I did not do very well for the first week. I did have 4 no spends but the other three days were expensive. We spent $172.65 on groceries. $50 of that was Y buying food for his lunches. He brings leftovers some days but prefers to buy frozen convenience food and leave it at work. To be honest, I'm thinking he's not going to change this. Marriage is about compromise, right?
We spent $64.52 on everything else. $26 was for the baby's birth certificate. I need it to start him in daycare. I consider this a necessity. The remaining money is actually for eating out. We forgot that we told Lil Punk that we could eat at McDonalds on New Years Day. She didn't forget. We also ate out another time at Subway while we were waiting for my car to be done. It wasn't good planning on my part. I had two screaming kids and we were all starving.
I need to buy some groceries today but will likely wait until Y gets home to go out. It's still cold here and I hate taking the baby out. I have been eating nonstop. I'm still losing about 1-2 pounds a week which is where I want to be but I'm starving. I am eating 4 smaller meals a day plus several healthy snacks.
The reason I think I've been so hungry is that the baby seems to just suck it all out of me. I weighed him last night and he weighs 17 pounds. He will be 2 months next week. Lil Punk was a fat baby also but only weighed 15 pounds at 2 months. She slimmed down between 9 months to a year. I'm sure this baby will do the same when he starts crawling and walking.
In good news, after today we are supposed to have 8 days with the temperature above 0. Woohoo!!
How was your week?
