Chips for Supper

Avoiding the greatest thing on earth — chips for supper

Fast Food Fail: August 28 – September 3


I’m reporting this in an attempt to lose weight.  I’m going to start with just updating on getting fast food (too often) or going to sit-down restaurants (more rare).  Eventually it might turn into posting all that I eat, or even how much I spend.

  • Sunday: Ate at home!
  • Monday:  Ate at home!
  • Tuesday:   I had a split shift today, with a 4 hour break. And the water was shut off in my building. So instead of going home I decided to go to the mall for a bit.  Did you know that KFC’s Zinger sandwich isn’t that spicy? They’ve really reduced their spiciness and I don’t think I like it anymore
  • Wednesday:   Ate at home!
  • Thursday:  The Devil happened.  To recover from the devil, I went to have some sushi in my 2 hour break from work.
  • Friday:   Ate at home!
  • Saturday: Ate at home!

I need to get motivated to do exercise. I’m going back to nights next week so I’ll have all morning to do stuff (start work at 3pm). What are some easy things that I can do? What’s a good way to motivate myself to actually get out?

  1. For me, it might be just changing into my workout clothes – even if my brain says no, putting on the clothes without thinking about it gets me going in the right direction. Doesn’t always work, but usually does – I’m back into journaling my food intake on paper, it’s a lifelong job for me! Also love the fast food, and two days of Green Burrito taco salads for dinner has been a contributing factor to my epic fail. Good thoughts to you –

  2. Theres always a couple of songs that, when I hear them, I can’t wait to go out and kick some butt.

    Also, putting on workout clothes is a good one, californiabean! The brain is easily fooled. If you can create cues – like putting on workout clothes, listening to a song you usually listen to when working out, filling up your water bottle – it just expects where you are going and its not so resistant.

    I find looking at my old jeans that I looked hawt in and can’t fit into anymore helps too.

    • I think I have some clothes around here that don’t fit anymore (in a bad way) but nothing that’ll motivate me. Part of my problem is that my lowest adult weight is higher than some of the twitterfolks’ highest adult weight. :sadface:
