Lunch?

Post by 19delta on Sat Apr 28, 2012 6:48 pm

What do you guys do for lunch at school/work? Do you guys eat school/cafeteria lunch, bring your own, fast food or convenience shop, or skip lunch?

For those of you guys who do eat lunch at work, what do you usually have?

Couple ideas I use.

Make a big PBJ and then pack some fruit as sides. I usually take an apple, banana, orange, and/or applesauce.

Another low calorie filler is to take a bag of salad and bottle of lower calories dressing.

Or combine the two with a PBJ and a bag of salad.

If you have young kids you can pack some of their lunch stuff, their portions are smaller.

I like crunchy peanut butter. Not a big jelly fan, though. I like honey or that Nutella stuff instead. We try to keep fresh fruit in the house. The kids are funny though...sometime they do a really good job with it and other times, we end up throwing it away at the end of the week.

My lunch is usually a pretty good-sized roast beef sandwich with a slice of cheese, tomato, lettuce, home-made horseradish, and some mustard. I also eat a couple peanut or almond nut bars or some trail mix.

Good call on the kid portions...going to check that out!

I generally eat whatever leftovers my wife throws in my lunch bag with an orange/apple and some yogurt.

Generally, here's what I do for my meals. I NEVER eat school lunch, because the portions where I work now are so small I feel I'm better off bringing in my own.

Breakfast--satisfy the sweet tooth. Waffles with lots of butter and syrup or Cheerios with sugar are my most common breakfasts

Mid-morning snack of fruit or carrots.

Lunch--Peanut butter or lunchmeat sandwiches

Afternoon snack--fruit or more carrots.

Supper varies due to my second job. I always eat a salad and then one item off our buffet. It could be a couple ribs or a couple pieces of fried chicken or some shrimp. Maybe a small portion of mashed potatoes with it.

For those of you guys who do eat lunch at work, what do you usually have?

Our cafeteria opens at 6:30, and I'm the first guy in. Throw a few raisins in the bowl, add a cup of oatmeal on top, two packets of Sweet-N-Low and a coffee creamer on top. Less than 300 calories and keeps me filled up til lunch at 11:00.

Lunch is a salad (small container) with chicken pieces, a dab of bacon, some cheese, maybe some onions, topped with 1000 Island or Ranch.

I eat these things every weekday, without fail. I can leave work having consumed less than 1000 calories. I split the remaining 800 between two smaller meals at home, usually at 3:30 and 7:00.

Spent the weekend in Shawnee Forest, sitting on a horse, drinking some beer... so I'm still at 190. Goal is to hit 180 by the end of May, 175 by June and 170 by July.

I've been asked to help coach the Illinois Select Side HS rugby team on their tour of Scotland in August... be sweet to go over at my old playing weight.

I don't understand how the elliptical calculates distances. Supposedly I went 8.5 miles in 31 mins Saturday. There's no way that's even close to accurate.

My best guess is by strides,I go hard for45-55 minutes,no breaks. The readout says roughly 10 calories burned every minute,and in 45 minutes it shows 4 miles. I can't remember what kind it is,but they are gym quality machines.

I set mine for 40 minutes, and can usually get to the 4 "mile" mark in about 38 or 39. In my better days I used to get there in 35-36 minutes. But there's no calibration that I know of that accounts for the fact that my legs are 24" inseam . A taller guy, doing the same number of revs, would easily put on more than 4 miles if we were actually running.

What I don't understand is why the Chinese insist in using the letter "X" when they're translating their Kanji-character-based names into English. Especially at the beginning of their names. Who told them that was a good idea?

They do that to reduce the productivity of their American co-workers.

Its all an evil communist plot.

I mean, there is no way i can run a mile in 4:15 but I can elliptical one.

I don't really care, it just seems odd to me. I usually am at 67-71the rpm.

278 the last two mornings. This puts me down 55 since February of last year, 42 since November of last year when I really started trying, and 31 on the Challenge. I didn't time myself, but made it a personal best 5 1/2 miles the last time I went jogging.

185.8, the lightest I've been in quite a while. Down 18 since the challenge re-started in March, about a pound ahead of schedule.

Ran the official 5k this morning in 30:22. Not pleased about the time, but I wasn't "feeling it today" as the kids say. Just didn't have it. It was a struggle the entire way.

Weighed 282 afterwards.

Didn't do as well this two week period, but still dropped a couple and have weighed in at 276 the last couple mornings. This puts me down 57 pounds since my highest, 44 since November, and 33 on the challenge.

179.6 after my 7-mile pup run and two HS rugby games in the 85 degree heat.

P.S., We won and we're headed to STATE!

181 after a 7 mile trail run here in TN. Not too bad, really, considering all the retirement dinners, parties and BS this past week....
