I’ve been trying to take a closer look at what I eat. I’ve not been gaining weight, but now that I’m back at the gym, I’ve decided to try to be a bit better about what I’m putting in my body. Why bother to workout if I’m just going to fuel my body with junk?
One thing I’ve noticed is that I much less likely to make impulse purchases at the grocery store. Yesterday, after waiting nearly two and a half hours to vote, I went to the grocery store to buy some soup for lunch. Naturally, I was starving, which is the worst time to go to the grocery store. I found myself looking at ice cream and cookies at one point, and I kept looking at the price and the calories, and thinking that I didn’t need the calories and I didn’t need to spend the money. Combined, those two reasons were enough for me to keep my money in my wallet and keep me eating healthy.
But really, I just need to not go to the grocery store while I’m hungry. It’s better for everyone involved.
