Thin Post : Food Rollercoaster

I haven’t been doing very good with food lately.

In fact, I’ve specifically been avoiding scales because I’m worried about the overall effects that it might be having on my progress. I know that even more so than exercising, it’s really important for me to keep my diet in check because nobody ever gained weight from a lack of exercise, but overeating? Yup…

I think right now it’s been both a combination of money and time. Money-wise, our budget has been a little tight lately, so as much as it doesn’t make a lick of sense, I’ve been eating out a little more instead of buying actual groceries to make food for lunch and dinner. Isn’t it weird how that works? I can buy enough food to make an entire week of sandwiches for the cost of eating out once, and yet somehow it still seems cheaper to spend $8 a day than $100+ all at once!

As for time, I know I’ve mentioned several times at this point that now through Christmas is kind of a crunch time for me creatively as I try to wrap up important projects before the new year, so it’s also hard sometimes just to find the time to spend in the kitchen grilling chicken breasts or whatever when I could be spending that time writing. Of course, it’s not like I’ve completely freed myself of other distractions (i.e the Internet!), so there are always other places that can give if I’d just try…

I just need to find some motivation here as I push through the remainder of the year because as much as I’d really love to lose a little more weight before I travel home for Christmas, what I really don’t want to happen is for me to end up slipping and gaining back the 25 pounds of progress that I’ve already made! 🙁
