TGIF!!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday! Well, once a month we have a potluck for the month’s birthdays at work. I tried…I TRIED to do a healthy themed potluck. And, this has been the worst turn out for a potluck at work.
I did however try something made with soy for the first time…have to say I am not a fan. But, it was worth a shot. So, what did we have you ask? Well, I’m sure the title gives it away what my one weakness was today: Chocolate cake! Which, I shall harp on that in a little bit. Before I get all the fingers pointed at me, can I at least plead my case on what healthy foods I did eat??!!
Ok, here we go. We had a fruit tray, which I had some pineapple and grapes for breakfast. Someone also brought a raw veggie tray. We had homemade Mexican Chicken casserole, not all that healthy, but very tasty. Someone else brought a veggie goulash thing with zucchini, tomatoes, squash, and onions…it was ok. And, then I also tried Soy sausage wontons..not a fan of this either.
And then there was the chocolate cake! Well, want to know the worst part? No one else signed up to bring a dessert. So, I asked the January birthday folks what kind of cake they wanted. And, they all said chocolate. Therefore, last night I went to the bakery at the local grocery store and bought a chocolate cake and vanilla cupcakes. I drove home with that sweet chocolaty goodness in the car. Then drove to work this morning. It smelled wonderful. It has been taunting me and calling me since 9:00pm yesterday. I will admit it…I’m having a piece as I write this. It’s a lot smaller piece then what I would have gotten in the past. Sigh, I did cave and have a piece. Can I whine like a child and say “But, I want a piece really bad”? And it is so yummy, but I notice a lot sweeter than I am used to.
In conclusion, I admit I am not strong enough to resist chocolate cake altogether. Uh-oh. However, I will only have this one piece. I will also be walking on my break this afternoon.
I understand my eating habits won’t change over night and I’m working on it. Hopefully, by next month, I will be able to resist whatever cake they have. 🙂
Anyone else have problems resisting certain foods? It’s ok, you are not alone in this. 🙂
Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend. ~Charity
