So. It is said that it takes 21 grueling days to create a new habit. Well it just so happens that there are a couple new habits I want to create.
- Eating Healthy
- Saving for a house
There are more but I think this is a good start.
So ways I’m getting started:
- Eating Healthy…I’m doing more of my own cooking and trying to take my lunch to work with me.
- Writing…I not going to count yesterday so today will be day 1 for making a post of some kind.
- Saving for a house…I have a plan to have almost enough for a down payment in the bank by July….enough to start looking anyway with a hopeful move in date of this time next year.
- Exercising…? I know how to start…I want to start…I just haven’t found the motivation yet lol
I guess that 3 out of 4 is a pretty good start. Right? Right? Maybe not but it is a start.
Any recommendations for any of the above are welcome as long as you’re not trying to sell me something or trying to get me to sell something for you. My crazy is enough for me right now 🙂
Love to all
Ok. So I’ve been living on the road for about a year and a half. Truth is that I both love and hate it. I’m loving the work I’m doing! I love learning my new trade! I love the guys that I work with and new friends that I’ve made! So now for the things that I don’t like – because you have to focus on the positives first right? I hate missing my family! I hate eating out every night (Yes I’m working on fixing this one)! I hate leaving home on Sunday night and not getting home till Friday night!
So not much I can do about 2 out of 3 of my hates but the whole eating out every night thing has got to stop! For 2 reasons. 1 it’s expensive! and 2 it’s totally dragging me down!
So what have I done to fix this ‘issue’ you ask? I’ve started amassing a small mobile kitchen for myself: hot plate, electric fry pan, a dinner place setting (plate and bowl), a few storage bowls, a small coffee pot. The bigger problem that I’m having is learning how to cook for just one person! You wouldn’t think this would be so hard but holy smokes! Everything and I mean EVERYTHING is created to feed as army! 😲😲😲😲😲 At least it seems that way. 😂😂 You want Rotisserie chicken – you know the one that comes hot from the store? You are going to get real tired of chicken over the next few days….and don’t forget some kind of side. Which is designed for a family of 4!
So yes I went to the grocery store looking some kind of protein… and left with a whole chicken!
So I wrote this about a year ago meaning to come back and proof read it and totally forgot about it lol. But it still holds true. While I have figured out a few tricks for cooking for 1 the majority of food in the store is designed for family eating. So while I can change my protein I’m most likely eating the same sides for 2 or 4 days. Although you’d probably be amazed what you can cook in an electric fry pan 🤣🤣🤣
