Clean Eating Weeks 2 and 3

So weeks 2 and 3 of P and I’s 6 week clean eating challenge have come and gone.  We are both alive AND I am here to tell you it is not the end of the world if you cut alcohol, sweets and other junk out of your diet.  Boy, it sure seems like the end of the world though. Ugh.

As far as the scale goes, I have lost 6 pounds and P has lost…

18 pounds!!!

shocked

God I hate men!  Why is it so easy for them to lose weight?  Why?!?!

Let me just table my anger about the fact that life isn’t fair and focus on the positive changes I have noticed over the first few weeks.

  • Energy rising.  Like a phoenix from the ashes, I feel like a new lady when it comes to life.  Cooking more, cleaning more, and being nice to my husband…weird.  I feel like a 1950s housewife.  Just one that drops more F bombs.
  • Maybe she’s born with it.  tumblr_mf28lgwIkP1rlyreko1_500My skin feels better and looks better (thanks for noticing Channing). For the first time in I don’t know how long, I didn’t break out into my normal acne ridden face when Aunt Flo came to visit…weird.
  • Tapping into my genius.  If you read this blog even on a semi-regular basis, you know that I am a gal who LOVES mindless TV (i.e., Real Housewives of Insert Any City Here).  Over the last few weeks though, I have recently started watching documentaries and…wait for it…science shows…weird AND WTF!!watch-out-we-got-a-badass-over-here-meme

Yes, P misses his beer and I miss wine and chocolate and pizza and wine (had to list it twice since I miss it so much), but we feel good.  Is this what being sober feels like?

Here is hoping the next 3 weeks run as smooth as my baby soft skin!

Thanks for reading, and have a cocktail for me tonight!

I NEED YOU (and may or may not steal your ideas)

Yes…you!!  I want to start a new category to my blog about date nights for 2 under $30.00.  My great friend Jossette (jossetteholland) suggested I make it $50.00, but that would be too easy.  This blog is about saving money and going that extra mile in getting out of debt a little faster so let’s make it a tad more challenging with dates for 2 for $30.00.  It can be a date night with your mom, dad, friend, spouse, lover, or cat.  Whatever suits your fancy…or in the case of a date night with your cat: Fancy Feast (because Fancy Feast is a brand of cat food…get it…nevermind).  I have a few ideas, but the more brains that storm the better!  I will of course give credit where credit is due and if I choose your idea it will be blogged about and you and your amazeballs idea will be mentioned (if you also blog, I will have to give your blog a shout out as well…unless I don’t like your blog, then shout out will be revoked).  Extra credit if you come up with specific ideas in the good ole U.S.A (and bonus points if it is in the Eastern Washington/North Idaho area where this blogger may or may not be from).

Comment below with your ideas and input, e-mail me @ thefrugoal@gmail.com, tweet me @frugoal, or if you are reading this on my facebook leave a comment for me (pretty please with bacon on top…because quite frankly sugar and sprinkles are overrated)!

Also I just wanted to thank everyone who takes time out of their busy lives to read this blog!  I LOVE hearing from all of my family, friends and fellow folks who reside in this wordpress blogosphere!  People are not only reading the blog, but actually liking it (which is so fantabulous) and constantly coming up to me in person or leaving comments on this blog about their own experiences with debt and how they got out of it or are in the process of trying to get out of it (like me).  Thanks a million!  I also have been nominated for 3 blog awards, which I will write about in a later post, so again…thank you all!!!
