I’ve been MIA a little bit more than usual lately. Life, you know, doing stuff, going places. Supernatural: The Musical was on television.
Anyway. I did join a Maintain Don’t Gain weight challenge at work where the idea is to not gain weight over the holidays. I’m kind of excited for it, my weight has crept up over the last few months (year… years…) so I needed something to help keep me a little bit accountable and aware of what I’m doing. Turns out, Kellie, Kim, Rae, and Lisa were on board with a holiday accountabilibuddy program and weight’s easier to lose when you have people to go to when there are cupcakes right outside your door.
If I had any doubt that there might be a self-control problem on my part, it was reaffirmed today when I informed my colleagues upon leaving for the day that I had not eaten a donut, nor a cupcake, neigh not even a slice of the cake that was available in our office today. Not a single one. The looks on their faces of total and complete shock were a sign that maybe I’d been overindulging in my sweet tooth lately… I mean, they were shocked. And then one of them said, “I thought the sweets, candy, cakes, etc. were lasting a lot longer than usual…”
One in particular has reserved his judgment about my commitment to healthy eating until he sees me turn down french fries at the lunch table. I can’t guarantee my commitment goes that far, but I am seriously considering waiting until the fries are actually offered to me before I start eating them the next time.
