Being a money coach is wonderful, but also stressful: I’m supposed to practice what I preach! I’ve been spending waaaay too much on eating out and, yes, lattes (again!). It’s kaiboshing (sp?) my life in other areas, ie., I am falling short of my other important goals as a result.
The thing is, it’s not like it’s even pleasurable eating out. Rather, it’s because I’m rushing around, open the fridge to grab some food and nothing much is there! By now, hungry and desperate, I go to Incendios and pay $20 for a pizza. It’s great pizza, but I’d prefer to pay that and enjoy it with a measure of intention behind it, not out of reaction to a depleted fridge. And that’s the best of it – usually, I endure McDonald’s or something equally outrageous that leaves me feeling gross and annoyed with myself.
So it’s back to basics for me, for the summer. My goal is to consistently plan a menu for the week, and have a well-stocked kitchen to facilitate it (but not too much! I hate limp lettuce, too!)
Anyone care to join me on this for the summer? Or have some tips, suggestions, strategies?
