Must Have Willpower

I'm the worst when it comes to willpower and self control. It's at about 0. I'm supposed to be on my No Buy for this month and I'm already shaking in withdrawal. But I can't give up because I need to save this money. I just had to buy some glasses because my old pair were on their last leg arm and I cried a little on the inside. But I was budget friendly with my glasses, so all is not lost. I ordered them online from Coastal and I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. The frames were on sale for $64! They're different from the style I normally wear and I'm excited to see how they look on me. I used the Virtual Try on where I uploaded my pic and tried them on that way, hopefully they look as amazing in person!

Anyway enough side tracking! A major area where I have no willpower - food! I am guilty of being a constant snacker and it shows. I have been making healthier decisions for the most part, but snacking is my down fall. I have to beat it, but I just give in all the time, and too easily. I drink water constantly when I'm at my desk, hoping to quell the cravings, but it doesn't always work. I really need to cut it out and be more strict. I have to be healthier. Those subway stairs will not defeat me.

I really need to be more disciplined in the gym too. I only do cardio for 20-30 mins and move on to the machines. I should be doing more than that. But I just tell myself its enough that I'm even at the gym, it's a step in the right direction, blah blah. And rush through my time there so that I can catch my TV shows. This is very sad and almost defeats the purpose of me going to the gym. I really need a gym partner to help me. :(

Anywho... that's all for now.

  1. I am a frequent snacker as well. As of late I have been eating lots of carbs and it definitely shows. However, I am determined to make healthier snack choices and get back on my exercise plan.

  2. Try doing HIIT for the 20-30 minutes instead. That what I would do to get more burn.

  3. I keep hearing abt HIIT. I need to figure out a good routine to do that won't kill me. Thing is too, I'm super shy about working out when I'm at the gym. I feel too self conscious.
