Mini lunch challenge

September 19th, 2011 at 08:55 am

I need to set small goals in order to focus, so I’m going to do a lunch challenge just for this week. Hopefully that will grow into a longer time period, but I’ll start with that. I will bring breakfast and lunch to work each day and eat dinner at home. The menu will mainly be:

Breakfast: Kashi 7-grain nugget cereal, currants, chopped apples, flax seeds, walnuts, milk

Lunch: salad with kalamata olives and goat cheese, a big cracker

Snack: grapes (delicious variety from a local vineyard)

Dinner: quinoa with steamed veggies and tuna, olive oil, salt and pepper

I cooked the chickpeas and quinoa yesterday and washed some lettuce, so it should be easy to prepare my meals. I also got another free harvest from my friend’s garden on Saturday – yippee! (I want to offer her some childcare this fall/winter for her adorable 3.5 year old daughter in exchange for the bounty I’ve received all summer.) I technically don’t need to spend any money on food this week.

I’ve been buying and eating lots of junky comfort food the last few weeks (Ben and Jerry’s Heath Bar Crunch, frozen pierogies, fish sticks, strawberry frozen fruit popsicles are my recent cravings). So, I left my debit and credit cards at home today in order to resist all temptation to stop at the grocery store on my way home. Sometimes I find myself wandering in the aisles like a zombie even after having no intention of visiting the store! Scary and a little embarrassing…

A few more goals for today: walk 30 minutes after work, prepare Tuesday’s lunch, floss teeth before bed. I have fallen off the flossing wagon and really need to get back on!

    Thanks! No if only junk food wasn't so darn appealing to me...
