Last week was my first week on the phones after completing training. It was intense, but overall not nearly as stressful as the other customer service jobs I've had. At first I was freaking out because I was so tired in the mornings, even with enough sleep, and basically zoning out at night. Then I realized that I have to just let my body get used to the new routine and I'll be fine. Once the we get past this more fickle weather stage of spring I'll feel more normal as well.
First Break: Dried fruit, almonds, string cheese.
Lunch: Tuna and avocado, apple, string cheese.
Second Break: Veggies and hummus, orange.
I didn't actually eat the veggies and hummus. I was nervous all day, which will generally kill my appetite. So I saved them for the next day.
First Break: Chocolate almond milk, almonds, banana.
Lunch: Beef stew, salad with Lemon Goddess dressing, clementine.
Second Break: Veggies and hummus, clementine, apple.
I made beef stew a few weeks ago and froze a few servings. This was the last of it. I try to make it the same way my mother does, which makes it an outstanding comfort food. And yes, I did eat the veggies and hummus.
First Break: Clementine, dried fruit, mixed nuts, chocolate.
Lunch: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, banana, chocolate almond milk
Second Break: Veggies and hummus, apple.
First Break: Chocolate almond milk, banana.
Lunch: Salad with Lemon Goddess dressing, leftover grain and veggie goodness, orange.
Second Break: Granola, almonds, dried pineapple, chocolate, apple.
Friday I had every intention of bringing my lunch, since it was not a pay week and it was the first week in awhile where there wasn't a potluck. However, I didn't sleep well on Thursday due to nightmares and sinus pressure. I ended up laying in bed until the last minute. So I threw some fruit and nuts in my bag and stopped by the co-op for a giant coffee and a sandwich. I'm tempted to buy a few frozen dinners for mornings like that, but then I don't want to become too reliant on them.
What I really need to do is start putting as much of my lunch together as I can the night before.
