What I Spent and Ate

Today I went to therapy, then I went grocery shopping at the Indian store and I spent $3 over my budget. So I have to subtract that $3 from my eating out budget this week.

A girl contacted me off meetup.com and we are going to a comedy show tomorrow, so that is going towards my goal of having a busy social life

Because we are going out, I increased my eating out budget by $10 per week, to make it more realistic. So now my eating out budget is $35 per week. I’m going to try to spend only $16 when I go out tomorrow and then another $16 when I go to my weekly dinner on Wednesday. It’s going to be difficult but not impossible. We are going to dinner before the comedy show and I can’t eat much at the place because its a wing shop and I’m a pescatarian, plus my diet goals, so I’ve decided to just have some sweet potato fries and water at dinner. That is $7. Then at the comedy show hopefully they will have a drink I can order around $8 plus $1 tip. It says Comedy Happy Hour so hopefully it will be Happy Hour prices. I think the key to sticking to my spending budget will be to have a plan ahead of time.

Today I studied for a LONG time for the GRE. I did 3 sections of Verbal and 1 section of Math. The Math frustrated me and I needed a release so I decided to go shopping. Wait!! before you roll your eyes. I had a coupon for Bath & Bodyworks for a free item up to $6. I decided this was a good time to test my No-Buy will power. So I went to Bath & Bodyworks and only got my $6 free item. I did not spend a penny at the mall.

I left the mall and filled my tank with gas, then came home and went to a GRE Math class on Exponents and Roots. Roots are so confusing to me but the class helped a lot.

As for my diet goals, something is wrong because I have gained 2 pounds. I gained 1 pound since yesterday. This is really concerning to me so I’ve decided to drastically lower my calories today to see if that makes a change. Instead of eating my normal 1600 – 1700 calories, I am only going to eat 1200 today.

So far today I have eaten:

Breakfast: oatmeal (380 cal)

Lunch: Soy wrap sandwich (410 cal)

Dinner: not yet

Whatever I eat for dinner will be around 400 calories
