    yay i can finally join this challenge, am so broke this month i HAVE to have homemade lunches :), day four and i have had four homemade lunches so far x
  • I'm a week late starting but please can I go for 4 bought lunches??

    I'm lucky enough to get free fruit at work so usually I have fruit and take a couple of slices of fruit malt loaf but sometimes the homemade soup is too tempting to pass up!!

    I have to do lunch duty and often the smell of school lunches is too tempting, BUT even as I ate it on Friday I decided it smelled better than it tasted sooo NO MORE SCHOOL DINNERS FOR ME packed lunches all month instead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Go hopefully into each new day, enjoy something from every day no matter how small, you never know when it will be your last

    I am on training tomorrow and don't know if lunch is provided so I am going to go empty handed. if there is no lunch then I will use up my one bought lunch.
    Today I had veg curry and a pitta.

    I'm going to ease myself into this one and say 3 more bought lunches allowed for the rest of the month. I've just bought a breadmaker, which leaves me no excuse not to take in big crusty doorstop sandwiches every day :-)

    I've managed 4 out of 12 so far. Not sure I can maintain the discipline - but anything is better than 0!
