    Lunch was provided yesterday so I am still on track and haven't bought any lunches yet. Last night I made cream of mushroom soup so I've got that today.

    Was all going well....went to London today (work) and had a pub lunch..I don't even drink!! alas..£12.95 less than before I walked in...groan....:eek:

    I will take sandwiches next too days (have lots of sandwich fillings and bread)..or lock myself in at home to work...probably safer!!

    On the whole I am doing better....so cant be too annoyed with myself...:D

    Bit late I know but can I join this? So far this month I have taken packed lunches into work. I have only had problems with spending on coffee out :(

    I've amazed myself with managing 10 so far.
    Partly helped by having a routine now of making a loaf of bread at weekends, slicing and freezing it and then pulling them out each day to make sarnies with. Long may it last!
  • Greetings, all! Hope everyone is back in the lunch making mood.

    I have a frozen brick of butternut squash soup- will probably hog the microwave for a bit while trying to defrost it!
