I broke down and bought a snickers...

February 3rd, 2005 at 01:48 pm

from the vending machine at work. I was so hungry and bored - this is the first time in years when I've had nothing to do at work.

I only had some chef salad for lunch. There wasn't much left - I had made it originally a few nights ago and added some fresh lettuce this morning.

And, a few days ago I bought a soda from the vending machine. So I'm out $1.60. Now I have to add it to my food budget. I could have bought so much more with that money - I feel really guilty. I usually never have soda either - I just had a craving for it.

I'm thinking about making a no-bake breakfast bar recipe I found on the Internet tonight. I don't have chocolate chips but it should still taste yummy. For those days when I don't have time to eat breakfast, I can just cut a bar off and bring it in the car (as a passenger).

    I know how you feel about lunchtime guilt. There is a cafe right next door and it's so tempting to zip in there and get something. Must. resist. the. cafe. LOL It sounds like you're maintaining pretty well, though. Keep up the good work! $1.60 isn't too bad.

    I used to have this problem at work too! I solved it by buying a box of Snickers at Sam's Club and keeping them in my locked drawer in my desk. When the craving hit, they were there and I paid a lot less than those vending machines wanted.
