Need some fukers to keep me strong
Nearly jizzed off £400 on a jacket and I’m less than 3 weeks in
Also living on a calorie deficit diet and running and exercising like mad feels like something’s gonna give
Keep me strong fukers

If the diet pays off won't you need a whole load of new clothes in smaller sizes!

You dont need a Mario Balotelli, Fuzzy. He'll disrupt the balance of your squad and set you off on a spending spree that'll involve import duty and customs complications. AND you'll exceed your wage bill. Search the classifieds for a cheeky Bosman to scratch that itch.

Dude Hold tight for 14 days and I guarantee you the itch will pass. Consider a tech purchase or a nice meal, and that’ll work as a nice splurge.

Stay strong bro

^ also the fashion gods (no hiroki) were smiling down on me, the tux trousers never got sent out due to running out of stock, so took it as a sign and returned the jacket and said fuck it

I have managed to stay strong so far. Been tempted I must admit. Sold a shirt and automatically thought about buying something with the cash. Oops

I had the holiday of a lifetime last year. I want to have that again end of this year or going into 2020. Knowing money is being saved for holiday is enough motivation for me to stop spending on random shit I don't need.

Can you actually have two holidays of lifetime in the same lifetime?

Might as well drop some cash on Visvim or alternatively prepare for disappointment, Smith.

Florida to see my NFL team play at home. Something I've wanted to do since I was a kid. Also saw LeBron play against the Magic and couple days later my team play and beat the magic with a buzzer beater. My seats cost me a small fortune so definitely once in a lifetime thing for me. The Parks were cool too but sport is my passion.

Read one book, started a second - sounds pathetic but so is my target tbf. 30km ahead of schedule for my mileage target for the year. Haven't had a drink yet and have managed to avoid fizzy drinks (no nankid) so far as well.

Haven't bought anything since last year, but the urge is as bad as it was in week 1. Actually pressed checkout on a sale jacket, and immediately felt buyers remorse and thankfully 2FA on my credit card allowed me to cancel.

Still want the jacket though Laughing out loud

Haven't managed to meditate in the mornings as I hoped, but have managed to stick to 3x a week gym sessions.

All taking its toll however, sympthaise with Fuzzy when he said earlier above that somethings going to snap Laughing out loud
