  • NKADDSNAP Challenge Day Six & Seven:

    Day Six/Seven: This is my last blog post about the NKADDSNAP Challenge. My thanks to those of you who have read any of my posts this week. I’ll be glad to go back to my normal eating routine on monday. I’m most looking forward to a nice big cup of black coffee come monday morning.…

  • NKADDSNAP Challenge Day Five

    Today is my last day of the SNAP Challenge where I’ll be at work. Current stock suggests I’ll be eating small amounts of chicken and the rest of my eggs over the weekend with potatoes, soup, and beans. I did go running last night but forgot to grab my GPS watch, therefore those calories are…

  • NKADDSNAP Challenge Day Four:

    Today I remember my yogurt and my granola bar, but I won’t be eating PB&J for lunch. Instead, I took the box of brown rice and the remaining chicken broth and cooked it all.

Instead I’ve got…

The realization quickly hit me that I need to pack my peanut butter and jelly sandwich and organize my breakfast. I’m still bitter about having to eat non-fat yogurt all week. But…

    1:30pm 1/12/2014: I just got back from my last run before the snap challenge that starts tomorrow. Unlike the SNAP recipients that depend on these benefits, I will be eating a big supper tonight. I’m planning to go to Aldi’s, where my family shopped back when we were a family of four with a single…
