Bad Lunch-bringing Blogger!

July 3, 2008


So much for self control. I spent $15 this week on lunch fixings and had been making awesome roast beef sandwiches with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, cheddar cheese with salad and baby carrots on the side. With only a four day week, I should have been set!

Despite the well-rounded meals, I couldn’t kick this craving for something fatty, or (almost) greasy. Despite having a nutritiously-sound lunch, I was still finding myself needing sweets or snacks and still feeling hungry all day. What’s up with that?

Yesterday, my answer was: pizza. We all chipped in to buy a medium pizza and a few orders of Boneless Chicken Wings. I managed to find a 20% online coupon for a first time online orderer, so that was helpful. We split the bill among the pizza&wing eaters, and just wing eaters, to be scrupulously fair, and I assigned the bill collection to another coworker so I could get the order in. My share turned out to be $9 for three slices of pizza and several helpings of wings.

And actually, guilty though I feel for spending out of turn, I did feel better for having a tummy full of pizza and honey barbeque wings.

    Sometimes the greasy pizza and wings are exactly what was needed! The biggest food problem I’m finding is that I end up starving earlier if I happen to eat breakfast in the morning.

    Matt: I feel totally vindicated! Spoke with a dietician friend, and she said that it was ENTIRELY possible that I’m not getting enough fat in my diet to make me feel full. Hah! 🙂
