So moment of truth here. Is anyone else really scared of all the temptations that will be dangling themselves in front of your face this week?
The mouthwatering trays of cookies, the delicious cheese plates, the cheesecake, the endless supply of wine and the appetizers galore. I must say if this week is anything like last week I am going to be in trouble.
Last week went like so…
Monday: Office Birthday Party
Wednesday: Office Baby Shower
Thursday: Office Christmas Party
Friday: Friend’s College Graduation Party
Saturday: Christmas Cocktail Party
SERIOUSLY PEOPLE! I dunno if I can do this for two more weeks. Our backroom at work is stacked high with goody baskets. There is fudge, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate covered cherries, more cheese plate, fruit basket (saving grace), and this huge 10 gallon bucket filled to the brim with bags of chips, candy, beef jerky etc.
It’s as if these people think more than 9 people work in my office. But no, there are only 9 of us. For the record at least 3 people will be out of the office this week, leaving all this lovely goodness for 6 people.
And I guess I wouldn’t be so upset about the office goodies if all had gone the way it was supposed to last week. But by Friday night all logical and healthy thoughts and decisions had gone out the window. Just trust me when I say it was bad!
So I have to start this week as a clean slate and hope that I can make better decisions. Like way better.
I can do this.
I have a little mantra that I have written on a post-it note and put in every room of my house & at work.
“COMMIT TO EXCELLENCE EVERYDAY”
I am going to stare at this little post-it every time I even have an inkling to head back to that break room. Because I am SO close to finishing the Shred next week with progress made. And so close to ending 2009 in a deficit!
WISH ME LUCK! 🙂
