Create Your Own Action

Bring lunch everyday

I'm choosing to bring my lunch to work everyday (instead of eating out). It has always been a challenge for me to stay disciplined in bringing my lunch, and I believe that by bringing/packing a lunch, I am more thoughtful about what I am eating, and aware of how I am spending my money.

    I just had the most delicious, home-made, organic (and local!) (and vegetarian) soup for lunch! And was able to check off several of my actions :)

    Yesterday, I made myself a yummy, detox soup made from all organic and local products for my sicky-self—and it was delicious! I also watched a documentary I've always wanted to watch, but never have—Super Size Me. Have you seen it?!?! CRAZY! Anyway, today, I'm back in the office and brought a delicious salad made with organic ingredients!

    I was home sick, so I didn't bring my lunch in to work. But instead of eating out I made a meal with the food I have at home!
