“Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.” That’s how I felt today at work; surrounded by sugary treats that are not in my nutrition plan. This is why I hate the two days a week I have to go into the office, because if you know me at all, you know I don’t do well with resisting temptation.
And you may think, but yes, it was Halloween this week and everyone is just bringing in their excess candy. Think again. The candy dishes are always full. The usual treat is peanut M & Ms. Handy to just grab a handful as you pass by. So nice of the girl I sit next to who keeps a giant bag under her desk to refill the dish whenever it gets low. The rattling of the candy into the dish brings people running like a cat coming to the sound of a shaking cat food bag. Nice perhaps. But torture to me.
Though I did resist while in the office, I left with one treat tucked inside my pocket for a after workout treat. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? I’ll never tell.
Today was chest and triceps (and 30 minutes of Zumba because while I resisted the candy at work, I didn’t resist the shortbread cookies…)
