Why is this such a difficult number for me. It appears to me to be a lot. At this moment I wished i had one thousand five hundred and fifty dollars a day just to play with. I could spend it all in one day, even donate most of it. One thousand five hundred and fifty steps during the day on days that I am sick appears to be a blessing. One thousand, five hundred and fifty pairs of shoes would be to way to many shoes for me - i would have to give at least half away. One thousand five hundred and fifty minutes of sleep - hey I would be sleeping all day and one hour into the next day-seems like a little too much sleep even for me.
So you look at a number like one thousand five hundred and fifty and most people, when you break it down on a daily basis, would say that is a lot. But for me it's not enough. That's the total amount of calories I'm supposed to have in one day. When I start the day it appears to be a lot, but as the day goes along, it seems like nothing at all (especially at the end of the day).
WELL, what this means is I need to rethink the number one thousand five hundred and fifty. Maybe I just need to treat it like money. Money that is in my budget, BUT it I go over it my account is overdrawn. Even like penny's (interesting.) Lets see if that works the next time I'm looking at that piece of chocolate cake (How many penny's would that take),
