First, we got engaged!

Then we got hitched!

and Now...life is back to normal!

Which brings me to my next "project"--my 30 Day Challenge. What is this challenge you ask? I'm going to go 30 days without eating one bite of anything that is made in a restaurant. That's right folks, I'm not eating out for 30 days! Why, you ask? I have three reasons. First, I have blown every single diet I have been on in the last 5 years because we eat out too much, particularly on the weekends. Second, I associate food and socialization entirely too closely. I need to learn to have fun and do things that don't center around food. Last, I think this will be a great way to save some money and create/try a few new recipes! I'm going to blog about this challenge as often as possible and give you the recipes, or links to recipes, that I make each day for dinner. Additionally, I'll tell you how hard, or easy this is, as well as how much weight I lose (assuming I lose some weight.) Today, I started my challenge with a trip to the grocery store and made my first new recipe.
This is where the magic happens!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's adventure...we'll see if this lasts. You know I am the queen of the "10 Minute Diet."
