March recap

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Well today is the last day of my " no eating out" for the month of March. In the beginning as with any challenge it was a little rough. It seemed like all I wanted to do was eat out since I told myself no to fast food this month. Then I sat and thought about it. The times I wanted to eat out really wasn't that often. It just seemed that way because I was making a decision to hold off and I was more aware of what I was doing. I'm glad I did this challenge because it helped me with self control and self discipline. I had to work on the part of me that feels the urgency to eat out. Like if I wake up in the morning all the fast food places will be gone kind of thing. So as you know on day 31 they're still here.

    Way to go on getting yourself a little closer to where you want to be. See you on the team.

    I did not have trouble with fast food and giving it up. If I am going to eat out, I pick a real restaurant with a choice of food, etc. and it's just nicer, tastes better, etc. Unfortunately, often those restaurants are bars/pubs so I end up drinking a beer or two too many. . . :-)

    I do plan to eat out sometimes but not a lot. Like yesterday we has Subway. I didn't even want to go to McDonalds, Taco Bell/KFC ,Sonic or What A Burger. I want to keep those kind of places to the bare minimum ( like a last resort).

    Isn't it funny what your mind tries to convince you of?

Congratulations on achieving your goal! I

I'm curious if you're planning to continue not eating fast food?

    OH, I only WISH they were all gone!

I don't eat out very much at all. I absolutely cannot and lose weight. The only times I do is when I'm traveling, and it's ALWAYS a moderate breakfast at the hotel breakfast bar, Subway for lunch. Dinner isn't always as good~! emoticon

    Great way of thinking about it! I used to eat holiday treats because they were "rare." It took a long time to change that thinking.
