eating healthy : day 4Tags : food, life .
healthy lunch count : 3 for 4
you may recall that before my trip i posted a picture of our fridge and spoke about eating healthier. so this week was my first week back to work. i figured i need to take baby steps with this eating healthy thing, i usually have gone all heave ho and flopped back into my old ways after a week. so i decided we'll start small, with lunches, since this is my most unhealthy meal of the day. i usually eat a weird array of food for lunch, and most days i've grabbed anything i can before running out the door. there's usually 60% junk food thrown into the mix. i know, i know, that seems high but i'm a snacker, what can i say. our work cafeteria offers a bunch of healthy food (but you do pay for it) so i pretty much opt this out. but sunday night i decided it's time for that change. i went out back and picked a bunch of lettuce (3+ lbs, wooowa) from the garden and have had salad everyday for lunch. besides yesterday when i had lunch out with my good friend sara. but i've been eating healthier at work, which is a plus, woohoo! i know my problem is i'm a snacker, i'm not usually hungry when doing this but i'm putting my foot down to fight the urge and have a few healthy snacks (whole wheat crackers and assorted nuts) to helping me thru the day instead.
