Food shopping has been really low, we were stocked up, and had Christmas treats left over, we always planed to stay at home throughout January, sitting out the virus again, we both have had our boosters, but staying safe.
We spent our saving allowance plus a bit more, we had to get a new mattress which was twice the cost we thought we would pay, ours is on its last legs, and a second hand outside table and chairs, which was a bargain we did not want to miss, we will sell our table and 2 chairs, keeping the bench. Not the financial start we wanted, we are focusing on saving each month of the rest of the year.
I'm happy with my weight on Jan 1st, I record my weight the 1st day of every year, I am about the same as I was back in 2014, in between my weight has yoyoed, 2020 was my heaviest recorded weight. We are walking and have cut back on portion sizes, we still have loads of Christmas food here, I always put on a couple of pounds in January.
