French Fry Free February
I have decided that I need yet another challenge. This one is for my health and will go along with goal #1 to get back in shape, sort of. My challenge to myself for this month is to go an entire month, that’s 29 days this month, without french fries. Considering that I have gotten into a not-so-good habit of running over to the local fast food place a couple of times a week, this may be difficult. Or maybe not. I didn’t say I couldn’t eat out, just no french fries. So, on Monday I went to Subway and got a mini sub with ham and swiss, chips a drink and a cookie. (I know the cookie isn’t all that healthy but it was oatmeal raisin!) Then, I ate leftovers on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and today I went and got a grilled chicken sandwhich and baked potato from Wendy’s. It was a little farther of a drive and I had to fight some traffic, but it was worth it to be able to have a french fry free lunch. Now, I am one of those people who has always eaten what she wanted and not care too much about the result. So whenever I have tried to change my habits, it makes me focus on how much I want the thing I tried to give up. This way, I feel like I can still splurge on going out for lunch (I have to get out of my white, windowless office sometimes) but do it without getting fatty french fries. Yeah for me! Anyone want to join me in the French Fry Free February challenge? I wish I had some time to create a really cute badge to put on everyone’s blog, but I don’t. Sorry. If anyone wants to create one to share, go right ahead! Now, I am off to go check the Sew Mama Sew blog really quick to see if they have any new projects posted and then it’s back to work! Until next time.
Happy Stitches to You,
