After a few days of overeating but not thinking too much of it because I'm not over eating by that much I realized I have to get serious about staying in my calorie range. SP had yet another article about rewards, and I happened to have a gardening catalogue that I was waiting to browse. I decided that I can have $25 for each day that I stay in my calorie range to spend on gardening supplies.
Well, yesterday was the first day. I ate my healthy food, then we were going next door to play games. I budgeted for vodka and soda, and then I knew I had hardly any room left. After drinking and playing games for a couple hours, I was feeling tired and hungry, and that's when our hosts put out snacks. It was soooo hard, but I managed to stay away from all but the veggies and I stayed in my range. I was very proud of myself and I think this reward system just might work. My supersweet husband is going to add $5 every day to support me.
Today was easier because we slept in so sort of missed a meal, and I am really looking forward to ordering some expensive plants!
