The old habits die hard.
Monday, June 17, 2013
So I feel off the SP wagon. But, it's okay. I picked myself back up again. I've settled into my life here in Seattle. But, what that really means is that I let old habits of going out to eat spending $$ and calories on thing I don't really want and aren't good for me. One of my biggest downfalls is going out to eat. I love it! The bad part is, I can't convince myself to make the healthy choice. It's easier for me to not go out and stay at home rather then be tempted and fail.
One of the best things I did for myself, when I first moved was to set a strict budget for myself. Honestly, that's a really big motivator for me. Trying not to spend money I don't have. The thing is going out is how people socialize. Even if I participate in an activity with them, after we're done people want to go out and eat together. Either that, or they wonder if, "you want to grab a bite before you go". I want to hang out with people. I don't want to be a recluse, but I don't want to spend the money or really eat the food. But, I want to be with people.
Ugghhh what do I do?!?! This has always been my biggest problem. Falling into temptations trap, and not being able to stop the slippery slope that got me to a 100 lbs over weight. I need to come up with coping mechanisms. But, I don't know how.
