The vending machine did not get my money today!

I usually bring my wallet with me. You know, that just incase I may want something. Well, today I even brought my wallet and didn't buy anything. i know that leaving my wallet at home would be the obvious choice. However, I want to be able to tell myself no.
I remember my dad used to ask me this question all the time. I know you want it, but do you need it? Are you gonna die if you don't have it? No, I won't! Therefore, I want to be strong enough to tell myself no. I packed my lunch today. I felt really good doing that because I don't keep junk in my house so whatever I would have to pack would have to be relatively healthy.
I think my next goal will be to do a meal plan in advance. Like on the weekends when I have the day off. commit to planning and making my meals. That way I can count calories, fat and carbs.
I have often wondered what is the better way to go. Counting carbs or calories? I know that you have to exercise and that you have to burn more than you take in to make a difference. That is the basis I am going on. Hopefully everything else will fall in to place as I need them too!
The one thing I dread the very most as I have been going over sparkpeople is measurements. I have yet to take them this time around. However, I know that I should so that is a really great way to track my progress. I know this girl at my work who had done it for me once before and I think I may ask her again. I have to say though, that is my worst fear is anyone at all knowing my measurements. I don't like that fat or the fact that that number is usually never what I was hoping.
Only a few minutes of work left today! believe when I say, I could not be happier. Today has not been a bad day. However, it has been long. The longer it is the more time I have on my hands as the day slows down. Boredom sometimes leads to eat and there comes the junk.
I think I am a salt junkie.
