Challenge – Day 5

I added “Crunchy Bugs on A Log” - celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins/granola to dinner tonight. Barbara and I liked it, Andrew said it is different. Note to self, to increase time spent during morning workout to increase my caloric burn.

I am happy to report that I’ve saved $3 by bring my own coffee into work and not supporting Starbucks. While I do like the crew at "my" Starbucks, I read that I could save over $350 dollars annually if I brought my coffee from home rather than at Starbucks. Like my grandmother said, “Dimes roll up into dollars.”

Did you know that it will take you 41 years to pay off a $2,500 balance on a credit card with 19% interest if you make only the minimum monthly payments. At the end of that 41 year period you will have paid the credit card company $10,598 on top of the $2,500.

½ cup of coffee
1 bottle of water
Lunch: bowl of tomato basil soup w/two rolls and glass of ice water
Dinner: cold chicken salad w/low fat French dressing and unsweetened ice tea.
