Donuts are my exception. And even then, I’m only tempted when in proximity to a shop. I always want to stop, but rarely do (even before starting WW).
So, imagine how I felt when I got to work a few days ago to find a box of donuts and muffins on my desk. Although I’d miss the going away mini-party for a co-worker, I hadn’t missed the goodies.
Yeah. Uh oh.
My supervisor saw me eying the box.
“Please, have one!” she said cheerily.
I nodded, but didn’t grab one of the two remaining glazed donuts (my 2nd favorite behind cinnamon crumb). I sat down, logged in to my computer and began making some calls. I ignored the box until my co-worker came by an hour later.
“I know you’re trying to eat healthy, want me to move this?”
“It doesn’t matter to me.”
He moved it to the next desk out of my line of vision.
All was fine until I started to feel hungry at 3:30, a few hours after my lunch. I went back to the box, ready to give in.
All the glazed donuts were gone. I didn’t know whether to be happy or sad.
