Why Bringing a Lunch is So Important
Thursday, March 27, 2008
...okay, I confess that I had a 1200-calorie fast food relapse today. *sigh* The one day that I don't bring my lunch to work just happened to be the worst work day since I've started watching what I eat. Mid-morning I got an email from my boss that was a total confidence buster and wouldn't you know that by lunch time, Burger King was calling my name!
I have no intention of making this any kind of habit and I think I still might be able to pull the rest of my day out of the dieting swan dive - as long as I don't have more than 300 calories for dinner! But, I can see the importance of bringing a healthy lunch and snacks. I'm not sure that carrot sticks would have been as appealing as cheesy tots, but they sure wouldn't have been as calorie or guilt-laden!
Here's to a better day and a better lunch!
