I know what you mean!  When I was working, it was so tough to find good things to eat for lunch.  And Subway is something I can’t eat very often.

RAISING MY HAND!!! I also try and bring my lunch; but lets face it; I don’t always have time to pack after I hit my snooze 3 times before I get up… So fast food it is. I usually try and get something “halfway” decent but sometimes my cravings get the best of me…. I agree; subway gets old pretty fast; & there are even tempting things like BMT’s and Meatball subs that tease me…

& actually when I do eat super healthy for lunch; I’m usually so hungry by the time supper rolls around right when I get off work; that I don’t eat very good….. So sometimes something with a little substance works better for me @ lunch time…

I TOTALLY get it! It’s so hard to find low-cal lunches, even in a city with lots of options. I’ve been eating Subway like it’s my job (when I don’t bring my lunch), and I was seriously just thinking “I can’t eat another Subway sandwich!” I really like sandwiches, though (not a fan of salads), so you know, with the bread it’s hard to find low-cal ones. Cosi uses flatbreads, so I’m thinking they might be my next obsession. Hmmm. I almost cracked today and get a bagel sandwich that was like 800 calories or something. But I didn’t. Phew!

And I’m just not someone who can bring lunch everyday. I try to shoot for three times a week, which I usually stick to, but it’s really hard to prepare everything and take it all with, etc.

Honestly, I try and steer clear of subway because of the bread. I know it’s all hyped-up to be super healthy and stuff, but when I look at the size & puffiness of that bread, I really wonder to myself how that can be healthier than the 2 (boring) sqare slices I have at home!

I love bread though.. a sandwich is always more appealing on a hoagie roll 🙂

I hate Subway. I think it’s gross. I usually bring my lunch but I had to take someone out and I ended up eating 3/4 of a calzone and a salad…..and the rest of the calzone is on my desk, saying “eat me!”

I just had ice cream for lunch.  So I think you did better than me…..

It happens to the best of us!  I think it’s actually a good thing to do this once in a while because it will remind you how crappy you feel from having a bad lunch and encourage you to eat healthy!

I usually eat Subway a couple times a week.  You have to be careful though because all the sauces except maybe two are very fattening! They are also loaded in sodium.  This week I brought cereal with some berries and banana on it.  It was okay.  Making/planning lunches is very tiring.

it happens to all of us.  i’m personally not fan of fast food at all but it’s the sweets that get me.  I try to bring lunch 3 to 4 times per week.  The days I don’t I like to go to the nearest grocery store and pick up a lean cuisine or hit up their salad bar.  I love salads and it’s a way healthier option than any convenience food.

Yeah, Walmarts in the Springs are scary!  I think I went there twice.

Have you SEEN my lunch box? Wait for it….wait for it…

it’s a 16 can cooler tote. It’s bigger than a backpack or purse. And they make fun of me for pigging out all day but it’s mostly healthy. I like things separated.
