One of the things I volunteer for is a "Social Committee" in our building at work. We have a small budget to do fun things for the staff.
Today's assignment was passing out chocolate and other candy to the staff as a "Surprise Chocolate Break". Honestly we do this every year so I'm surprised staff don't expect it, but WHEN we do it is always a surprise. This year we'd rescheduled it amongst ourselves several times, but we finally did it this afternoon. It's my first year on the committee so it was my first time passing it out. Bite-sized pieces of some of my favorite chocolates, Smarties, and Werthers butterscotch. Yummy, yummy! And of course we were allowed to have some for ourselves.
I did well I think. I got a sandwich bag and picked out a few pieces for my daughter and my husband. Then I put the bag away. My goal is not to eat any of them, even though I really like the peanut butter cups and some of the other treats. Chocolate is NOT part of my diet and I need to keep it that way. It's one of those foods where I could binge if I'm not careful.
If I was better I would have passed on taking ANY because my daughter doesn't need them either, but honestly, I'm just not THAT good and maybe I'm kind of hoping that when I check the nutrition tracker at the end of the day I'll have enough calories left over for a small "dessert".
