Wellness Wednesday - Lunch Edition

So, for about the past 5 years I was packing my lunch and bringing it into work: a turkey sandwich (nothing on it) and an apple. I would also not bring any money in so that I would be forced to eat what I brought in and not be tempted to get skittles at the hot dog cart outside my building. Well needless to say I was totally burned out on these foods and could barely force myself to take a bit of the sandwich.
So, recently I have not been packing my lunch at all! It's something about lunch meet that sits in your frig for a week that gives me the willizes! Yuck! I have been basically eating the same thing, but for some reason it tastes so much better... because it's fresh I am guessing?
I get a sandwich from west wing cafe on Mondays. I seem to always get the same thing: smoked turkey on whole wheat bread with lettuce and tomato. I don't like condiments, so it's not a big deal not to put them on my sandwich. The sandwich is super big so I only eat half of it and save the other half for Tues. I usually bring in my own fruit (apples, oranges, grapes, or strawberries) to eat along with it. I forgot my piece of fruit yesterday and they charged me a 1.20 for one apple! rip off! Wed. I switch it up and get a salad from Chop't (grilled chicken, egg, avocado, tomatoes and carrots with romaine lettuce). Yumm! I love their salads. Then for Thurs and Friday I go back to the half of sandwich West Wing cafe lunch. Sometimes I do treat myself to a small piece of candy. My boss keeps a candy bowl in his office, which is the death of me. I love candy too much and am not the type of person who could ever have a candy dish because I would eat everything right away!
I don't drink anything but water throughout the day and I drink a lot of it. I am always going to the bathroom just about every hour.
Overall, I basically just try to eat healthy while I'm stuck in front of a computer for 8 hours. And I am the type of person who goes on food kicks and I don't want to eat anything else. I'm sure I will burn myself on this food rotation as well. I still can not eat pop tarts because I had them every day my freshman year of college.
So does anyone else go on food kicks? Hope everyone enjoys their lunches!
Happy Wednesday!


  1. i think you may work near me! I go to west wing every now and then.

    I try to bring my lunch but I HATE cold cuts. they gross me out!

  2. I am obsessed with Chop't. There is one half a block from my office so I'll go there or subway if I don't bring. Devon & Blakely also has really good sandwiches!
