I didn’t participate in this challenge but it’s a great idea.
Before my injury, my lunch time routine was going to McDonalds or Subway or Paneras or one of the 3 nearby school cafeterias. My eating choices were fast food so no matter how healthy they seemed, we know that they were not. While I ate, I usually read a variety of newspapers and magazines.
First after I came back to work from my injury, I couldn’t drive so I had to bring my lunch. Then when I started driving, I still couldn’t walk so I had to bring my lunch.
Now that I am more mobile, my new lunch time eating habits have remained with me.
I eat at my desk what I bring from home. It’s usually Greek yogurt, a wheat bagel, a fruit & a drink. Then I go to our gym and spend 45 minutes on either the bike or the treadmill (watching TV on my iPad).
New lunch routine:
- save money,
- eat healthier and
- get exercise.
So there is something positive that came from my injury imposed running layoff.
Happy Running! Do you eat fast food or are you a healthy eater?
