The devil on my shoulder? She has a sweet tooth, the bitch. And the angel's away on a potty break.

I came into work today to discover a delectable looking crumble cake sitting on the little ledge above my desk. Why the evil coworker who brought it in chose my desk, when the desk to my right is not currently occupied by anyone, I have no idea. I was tempted to move it and make a big spectacle about it but... well, I didn't want to seem intimidated by the cake by moving it out of easy reaching distance so I left it were it was. And ever since I've been smelling cinnamon every time I inhale. Grrrrr.

But damn, is it good. I had just a little piece of the peach cake for breakfast. It's got peaches in it! And it has a yummy cinnamon crumbly topping! And the cake is only half gone and I can still smell it! And I'm sooooo hungry. Maybe by the end of the day, if its still there, I might grab another piece. A small one. A half of one, actually. Maybe. Or maybe I'll call forth my Super Healthy Eating Mental Powers and blast it off my desk with the laser beams I can shoot out of my eyeballs. I'm not on any strict diet (yet - though I probably should get on one) but I am trying to eat healthier.

Healthier = 1 small piece of yummy peach crumble cake ≠ 2 or more pieces, super sized

Trying. I said trying. Baby steps. Me and Bob are all about the baby steps.

And if the cake wasn't tempting enough...

My boss just laid a box of chocolates on my desk. A box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts he picked up while in vacation in Hawaii. Oh. My. Gawd. The picture on the box makes them look soooooooo good. Yummy yummy yummy. My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

Mustn't think about them.

Must do work.

Must not embarrass self by tearing into box and scarfing down chocolates like a half crazed hungry woman on a chocolate bender.

Must take my preciouses home and savor them with a little bit of 'alone time'. *nudge nudge wink wink*

And then I'll work out for a couple of hours to burn off the guilt. :)


  1. aw man, i totally know how you feel. i have been eating non-stop today... i just can't quit! it's obviously that lovely time that comes around every month... but damnit, i feel like a huge pig!

    i really don't know how i got up the will-power to lose my weight all those years ago... cuz lord knows none of that will-power stuck with me. atleast i keep exercising, which balances it all out, i think.

  2. its all about the balance. which i used to have... somewhere... think i lost it under the couch or something.
