Hi Hannah and Renaelisa, welcome! I hope you keep blogging and we can give each other support. I too have tried several diets and never stuck with it. I like this website because it isnt a diet.
Suggestions for cheap healthy food
oatmeal for breakfast - only 160 cal and you get 10 pks for about $2.50 (sometimes less, i shop sales or walmart no name brand)
baked potato- only 110 cal and a lot of times you can get a 10lb bag for .99 when on sale
chicken breasts- i buy frozen 3lb bag for about $7 at walmart
salads are fairly cheap if you make your own, buy a head of lettuce for under $1 and you can make probably 4 salads out of it if you are making them for just one.
I need to jump back on the exercise bandwagon tonight after my kids go to bed. What is everyone else doing for exercise?
