Default Eating habits

I was wondering what others do about their eating habits when not in your normal daily routine. I have no problem when I am at work. Here's a quick outline of what I do when at work.
6:00am Oatmeat/blueberries
9:00am Apple with a teaspoon of Crunchy Peanut Butter
11:30/12 4oz grilled chicken breast or 5oz lean top round with a solid cup of salad (romaine, broccolli, onion, spinach, tomatoe, kale, carrots) with a Tbsp of fat free dressing.
3:00pm roughly 20 natural almonds and maybe another apple
6-6:30pm Steak/Chicken with another salad
9:30-10 Protein shake
Now when I'm not at work and out running around this is almost impossible to maintain. What do others folks do.
If I'm working days I work out in the evening and if I'm working nights I workout before I go in 4-5 times a week. My goal is really to loose some weight and just live a healthier life still.

Best advice is to plan ahead with food that can be re-heated or eaten cold.

On a day when you have the time, cook extra meals and have them in tupperware. Then, when having a hectic day, pack a few meals with you and enjoy.

i know what you mean that it is difficult to maintain same eating schedule when not at work. but as commander said. the best thing you can do is plan ahead. the type of job i have does not allow me to have a means to heat my food so i have become accustom to eating my food cold. not always the most enjoyable but it works. Just pack your lunch in a little cooler and take it with you wherever you go.
