I’ve been doing good recently with making my lunch and taking it to work. I started doing this for two reasons:
1. When I was eating at home, I was eating junk that I could throw together in the short amount of time. It wasn’t very healthy and started contributing to some issues I was having.
2. When I was eating at home, I started falling asleep. I can’t afford to fall asleep on my lunch break and not make it back to teach a class.
So in an effort to avoid both of these things, I’ve tried really hard to change my habits. I used to have all of my meals cooked for me (at my old job) so I’m not used to having to pack a lunch/cook something. It feels strange.
I’ve been trying to change it up too, so I’m not always eating the same thing. I made basil chicken pasta two weeks ago, and I would change up the veggies/side items so that it wasn’t like I was eating the same thing three days in a row, even though I was. And I’ve been doing some stir fry and lots of good veggies.
Today, I decided to make rice balls for my lunch tomorrow. I love tuna rice balls, so I just popped some rice into my rice ball shaper, mixed up some tuna and mayo and popped it in. They’re a little bigger than normal rice balls, but I can’t wait to eat them tomorrow! ^^
Of course I put them into cute bags when I was finished with them. I couldn’t resist. ^^
Oh, and by the way, Happy October. I had wanted to debut October with my new idea (I know, I keep talking about it, but you have no idea what it is, but I swear it’s coming!) I’m waiting on a friend answering some questions and actually compiling the information into a story. I’m looking at this weekend, as long as I don’t get busy. We’ll see, but it is coming! I have big plans… big, big plans. I just have to get the first one done.
I hope this month is a good one for everyone. Let’s do our best!
