Reluctantly I drove away after seeing the Fatburger joint today, even though I wanted to get a their signature burger with a 1/3 lb big, juicy, tasty burger so bad. I kept telling myself, as I get farther from the entrance doors , “Don’t spend it on Fatburger, don’t spend it on Fatburger…” because, I think to myself, I should save the little money I make rather than spend it on eating out. There was a point of spontaneity that was suppressed and I want to recognize that restraint is present in my decision making. Not only does this exercise my observational skills, but this choice to deny will also prove beneficial in the long term. While working toward achieving positive fitness goals I look for work and opportunities to start out some kind of career (its tough to decide what you want to do for the rest of your life). So in the long term, if I continue to buy only things I need rather than the things I want, then I can benefit in preparation for the next more meaningful purchase. However, when I come to a point of celebration, a Fatburger with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato will be in order.
