I’ve reached the end of my two-week no-spend challenge. Thanks for all your support!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I would like to tell you harrowing tales of treachery and battles ending in victory. The truth is, I was well-prepared, which made things easy, for the most part. Last week I told you I was feeling fierce with determination, and because I bought all the necessary groceries for the two week period, I had no reason to eat out.
I did run out of the delicious granola bars I had intended for breakfasts–because I started eating them as afternoon snacks, too. And so yesterday I arrived to work knowing I had nothing for breakfast left. I figured “what the hell? I’ve been good” and I popped into that evil sandwich shop in our building. As I stood in line I realized I didn’t really have any money allotted for eating out in the budget for this time frame. I pulled out my phone thinking, “I’ll just move some money from emergency savings to checking” and then the biggest WHAT. ARE YOU DOING. happened in my mind that I physically startled myself and I put the phone away and
ran walked out of there. How ridiculous! Haha. Instead, when I got to my floor, I popped 75c into the vending machine and got a granola bar to tie me over. I survived, and it was fine.
And that, my friends, was the worst of it. I’m back on track. Thanks for being my accountabilibuddies!
Did you spend much eating out this week? Do you have an evil temptation place nearby?
