A work in progress...

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

I heard a co-worker use this term - a work in progress - to describe an issue we are resolving at the office. Everyone is working on the solution, but it's not complete yet. That's me right now...and probably always! I'm a work in progress. This week, I'm definitely making some progress with my goals! I still have work to do, but those small steps make a difference!

One of my biggest challenges is lunch during the week. I often choose to eat out with my co-workers instead of eating what I bring. It's not only bad for my weight loss goals, but also bad for my wallet! Here is what I'm doing to help get back on track:

- Cash ONLY - I've taken out a set amount of "Lunch Money" for the week. When it's gone, my lunches out are done. So far so good!! Having cash makes me not only watch how much I spend, but also forces me to think about what I'm ordering. Would I rather have a small meal and go out 1 or 2 more times that week - or blow it all on one high calorie meal?
- Appetizing & Fresh Lunches - I stocked my office with items to make sandwiches this week. This way, I don't have to prepare my lunch every evening or in the mornings. Everything is here, and ready to go. Plus, my sandwiches are nice and fresh! Each week, I can choose another type of meal or sandwich.

Today, I'm taking a friend to lunch. She lost her 5 year Golden Lab to cancer yesterday. We've already picked the restaurant and they have a good selection of healthy items.

So, here's to me...a work in progress. Looking forward to becoming a masterpiece!
