I have no power to start this diet and usually just follow my cravings and eat chocolate to feel better for some time. I wanted to start master’s degree this autumn, but I don’t think I can do it. I would just move out to live alone and buy all the food on my own, but I don’t have money to do it. I know that for people in UK/US it sounds ridiculous, but living standard in central/eastern Europe is lower. Accomodation and food is not so obvious. That’s weird situation for me, because I’ve always considered myself as the person who “can do everything” and had lived many great adventures. But now when my energy goes down I feel so helpless… What would you do in my case?
Hi Croc. wow, i had one of those days today. This was supposed to be my second day on the diet and then my partner was miserable and not supportive (he’s “trying” to stay on the diet but is struggling also) so we bought a bunch of candy at the movies and then i had a wheat bun (turkey burger). -__-
Try not to get too down on yourself if you give in to your cravings and just try to start the diet again either for the rest of the day or the next. I know how it is to have no support. It is lonely as hell. (am i allowed to say that word on here?)
Do they have “farmer’s markets” where you live? where you can buy produce NOT from a supermarket? Today i bought lots of veggies for very little money.
Is it possible to maybe rent yourself a room? So you can live alone and perhaps save some money for your own food?
I believe you should start your master’s. You won’t get closer to your goals by NOT enrolling. Baby steps. Your first goal can be enrolling and then continue to do little short-term goals after that that are fairly easy to accomplish.
How are you feeling today?
