A real challenge

So I have a lot of goals... 101 to be exact. One of them is to not eat out for an entire month. My jaw about hit the floor when I actually typed that out as one of my goals- I couldn't believe I was actually saying that at some point I would attempt something so absurd. Well, thank God for good friends because I honestly don't know when I would have ever been inspired to complete this goal of mine had it not been for Dawn... who tried not eating out for a week and was very successful- so successful that she decided she wanted to try a whole month too. So we decided we'd do this together.

The rules are simple... no eating out. This includes side trips to Jamba Juice, Starbucks, a muffin at the grocery store (I do this a lot with Deacon), ice cream from Big Spoon (oh my gosh a whole month???!!!), etc...

I'm not going to lie - I'm a bit nervous about doing this for an entire month. Thankfully February is a short month, LOL. I've planned out all our meals for the month and am making sure I'm well prepared. The goal is to save money this month so I'm also being very aware of buying unnecessary items at the store.

The challenge starts on Sunday and runs through February!
