    ok i will ask this what do you eat during your day at work? how many times do you eat? what gives you a boost of energy? what takes your energy away (makes you lazy)? take out or sack lunches?

    I usually bring a sandwich, some snacks, plenty of water and gatorade. Take out makes me lazy. Once a week I will grab lunch at Wawa. For those of you that don't know what Wawa is it's a convenience store with awesome lunch food, coffee, snacks, and most of them have gas stations now.

    A sit down meal around 1:00 and sometimes up to a gallon of Gatorade through out the day. Water too.
    The sit down meal is a real re-charge.

    I usually stope somewhere for lunch. Fast food. Be it subway, quiznos, DQ, Burger King, Braums... Sometimes I grab a couple heart stopper chedder dogs at the kwik shop (gas station). If I'm in a hurry I just get it to go and jamb it in my neck on the way to the next lawn. I pretty muck always eat whatevers close, not driving across town to feed a craving, lol.

    I just don't do well without lunch... I get to feeling puny and weak if I don't eat. Not to mention for the hour or so that I'm feeling the hunger I'm not nice to be around, lol! I also just can't seem to make myself ever pack a lunch. I don't know why. Something about cold sandwich and chips just makes the day stink. Being able to stop and have a good lunch that I can enjoy eating, even if it's really fast, is one of the perks of being self employed.

    lunch???? Why??? I dont have time to eat. I eat when i get home at night after sharpening blades and greasing machines. During the busiest part of the season it could be 9 pm or later before I eat.

    I don't eat much just lots of liquids water, pop, gatorade, we stop maybe twice a week at subway, or wendys. The guys pack lunch most of the time. I had a guy that had a multi pocket tray full of vitamins and would eat two cans of dry tuna. Yes he was a hauss. :weightlifter:
