Somewhere in mid-February, I totally lost sight of my goals...today I discovered I went 500 calories over my daily goal, and I thought I did well today! I did resist the vending machine twice today, though, and nothing in there is even remotely healthy or under 250 calories, so that would've made things worse. I've got too many coins floating around and there's too many vending machines on this campus! It sits in the basement and calls to me with skittles and cookies...I have determined, though, that the main two reasons for my junk food addiction are 1) habit and 2) boredom. A few of my classes have vending machines right outside the door, and today I decided to stop letting it be a habit to put my stuff away, walk out the door, and head to the machine. As weird as this might sound, I'm making new habits - like tapping a certain wall and a particular door on my way out - to try and break my old routine. And I think I'm gonna round up all my coins and put them out of sight so I won't be able to buy anything. By the time I put my sweaters away for the season, I want my better body back!
