OK, so as I hinted yesterday, the disgustingly full feeling after eating that burrito (sorry Chipotle!) has sparked a fire in me. A fire for change and all that is good. I am ready to turn my back on childish ways. I am ready to……..stop eating out!
I have been feeding myself (am I witty or what?) so many excuses:
-I don't have food.
-The kitchen is messy.
-I have too many meetings.
-I want to eat with my friends.
-I'm tired after class.
-I just got food poisoning from cooking for myself. (If only that was a joke!)
…And so on! But the cost and health aspects are starting to concern me. I really need so stop the (excuse me) bull shit. Otherwise I'll never change. So today, I stocked my kitchen with cereal, lunch meat, pasta, and some basic chicken (what other kinds of chickens are there?) and seasonings. Oh, and I threw out the eggs that gave me food poisoning. My goal is to go 7 full days without eating out. I will let myself buy an emergency soda if I feel like I'm going to die from boredom (caffeine makes me seem interested in life), but that's it.
I do like eating with friends, so if that becomes a big issue I will try to start packing food and bringing it to wherever they go to eat. I just want to stop all of the excuses. I will keep you updated on my progress this week. Hopefully the end result will be success and happiness.
What kind of stuff do you like to make for yourself? Do any of you feel like you're propensity to eat out has gotten out of control? I would love some advice or buddies to help a sister out!
