I ate some calories today that I shouldn't have--I bought an iced mocha for my mom, although I kind of knew she wouldn't be upset if I didn't and I definitely knew she wouldn't drink all of it, and of course I ended up drinking some of it. Then I bought some pepperoni pretzel nuggets when we went to get pretzels for my dad.
On both times, I ate some of it but not all of it. Tossing the mocha was painful because I was wasting food and money. Why did I buy it? Same for the pepperoni pretzels--did I really need to buy it, especially when I ate only 3 (although my mom was happy to eat half of it, so it wasn't a total waste).
Maybe before I buy food I need to think about the money I'd waste if I didn't eat it, because I seem to only think about that AFTER I've eaten some and am about to throw the rest away. It is very frustrating to me to 1) not have the self-control to not buy something I really shouldn't eat, and 2) waste money by buying something I won't finish. WHY AM I LIKE THIS????
I suppose the experience was good to make me think, in future, before I buy something. Hopefully I'll remember the next time I'm out with my parents.
