NEO in the Nick of Time

Saturday, October 10, 2020

For Week 2 of the Fall 5% Challenge, the Healthy Habits rewarded are NEO (No Eating Out) and Healthy Snack. Having just bought a bag of small Gala apples, I have a lock on the Healthy Snack.

However, this morning I debated going to Chick-Fil-A to earn points to maintain my "Silver" status. (I originally earned "Silver" status when I routinely took my granddaughter after pre-school so she could play in the funhouse [and I wouldn't have to chase her around the house], to give her mother some peace and quiet to recover from surgery.) Of course, with COVID restrictions in place, there is no funhouse available at this time, and my step-daughter has fully recovered from her surgery. Also, the granddaughter now attends first grade all day in a private school that thankfully ensures social distancing. (Luckily for us, it appears that Harford County is primarily farms and a bedroom community for Metro Baltimore, so few people from outside the county have any desire to visit - hence, this county has always had a low incidence rate of COVID compared to the other big counties in this state.)

Fortunately, I am not a morning person, so I missed Chick-Fil-A's breakfast window. I weighed in for Week 1, and glanced at the Week 2 Healthy Habits. WHOA! emoticon

NEO, just when I needed a reminder emoticon the most! Yes, emoticon I have spring mix, hard-boiled eggs, and homemade vinaigrette for lunch! I have chicken and Asian steamed vegetables for dinner. DH is hunting, so he won't be around to urge for something more caloric. emoticon

That's what I like about the 5% Challenge, the focus on Healthy Habits!
