I forgot how much hungrier I am when I commute in to work. I am hungry as hell and I ate my sandwich 2 hours ago. I don't think I'll have the strength to make it home.

Sacrifice an annoying co-worker and BBQ them in your cubical. You'll feel better and work will be a better place tomorrow.

Im eating some strawberries right now to help give me some extra energy for the ride home.
On my first commute of the season I actually had to pull over to the side of the road on this really horrible climb. I was so embarrassed that I had to stop. I could have used some strawberries.

I would say if you are lactating, this would be an awesome time to self-utilize. But, since I don't remember you mentioning anything about lactating at the time, I would say try and bum some quarters for a pack of nabs.

First off, gross. Second off, I imagine taking nutrients from my own body to fuel myself wouldn't really work. I would probably burn more energy in the end through the attempt.

Strawberries and Girl Scout Thin Mints are my favorite pre-commute snack.

Theres nothing wrong with hiking a climb. As long as its not just a rolling hill. :) :monkeydance:

This one girl keeps candy on her desk. I've eaten all of her chocolate already. She has to have noticed.
:rofl:

I have coworkers that keep candy on their desks, so when I'm hunger I roam around eat it all

So you are hungry enough to complain to us, but not hungry enough to break into your pistachio stash?

:)

I think I jumped on the strawberries too soon. I still have another 20 min before I leave and I'm feeling hungry again.

See, do you see what happens if you jump on the emergency stash too soon.

Well if you break into your stash, do it BEFORE you start riding home. Biking and trying to split open pistachios at the same time would be a bad idea.

I ride to work and always used to get so hungry and needed a snack for the ride home. There is a vending machine in our office and I buy so many peanuts from it that the guy has 3 slots of peanuts just for me. mmm peanuts

laura ... how long is your commute?
Today was my long commute (working at the medical college) and it's only 15 round trip. On normal days when I am at my real office it is only going to be 8-9 miles. I've just been getting so little physical activity that I am used to not even being hungry during the day. Today I was unprepared.
