Have I mentioned that I do not like losing?
That I have a competitive side?
If you challenge me, it is difficult for me not to accept. Cliffdog knows this. Which is why I think she presented the challenge. Cliffdog challenged me to a entire month of not eating out at restaurants. She was willing to give me four “cheat” days within that month, and a carve out for alcohol.
The purpose: Shed more light on my monthly food costs.
A month of no restaurants?!
I would fail. I literally could not do it. I will not take on a challenge I know I will lose.
But I will agree to two weeks. Two weeks of no restaurants. This is still a challenge for me, as I eat lunch out at least twice a week, and multiple dinners out.
And again, Cliffdog graciously is giving me carve outs. 1) I am allowed to eat out with my aunt who will be in town 2) If it happens to be a date
The challenge starts today. Heres to the menu planning! Wish me luck 🙂
Have you ever given up restaurants for a period of time?
