Lunchtime Struggles

Bryan and I have been having a constant struggle with wanting to be healthy and watching our finances vs. eating whatever we want and wherever we want. We try to bring lunch to work/school everyday so we can save money, time and our figures and just eat in my break room. But, there has sneakily been placed 3 vending machines in the break room! So, everyday after we're done eating we are faced with the chocolate concoctions in the vending machines. It has seriously been such a struggle for me to not swipe my ID card and get a treat. Thereby destroying the cause of bringing lunch! Usually if we ever do succumb to the temptation we decide to share a treat. Today, however, Bryan had to leave right away and I decided to buy the biggest ice cream cone available and eat the whole thing myself. I'm not going to say I totally regret the purchase decision (because it was delicious), but why does it have to be such a struggle? Ahhh the love/hate relationship I have with chocolate!




on another note: if you notice the first four songs on my play list are about being lucky! I thought it'd be fun to follow the St. Patrick's theme throughout. I know that a lot of people are anti having music on the blog or at least anti about having the music automatically playing when they enter. And I get it because you may already be listening to something or whatever. But, this is a blog about me and the music I'm listening to is a big representation of who I am or what I'm feeling. So, I'm sorry to those of you that don't dig the music playing automatically but I think I'm gonna keep it for now. Happy Blogging and Happy Monday!

oh geez, those vending machines get me every time. i must have been deprived of vending ice cream treats as a child, because i cannot resist them. especially those ice cream snickers- they are a million times better than a regular snickers!

I feel ya sister with the chocolate things. What helps me though is reading the calories and fat on the back there are some things I will never eat again because of reading the nutrition facts for instance oatmeal cream pies are very naughty.

I was reading a magazine article this week about the same thing! Saving money, bringing lunch.. and making sure it's healthy! It is a struggle. I don't have a vending machine at my house, but when 3:00 hits - it's quite the temptation not to make a treat or something.

And P.S. I love your music :)

I'm glad I got to see you and meet Bryan! Since I am HORRIBLE about making good food choices, I will give you no advice. I will tell you however that my brother and sister were arguing with me saying that 5oo miles or whatever that song is called has the word 'five thousand' in it. I was 100% positive it did not and said that was my roommates favorite song and I listened to it about 5000 times and never heard it. Am I losing my mind or am I totally right??! Don't they just say 'a thousand' and that's it? Please help! haha

Good for you guys brown bagging it! I have heard many finacial planners say that is the way to go! I am sure that you will be better for it and a treat every once in a while will not hurt, so enjoy your chocolate covered ice cream treat now and again:)

To Ashley...they never once say 5,000 miles in the song...google the lyrics and prove it to your roommates! LOL

Esther...I'm a chocolate addict and a Dr. Pepper addict. I don't even try to deny it. But, I figure there's room for a little obsession in everyone's life. And I love listening to everyone's blog music. It's your blog...express yourself!
