Back at it - One meal at a time

I am on week two of really trying to get back at my healthy lifestyle. I have not started exercising yet though. I am not comfortable going back to the gym at all. And I cannot wear a mask while exercising (I call it like it is, I'm overweight and out of shape. Exercising for me means I'm huffing and puffing and my face is the first thing to get red and hot. Wearing a mask while doing that sounds like a death wish to me...FYI- disclaimer- I wear one every time I go out in public though) I fear I would suffocate, and let's not even discuss my issue with germs in a gym where everyone is sweating and huffing and puffing.

Eating in 2020 - in other words, the Pandemic Diet?

I don't know about you, but in this house, we got real comfortable eating junk again. Before this virus crashed all of our lives, I was refusing to bring boxed, frozen, and preservative packed foods into our house.
But, then the virus reigned havoc down on the grocery aisles.
Typical things I was so used to buying were nowhere to be found. And even now, have you noticed how everything is so much more expensive then it was last year? I can spend $100 and have no idea what I really bought, and still only have 1 or 2 dinners out of all that food.
And even Sam's Club. I always counted on them for chicken and ground meat. Over the past few months it's been a guessing game on if they will even have any. (and the last time we bought their chicken it was really gross. It was tough and chewy no matter how you cooked it - ew)

Are you able to find the things you want from the grocery stores? Has your eating habits changed?
