    I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that. BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food! Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.

    My little Nutrisystem box is coming today. I HOPE I like it!!!! I got a big box before, years ago, and I did not like it. So did not stick to it. But I'm so tired of my overspending on food (Door Dash) delivery. When I get restaurant delivery, I don't even end up liking the food that much. If I get fast food, it's good, but when I order from a restaurant, the food is much less appealing and good than when you eat on site. The kind of food I get (partial to fried foods) makes me thirsty, tired. I've gotten to the point where I am so fed up, I'm just dying for the Nutrisystem box. That's the way I am when I go on a beauty No Buy and it ends up being successful - fed up with my behavior, feeling like I can't wait to change. It's nice Nutrisystem now has these little boxes you can get at Target and Walmart to try out and you don't have to spend over 200 up front and get a subscription. I'm going to try different things with food each week until I figure out a plan to cut back. This will be harder than beauty No Buy for me.

    Me too! I really need clothes and shoes but won't buy them for myself. If I do have money I just want to buy cosmetics. I really don't use them either, but on my plan at least I get to enjoy the skin care and bath and body products!

    I had no idea what this was until I seached it. I'm good at not buying things for a long time but I also spend WAY too much on eating out, and then I make a big purchase, like I got a car 2 weeks ago and now I'm going to have to make monthly payments on that. 😕 I usually try to thrift and tbh I used to never buy clothing or shoes but I've always liked buying makeup that...I don't really wear. lmao.

    My workouts are good, I’m just not consistent enough to really drive results. I tend to fall off the bandwagon, but I can still offer some helpful tips for whenever you’re able to lift again. I always make sure I do at least five minutes of cardio to warm up then stretch every muscle group and drink plenty of water before, during, and after exercising. Proper form and lifting within your strength limits are crucial as well. You want to lift heavy enough to work hard, but not so much that your form suffers and you struggle. A good rule of thumb for how heavy your weight/dumbbell should be is that you should be able to do 8-12 reps with good form but still feel like you’re working. Lastly, don’t forget to do your cool down and stretch again when you finish. Hope this helps!
