You have GOT to be kidding me!

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Typically I wait till the end of the day to do a nice little recap, but today I just HAD to write earlier. I work as a recruiter for a printing company. I have an office on site and spend the majority of my work week there. It's a million square foot facility with over 1500 employees. This company graciously provides a large cafeteria (albeit expensive) for the employees to purchase and enjoy their lunches. Since I've started sparking, Ive just avoided the cafeteria and brought my own lunches. My will power is weak in the face of Nacho Bar Day - gawd, I LOVE fake cheese!

I completely spaced and left my breakfast and lunch sitting on my kitchen counter this morning. So I ventured into the cafeteria in search of a food choice that was healthy and measurable... 'Lo and Behold I spot watermelon cut up in a handy 8oz container and cottage cheese in an 8oz container also! Awesome! I'm doing a dance in my head for the anticipated party in my mouth...then I get to the cash register and what do I see? Let me show you:

Yeah, thats right, FREE fake cheese crunchy salty goodness. One of my fave junk foods at my totally fave price. I almost wept. HOWEVER - I felt like such a goddess when I walked away. I am so freakin' awesome! Just so you know!

    HA! Don't you just hate it when it feels like the universe is conspiring against you? But HUGE congrats on resisting temptation. I probably could have resisted Cheetos...but if it had been Doritos, there's a fair to middling chance that I'd have been knocking people out of the way and shoving them in my purse. Way to go on the willpower!

    Ugh, that's a shot to the gut... I gave in today and ate 4 fish sticks my kids didn't eat. What? Was I supposed to waste them??
