The past 2 days I’ve been keeping a journal of what I’m eating. I did the same thing a few summers ago when I wanted to lose weight. It makes me think a little harder about what I’m eating – is that food healthy? Am I actually hungry, or am I just bored?
And I think it’s also going to help me save money. I’m going to think farther ahead – so if I’m out and about all day, maybe I’ll throw a water bottle and a few granola bars in my purse, so I don’t have to go out and buy something. It’s healthier and costs less.
I’d still like to lose about 5 lbs. before the wedding, and I have about 3.5 weeks to do it in.
This coming weekend I’m going camping with a few girlfriends, and I’ll have to wear a bathing suit, which I’m not exactly thrilled about. But it’s the first time I’ve had to put it on all year, so I guess I had a good run while it lasted.
Anyway, I have to do a few things around town today, so I’ll be doing a lot of walking. And then perhaps in the evening, I’ll go for a run or a long walk.
I think BF and I are going to join a rock climbing gym. Apparently with his job, he gets membership to the gym for free, and I would get it for 50% off (a 3-month pass is $200, so I would only have to pay $100). BF said we should split the cost of the gym, but I don’t think it’s fair for him to have to pay for my membership, since he gets his for free. But whether I pay $50 or $100, it’s still a really good deal. I think that if we both commit to going at least twice a week, it would be worth it. And rock climbing is a lot more fun than going to a regular gym, so I think it might work out.
