In which I fail at healthy lunches


Lose weight before Christmas… its probably on a few peoples agendas? Sarah is going to set a challenge a week, and this weeks was eat a healthy lunch… I failed. I never take a lunch break at work, I know I should as it would be beneficial to my belly and my stress levels. But I never learn & if I do eat, its at my desk.

IMG_1239Tuesday – 1 apple and 2 cups of tea

IMG_1299Wednesday – 1 slice of carrot cake (actually it was 2)







Thursday – 1 satsuma and 1 cuppa





Friday Microwaveable noodle thing with soy and ginger





This week the challenge is to eat a healthy breakfast. I can almost guarantee you now that If I manage breakfast at all then it will be a go ahead bar. I work in a hotel so breakfast is freely available to me (chef, poached eggs on toast please…) so I am going to try and make a real effort.

I have lost a whole lb this week. I really should go to the gym. Its not really what I weigh that bothers me but my belly and arms that I dislike.

What do you eat for lunch at work? give me ideas people!!

  1. Lauren, Lauren, Lauren!!! Tut tut! Im actually pretty good at eating healthily but might just do this challenge too! Im rather good at breakfast, I take something fiberous like fruit and fibre or weetabix in tuperware. I then eat it once I get to work when i’m catching up on emails and paperwork. Lunch I usually have a brown bread sandwich with cheese and pickle (naughty!), altho sometimes salad with nuts. I like the graze boxes which are really good for healthy snacking!
    I’ve been feeling crap since having to quit the gym because I hate running and dont really get enough cardio otherwise!


  2. Protein! It makes you full! I snack on cans of tuna, and cold meats – easy to pick at and store in the fridge 🙂
