The last 3 days have been a miserable failure. I nibbled at work. Who can resist lukewarm fries that have been sitting for like half an hour and are about to be tossed in the trash. Apparently not me! Thursday was just bad...the whole day was one big bad day. I was out of the lunch meat I had to make sandwiches for work. My last apple was bad. So I had to scramble for something to pack for lunch at work. Work was super busy. I'm not sure but I think we were missing a person. At least it felt that way. I had to stop at the store on my way home to get another loaf of light bread. The mood I was in, if I had more money to spend I would have come home with a pint of ice cream and eaten the whole thing. Instead I remembered I had a can of crescent rolls. I didn't even bother to separate them and roll them up. I threw the whole roll of dough on a pan and let it bake. While it was baking I ate a sleeve of Ritz crackers. I should just bought the d*mn ice cream.
36 Ritz crackers and a whole can of crescent rolls = 1520 calories
One pint of ice cream = 600 calories
A hundred little things just got to me and I caved. Work was crazy the past couple of days, it's been really cold and I hate winter, payday is still several days away and have less than $1 in my wallet, and it getting to be that time of the month so PMS has arrived.
My money situation gets me the most. I used make a lot more than I do now. The rent, water, gas, etc are paid and there's enough food in the kitchen. But I don't have money to just go buy something when I want it. There's still "bad" food in there. I didn't want to wait to start getting healthier. There's a million things I want from the grocery store. And it frustrates me to have to wait.
BUT even though I have fallen flat on my face I will get back up. The food in the kitchen is not exactly health food but it'll have to do for now. When payday rolls around, you better believe I'll be stocking my kitchen with fish, chicken, frozen veggies, fresh fruit, fat free yogurt, healthy cereals and snacks.
