Don’t carry cash.
No, really, that’s the simple trick. For me, at least. See, although I’m off to a strong start with getting back to my exercising, I just noticed that I haven’t hit my calorie budget for the first three days of this week. Mostly because I haven’t been as dedicated to packing my meals as I should have been, which translates into eating out. And that also allows for thoughtless snacking, because I’ve got the ability to make purchases.
So I put an end to that. I made sure to pack my breakfast and lunch today, and left the cash at home. My theory is that, if I can’t buy a snack, I can’t eat a snack. And it seems pretty fool-proof to me. Which is what I need, right at this minute.
