It’s no secret that I both work an office job & wish I didn’t work an office job. But, until either rent & bills go away or I win the $60 million lotto tomorrow, I have to face facts & show up to work every weekday.
I get very restless sitting still every day & usually wander around outside at lunchtime. Even if it’s just to a nearby park for fresh air!
But my need to get out at lunchtime means that my lunch needs to be portable. Which means that it’s usually a plain sandwich, lovingly but hurriedly slapped together by my husband that morning while I’m running around trying to remember if I put pants on.
And sandwiches can be great. They really can be. Plus I love peanut butter. Especially Kraft crunchy peanut butter. But that doesn’t mean I want to eat it day in, day out.
The other option is leftovers. Yum.
They are nice and far more nutritious than a peanut butter sandwich. But they tie me to the office with heating & eating. Sure, I could heat it at work & take it out, but it’s just plain hard to eat spag bol on a park bench. I can barely keep food off myself while eating at a table.
For me these days it’s either/or until I can work out how to balance my need for fresh air with my need for food.
How do you manage to balance your exercise & healthy eating during a work day?
