A day of resisting temptations...

August 6th, 2010 at 03:34 pm

First I resisted the strong urge to go to BK this morning. Then I resisted ordering pizza for dinner. And to top it all off, I resisted going to get ice cream, which has been a usual Friday night activity with my DD. I feel real good about today. I hope I can keep this momentum up.

Since I resisted all of these temptations, I have had a NSD so far. But we are probably going to go to the drive in tonight so I will have the ticket purchase. But I would rather spend my money on that than on food that I don't need!

Positive of the day:
I can resist unhealthy choices to the benefit of my health and budget.

    That is an outstanding payoff for your strength today, and I hope it leads to a lovely evening out. You can even bring healthy snacks with you to the drive-in, so you have insurance of enjoying the movie with something good and tasty! Enjoy...

    Way to go on the NSDs, today is the second day that I did not spend a thing. I too was very tempted; I wanted to go to J.C Penney's and pick up skirt I saw there last week but didn't. You should add what you would have spent to the $20 challenge; if you are participating and again, way to go Wink

    Firstable, good job today! Funny you posted this today because I was tempted to call my husband to ask him to pick up Italian food, but I decided against it. Instead I grilled chicken, hot Italian sausages and onions. I bet we saved about $15 by doing this and it was so darn tasty! Lately I'm not impressed with the quality of food in some restaurants (Chili's, Applebees, etc.) It is expensive and not so tasty.

    That's awesome! Fridays are hard for me not to eat out. Heck, all weekend long it's hard for me to not eat out. I feel like it's my reward for working two jobs during the week. I must do better.
