Another Day, Another Dollar Spent

Friday, March 29, 2013

Story of my life, haha. A morning trip to the grocery store has left me with just enough gas money to get to my next paycheck. Eating healthy is pretty darn expensive. Haha it doesn't help that I'm currently addicted and obsessed with sushi.

I've gotten out of the habit of tracking my calories on Spark's tracker, and I'm going to do my best to get back on track starting today (even though I splurged on a whole bag of popped chips, I'm still on track to stay under 1300 calories today). Not only am I hoping this will help me stay on track in terms of input, but also that I will be able to stretch out my modest stash of groceries as long as possible. I've also been falling short on water consumption the past several days, as well, and no doubt that's one of the major reasons I have been feeling so bleh. It seems that the secret to water success is making sure I have a 1 liter drinking bottle with me throughout the day, and that I only have to refill it once to get the 8 cups per day. If I don't have a bottle or something smaller (like a 20 oz one), I never seem to make it.

I haven't weighed myself in about a week, since I reach and seemingly kept my all-time low of 188.6. In the days following that last weigh-in, I've gone "off menu" and done a lot of eating out without tracking the calories - so obviously I'm afraid of weighing in right now. Maybe I'll feel more confident after a few days of repentant eating.

Other than that there's nothing else to talk about really, haha. I've got five days of work ahead of me and I still haven't gotten rid of my case of the Mondays. I'm a bit behind on my dress for the Renaissance faire next month, but I'm confident I can get it done in time. Haha other than that I've been having a serious craving for Chinese take-out, maybe even a night in at home and a movie marathon to enjoy it. Haha why does my weekend have to be so far away?

Well, it's about time to head into work, so that's that. I hope everyone out there is having a fabulous Friday!

    You and your sushi.. lol!

    Please take some in progress photos of your garb. I'd love to see the fabrics, etc!

    I've noticed that you seem to be afraid of the scale quite often. Why? :O It's just a number. Yeah, it totally blows goat chunks when the number is up, but it's not the end of the world. I'm in the daily weigh-in club, though. I like to see how things change day to day and how it's directly related to my day before. Even when I know it's going to be up, though, I'm not afraid to look at the number, so I don't quite relate. I'm not criticizing, but I'd like to try to understand :D And maybe convince you not to fear the scale!

    I too have not tracked my food in a while. I haven't been eating like I should, but then when I weighed in this morning I had lost a lb. Shocked the hell outta me. LOL Hope you have a good day at work and that your weekend gets here quick!!
