Strategic Commute

by Jenny on June 17, 2011

Today’s lunch break was a hot one!

I walked home and enjoyed leftovers from last night’s dinner of Vegetable and Tofu Stir-fry and then turned right back around to start the walk back to the office.

The only downfall to walking back and forth for lunch is that I pretty much have zero time at home once I make it there.

No complaints here though!

Sunshine and exercise?  And a break from my desk?

I’ll take it! :)


I took the second part of my lunch, homemade trail mix (dried cherries, crushed pretzels, dry-roasted peanuts and chocolate chunks), to-go and enjoyed it along with the scenery along the route back.


Once I made it back I had to steal my co-workers fan to cool off!


Good thing I was smart and packed shorts and a t-shirt for the walk home!

Now I won’t have to strategically cut through buildings to steal a second of air conditioning or duck between two tall ones to catch a breeze on my way home!! ;)


If you could go home for your lunch break every day, would you? I love being able to go home for lunch.  I love not having to pack it in the morning and also being able to use the stove or whatever else I may want/need to prepare my lunch.  Although, walking back and forth at lunch time doesn’t leave me much time so it definitely makes more sense on days that I drive.

Can you/do you walk to work?  I love that I’m close enough to walk, especially on my “off” days from the gym – I still get hidden exercise in!

I would love to bike to work but I don’t have a bike either annnnd I’m nervous about biking in the city – I always just biked around my house growing up and we were way in the country – completely different scene! haha
