Are You Guilty of Eating Meals At Your Desk?

Postby tam2005 » Mon Mar 16, 2009 12:41 pm

HI there,

I thought this would be an interesting topic to share.

I was doing really good there for awhile about not eating at my desk. But at this very moment, I'm having peanut butter and crackers (for lunch) and yes, at my desk!! :?

What about you? Do you eat meals at your desk?

I just had lunch sitting here reading the forum, so yes, I am definitely guilty!

Have you ever spilled liquids(coffee, coke, orange juice)on your desk? I have and now keep such items on a different table.

I've spilled a few things on my keyboard on a few occasions. Generally I try to keep my beverage away from the important parts of the computer.

Yes, I usually eat at my desk. I am always eating something different from the family and usually at a different time - as far as dinner goes - I will sometimes go in there and sit with them when they eat, though.

But I generally do eat all of my lunches and dinners at my desk. Breakfast in the wingchair NEXT to my desk. LOL

Bad habits...I know....

I often eat lunch at my desk, but I've been forcing myself to eat at the kitchen table now, just to be sure my eyes get a break from the screen for a while.

I certainly have done that yes, but lately I have forced myself to eat in the kitchen with the family. LOL

I eat at my computer too but like some of the others, I'm trying to break the habit. The last time I cleaned my keyboard, I could have made a meal out of the crumbs that came out of it. :shock:
