuts. So my current diet challenge is strict keto Tues – Fri this week, April 14 – 17 and to try “drinks before snacks,” meaning instead of grabbing a snack I’ll first have a bottle of water or a hot tea, etc. I think I need to be a little more creative next time I go to the grocery store, and see if I can bring home some keto-friendly, budget-friendly snacks and meals to keep us from getting so bored.
