My belly, wallet, and I had a meaningful conversation and we concluded that it’s time to take a break from the food binge. :p Not only will it prevent further weight gain, it will also redirect the “weight” back to my wallet. Because let’s face it; food blogging can be an expensive hobby when it is not carefully planned out.
The Confession: It’s too often that my over-excitement steer the wheel in all decision making on food. I want to eat here, there, and everywhere because it will be great for my Instagram and website. So that’s what I would do – eat, eat, and eat! The worst part is that I would over order, so that my food pictures would look more appealing. Yep, guilty! So instead of one donut, let me have five. I don’t want two cupackes – I want half a dozen! Let me also have a large side of fries right next to my large burger and I might as well get some ice cream after to complete the transaction. Yeah, this over order affects my wallet and I’m starting to feel irresponsible with my spending.
I’ve also gained some weight since I started this blog (which is a month and a half ago). Sure, I enjoy working out several times a week, but I’m not burning as much calories as I am eating. D’OHHH!!!!
Just a handful of instances when I over ordered and over ate:
The Goal: I need to find balance, discipline, and create an effective blueprint for my blog. I’ve decided to spend only two days of the week to try new places (VS every other day). This new discipline will redirect me to discuss things other than the food I eat, which is a great opportunity to write pieces like this. I think it is important to reveal the highlights and struggles as being a food blogger. One of my goals is to build a good relationship with readers. I hope broadening my topics will do just that.
Have any of you experienced these struggles or is it just me? I would love to hear about other struggles that other food bloggers endure. My next topic will be about the HIGHLIGHTS of being a food blogger. 🙂 because of course, there is that too.
Alright folks, wish me luck. HAPPY SUNDAY!
