Lenten fun

So, okay...things on the losing end have not been so good.
The Mr and I headed up to Monterey to pick up a new car (Yea!!) and had a
weekend filled with indulgences.

Perfect timing, though...Lent started yesterday. Lent is one of my favorite yet most somber times of the year. I love the idea of reflection and cleansing. And it fits perfectly with my goal of 50 in 52!

So- here are my plans for this Lenten journey:

1- Eating. Minimize all eating out. If we must eat out, we will do cheap and healthy. Think a slim salad at Baja Fresh. The cheap is to save money and reflect on the indulgences we have taken for granted. The healthy, well, is healthy.

2- Eating. Packed healthy lunches each day. While it isn't necessarily cheap cheap, the KASHI prepared meals are my choice. They are much better and healthier (lower sodium, higher fiber, better ingredients) than the other frozen meals. They cost $3-4 per meal but they'll help me stay focused.

My plan for eating:

B- Gluten free bar and coffee (60)
S/main bfast- Plain yogurt and berries blended as a shake (330)
L- Kashi and an orange (325)
S- Either LUNA bar or Nuts (180)
D- Kashi on Tues and Wed when Mr is in class. Other days either fish or chicken with brown rice, quinoa, bulgar, or yams. (500)
S- Yoplait yummy yogurt (100)

Total calories: ~1500

More to come on Lent later...gotta get work done :)
