This week, my co-worker has been badgering me about getting Chinese food at our favorite takeout place. I kept telling her that I brought lunch and I didn't want to buy anything. I didn't tell her that I was trying to save money and not eat out, but somehow she convinced me yesterday that we should go get some. I guess I was mad at myself for breaking my good record on eating lunch at work. It saves me gas since I don't have to drive to get food and it also saves stress, money, and the long thought process around the "What should I eat today?" question. I brought this up to my BF since I was so hard on myself but he didn't seem to care and just said "Who cares! It's just one day" so I think I'm being too neurotic about this. Of course my PF blogger friends would understand so I knew I had to write out my feelings here. In the past our department also orders pizza, Chipotle, and bagels. It's always hard to say no when you don't want to feel left out.
How do you deal with workplace peer pressure?
I have chicken in the fridge, spring mix, cucumbers and my favorite asian salad dressing ready to go for this week so I'm looking forward to that. This weekend I'll be going to Orange County for my brother's volleyball tournament so I'm hoping that I'll still have enough time to make lunch when we get back on Sunday night. I'll also have to go grocery shopping on a weekday again. I noticed that I hate grocery shopping after work, because I'm usually drained and lazy and I am not thinking straight. I enjoy it more when I go on a weekend, in the morning.
I found this picture on pinterest and I want to keep this here so I can stay motivated on grocery shopping and not eating out. My budget is truly thanking me since it went off on a Starbucks and dining binge within the last few months.
And lastly, check out Fashion Chalet's Balenciaga giveaway. I would DIE for this bag! But I can't buy it - it's close to $2,000.
