Packing my lunch

When I started my job in July, I was adamant about bringing my lunch to work each day, and sometimes I took pictures.

 

In addition to enjoying the food I make, I added it to my task list to give me something small to increase personal accountability and productivity. I did it to give a little kickstart to myself as I really wanted to give my A-game at this job (aka: not screw up). It was a simple way for me to plan ahead a little more, and slow down in the mornings (I tend to forget things in the morning rush--taking my time to pack food forced me to add a little bit of thinking time to process what I needed for each day before walking out the door). Additionally, it is always interesting to me that I feel a lot less foggy when I'm making/eating my own food.

 

Sadly, this lovely habit started to fade as the weather grew colder/I settled in to the idea of having a long-term gig, but I'd like to pick it up again in 2010. Announcing this fact on my photostream somehow makes it seem a little more official.
