One of my recent downfalls has been lunchtime. I work crazy hours and am on the road a lot during the day. I can plan healthy dinners easily. But it's just WAAAAY to easy to hit the drive through for lunch. I began packing my lunches so that I don't need to do that. I love cooking and meal planning. Except for bagged lunches. I struggle with ideas for the kids and for myself. Plus, just trying to come up with healthy ideas that are travel ready and that I'll eat is a battle sometimes - especially when you haven't planned ahead and desperately need to grocery shop...
This morning, I'm really struggling. I can't seem to find a healthy lunch amidst all the "crap" in my fridge left over from various holiday festivities. I was starting to get very frustrated. Like the really frustrated, like verge of tears at 5:30 am and ready to do something insane like eat a box of oreos kind of frustrated... (We all have different frustration and handle it differently; If you've never been that kind of frustrated, lucky you, but I'm sure you have other demons/devices. If you have been, then you get it. I'm there often...)
But then, a light bulb went off. My frustration wasn't because I was seeing all the goodies that I love and "can't have." My frustration was because I didn't WANT the goodies!!! Not really a blog worthy event, but it gave me a smile this morning so I thought I'd share.
Have a fantastic day!!
