This whole save money lose weight plan is quite difficult. So far I haven't lost any weight, but I have been very tight with money. Mostly because I don't have any left after putting as much as possible on my credit cards. I have several motivating factors to succeed at both things right now which means I have to really step it up. We have just purchased tickets for Hawaii and I don't want to feel fat or broke on vacation. Ironically the stress of my goals makes me want to eat and spend money.
Today I rode my stationary bike for the first time in a very long time. I plan to combine the steps I've been getting with some additional biking. What I have been doing is great, but it clearly isn't enough so cross training seems like a good solution.
Saving money is hard because I like to go out and do things and that costs money. I have been making a concerted effort to go to less expensive places when I do go out and I have even been cooking at home this week. One thing I have noticed is the less expensive things don't seem to be as diet friendly. I need to work on portion control when I cook at home, and look for ways to eat less starch.
