Day 16 of the last 50 pounds - no distractions!

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

I allow myself to get easily distracted from my goal. Yesterday I felt focused and committed and I did great.

So I'm going to ignore my friends who only want to go out to dinner, I'm going to avoid functions with buffets of food (for now, because I know my weaknesses and I'm going to protect myself from possible downfalls), and I leave my cash at home when I go to work because vending machines are too tempting.

Sometimes you just have to outsmart yourself! If I can just eat clean for a few weeks, I know I'll be right back on track. So no distractions!!

    I've been trying to take my daughter for walks at night when I get home from work. I always used to grab a few dollars "in case she needed something" which translated into "in case the ice cream truck is at the park" but now I only take my keys. It still feels strange but I know there's absolutely nothing I need that I can't walk back home for. I try to do that for that vending machines too...You are doing such a great job! Look how much of this journey is mental!!! And you're tackling all the demons the right way.

    Great plan! Why put yourself in that position? It's too hard and you might even find an unexpected benefit - more money! :)

    Great plan. The no-change-at-work is a trick I used to use too, it did wonders! You've got this!

    I know exactly what you mean about vending thing was the fast food places along the way to l learned to leave the debit card at home because if there is no money available I cant go....good luck on the last will lose it in no time.
