New Job!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

I just accepted a promotion and will be working at my company's headquarters starting in 2 weeks!

I think they have hour-long lunch breaks there. I currently only get a half hour. That will be a half hour longer for walking! There is a large park across the street, so it will be a great motivator and opportunity for more exercise.

But it is downtown and there are way more restaurants in that area, so there will be a lot more temptation to cheat on my diet. My current location only has a Subway and a McDonald's nearby, so it isn't very hard to be motivated to bring my own healthy lunch everyday. I'll have to find a way to not let myself eat out too much, which I already have a hard time with when I'm not at work.

I am so excited! emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations! I think part of the reason we eat out so much is for the ambiance; try bringing good cloth napkins with your brown bag lunches, or other things to make it seem more special.

    That's great!

    I try limiting myself to just eating out twice a month. That way you can look forward to it and enjoy it, but not overdo it.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon I love walking on my lunch break. You will have to limit yourself to once a week or once every couple of weeks for eating out at lunch.

    You can do it. Congrats
