Office Party Temptation

There in the middle of my giggling coworkers stood the enemy, the white round table covered with soft bagels, all kinds of creamy cheese, sugary sweet donuts and berry filled Danishes.  I stared at the table as I poured my cup of black coffee and listened to my colleague as she describe how her culture celebrates the birth of a new family member. Sadly, I missed part of the story as I searched all of my brain for a reason to delight my taste buds with one of these belly toxic treats. To be honest, had I not started this blog I would have quickly tossed a sugar coated, berry filled donut down the hatch, then quickly regretted it ten minutes later as I sat in a budget meeting with a cramped belly and sweaty brow. But I did not, I was able to focus on the graphs and numbers.. kinda 😉  So… thank you for being here and helping me stay true on my journey. Yes, Point one for Maren, I did not eat that doughnut, bagel or even a “taste” of the berry filling.  Yee haw!
