Food at WORK

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Why is it that I pack my bag for lunch every morning- to boot I pack with my clean eating foods. All healthy and food to keep my full and energized throughout my day. So when I come to work the boss is sweet but he brings fat fat fat bagels with different kinds of cream cheese. Ok, I stay away from the break room. Then, it's Valentine's Day and the office gets gifted with chocolates... lots of chocolates. We did an awesome job for patient and she comes in with food...lots of food- FRIED food.

Every holiday or just a thank you we get food or candy or cake or pie. Everything bad is sent our way. The funny thing is I work at a dental office and all we ever get is sweet prefect CHOCOLATE. It makes me so mad. The temptation is all around. At times I feel like I'm alone in this place full of smiles and chocolate. UGGG

    Our office is horrible too. I wish I could say that I could change things ,but I don't think that will happen. My office is not very educated on what makes for a healthy diet & believe me I would not be the one to tell them any different. I think it is one of the hardest things to have to do. Donuts or bagels almost every morning. Holidays are horrible. I try to maintain my sanity by having a hearty breakfast, then for lunch I go home or leave the building. In the afternoon I bring healthy snacks to much on. It's not the perfect solution & yes on occasion I still give in. I feel good about it for the most part. In a world full of temptation I can at least hold my own. Good luck to you!! emoticon

    I know exactly how you feel! It's like that in my office too. I feel like every time I say I'm going to get back on track there's a birthday celebration or some new "gift" of chocolate or some other unhealthy treat. And it gets so frustrating when you pass things up so many times, but give once in a while and it ends up adding up! Here's hoping we can both keep walking by the bad stuff and sticking to the healthy! emoticon
