Bowl of candy

Continuing my bragging... :)
Several weeks ago I blogged about how someone at work had brought in a 2-pound carton of goldfish crackers, which I didn't touch. Then, about a week later someone else brought in a container of cookies, which I also didn't touch. THEN, someone else brought in a box of chocolate covered hazelnuts, which, guess what, I didn't touch. Now sitting on the kitchen table is an enormous bowl of assorted fun-size candy bars. Have I had any? No! It's interesting to hear everyone walk in there (I sit right next to the kitchen) and say things like, "Boy, it's dangerous having all this candy in here!" and "Time for my candy." and "Whoa, how can you sit here with all this candy...sugar rush!" Hehehe.
I don't want to be smug about it (well, I kind of do), but I haven't even been tempted to have any of these things. Well, to be totally honest, the other day I decided to try a chocolate covered hazelnut, but when I picked up the box I found that it was only the box cover and the box and its contents were gone. Don't ask me why someone left the cover there, but I folded it up and recycled it, and didn't have any substitute.
I'm so proud of myself because in the past I would've obsessed a little about all the food sitting right there near me all day. I would have taken a piece here and there, and taken a piece on the way out at night to have while I drove home, etc. Now I'm like, huh...whatever.
