I’ve been on a salad lunch diet recently, pretty neat huh? Usually it’s a combination of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, peppers, mushroom, asparagus. Sometimes I cut up a small piece of cheese into even smaller chunks and scatter them in.

Luckily our department has our own pantry, and my office is right next to it! This means I’m in and out and no one is any wiser, cos I also happen to have the first office in a row. People have to walk past me, so I know who comes and goes, but I’m spared that.

So I bring the veg in and cut them up before lunch, so it’s fresher.

It’s not really a conscious effort to diet or anything, I’m just in a salad phase. I’m sure one of these days I’ll suddenly get an urge for grilled chicken and pumpkin and pasta.

Been to the gym 3 times this week. But whatever goodness I’m feeling is spoiled by the late afternoon hunger that creeps up. So I go downstairs to the fast food place and the healthy day is ruined. Ruined, I say.

Tonight I had dinner with colleague-friend C, tomorrow lunch with colleagues P and ex-colleague J, then dinner with sis and friends. Eating out, that’s the bane of a healthy way of life.
