breaking the habit

The subject of my photo is somewhat off but this was a lunch from the canteen at my workplace. I have long recognized that this food could not be good for me and have been trying to cut back on it but it was so hard granted that I got it for free. I would sit at my desk telling myself not to take their lunch then HR would send me an email with the current days menu in all its barbi-fried goodness [drools] and the only thing stopping me from slobbing one down is just for me to pick up the phone and let the canteen know what I want. They make it so easy that I don't even have to get up, it would get dropped off at my desk.

Well not anymore, I am playing starvin' Marvin up at my new location. They have no canteen and I am not willing to walk/drive anywhere to get food. That is one of the few things I miss from working in New Kingston, if I didn't want to stay couped up in the office I could walk over to one of the many restaurants on the hip strip. I'm not a big fan of fast food so my choices were limited but at least there were options. It's still early but I think it has started to affect me at home too, on Saturday I only had 1 meal for the day.. A bowl of oats at 1pm in the afternoon and I wasn't hungry or anything the rest of the day. I had 1 meal on Sunday too but that was Terra Nova, 80+ item buffet[I had 5 plates], so I guess that doesn't count lol.

I must say I am loving the 5 minute commute to/from work now.

I would bring my lunch to work but the one problem with that is that I don't wake up early enough to make it :(

gc, the correct answer to ur question is no....there is only two thing that he prepares well and its potatoes and cereal(a mix up kind of cereal that interestingly turns out well)

LOL @ Adrian and SNE.

I usually prepare my lunch for the week on Sundays. Then I just parcel it out into tupperware.

Most days I'm too busy to take lunch so I just snack at my desk all day.

The last time I was only eating one meal a day was when I had tabanca (hopefully ur Trini side knows what that means). LOL.
