Need to cut back on spending

February 7th, 2010 at 02:59 pm

I'm spending on breakfast and lunch again at work. It's so easy to slip back to old habits, and it is just sucking up my money like a vacuum.
I have to return my focus to being more prepared with my meals. I can't afford this much longer

Stop buying the bad stuff

Cutting out the bad stuff will be really hard unless DH is on board. If he buys it, I eat it ... cheesies & ice cream.
He says he has noticed that I am eating healthier, but I know that if the bad stuff is around, my willpower is nil.

I'm not blaming him, but the change needs to be a team effort.

It will do him good too as he has a spare tire, which I don't think comes from eating too many apples and bananas.

I was sorely tempted this evening by some fudgy chocolate ice-cream that DH had bought for me last week thinking he was doing a good thing.
I ate a banana instead.
I wish I had the willpower to make substitution work everytime.
Part of me feels guilty because I know the ice-cream is not going to get eaten and will just spoil and be a waste of money. Is that a good enough reason to eat it?

Monday' plan

May 11th, 2009 at 10:50 am

- start working on a workday lunch planner > things i can realistically make and take to work for lunch. Hopefully, writing it down will make me follow that plan.
- eat healthy breakfast again.
- have only fruits as snacks between meals.
- eat meals on time so that I feel full and am not tempted by junk food.
- do 20 minutes of stairclimbing exercise

Today's plan

May 9th, 2009 at 01:31 pm

- Breakfast today will be Soy milk, a cinnamon raisin bagel with Becel, cheddar cheese, and fresh strawberries.
- I will make a card and a gift for my daughter for Mother's Day, "from" her dolls who she calls her children.
- I will go to buy a few beautiful, long-lasting flowers for my mom for Mother's Day.
- We are celebrating Mother's Day today because I will be in class all day tomorrow.
