It all started in May. Memorial day, to be exact.
That’s when we started our kitchen remodel. That remodel lasted until July. That’s five weeks of not having a sink. Or a stove. Or an oven. That meant 5 weeks of eating out.
(Let’s forget the fact that we have a great grill and refrigerator, and could thus have had plenty of fresh & delicious meals.)
Of course, I think I may have really wanted, deep down, to eat out every night. Let’s be honest, take-out is delicious! But it’s also very dangerous. And, if you’re not careful can be fatty and salty and Calorie-laden.
And it can be expensive.
Unfortunately, in those five weeks a habit formed. For five weeks, I tumbled down the hill of healthy eating that I had climbed. I picked up speed and haven’t been able to start making my way back up that hill.
It’s so easy to give in to the temptation.
Even if I grab a healthy option like Subway, it still costs me 600+ Calories and $5. I could easily eat for less. And eating at home tastes so good. So why don’t I do it?
The fact is that our kitchen is fully functioning, and has been for almost 8 months. I’m frustrated that I haven’t been able to right the ship. But I will.
I guess my confession really is that I’m lazy and I love food.
