Day 1

So here it starts. I will give you the details of what I ate yesterday and what I did for exercise.

Breakfast: 1 packet of flavored oatmeal
~ $1.49 for a box of 8 (19cents per packet)

Lunch: Salad with cut up lunchmeat, cheese, fat free croutons, and reduced fat Raspberry Vinagerette
~$1.98 for bottle of dressing, $1.98 pkg lunchmeat, $1.48 croutons, $3.80 for 2lbs cheese,$2.99 2lbs salad.(Total is $12.23, but keep in mind this will be enough to feed me for a whole week if not longer, so it is roughly $1.75 per serving)

Snack: 2 large graham crackers
~$1.58 for entire box of graham crackers

Dinner: Enchilada Casserole with Rice
~$3.14 xtra lean ground beef, $1.79 big can enchilada sauce, $.98 can of olives, $1.98 50ct corn tortilla, $.38 Taco seasoning, $3.80 2lbs cheese, $1.23 1lb bag rice. (Grand total of $12.70, but I only used 8 of the 50 tortillas, 1 1/2 cups of cheese and 2 cups of rice so it is roughly $7.91 for a dinner for a family of 4)

As far as exercise, I didn't do any, but partly this is because I spent alot of the day packing up my house getting ready to move.

You know they say that just simple things like house cleaing is considered exercise. If you don't normally exercise start out small by doing things like walking for small periods of time, if you do it enough you will watch your stamina steadily increase.

Grand total price for the day $11.55 now this is the total of what I ate not the total of what I would have spent.

Depending on where you live prices will vary, the best places to shop to save is a Winco if you have one near you, but most importantly price check before you leave the house.

Be sure to check out the deals tab I have, whenever I have find great deals I will post them there.


  1. If you get the big round things of instant oatmeal, you can flavor them with some non-sugar sweetener. Save some $ and some calories!

  2. The enchilada casserole sounds wonderful. Can you post the recipe for this? You're recipes are great!
