Here’s the challenge…
DON’T EAT OUT FOR THE WHOLE WEEK!
This is NOT going to be easy, but it’s good to give yourself a challenge, and not just during Lent. Why should you try this?
1- Eating out gets expensive. Tuck away the money you save this week for a rainy day.
2-You eat A LOT more calories when you eat out than when you make a meal at home.
3-Families who sit down for meals together tend to talk more and have fewer problems.
I love to eat out, but it really should be a treat not an everyday occurance. Plan ahead, make a grocery list and resist the temptation to hit the drive through.
With that being said, I challenge you to not eat out for a week.
Are you up to the challenge? Stay home, eat some cereal and pasta, and watch a movie with some good company. It will be just as fun! Let me know how it goes.
