Britt1975's Journal, 23 October 2017

Filed under, "if I don't laugh, I'll cry."

Co-worker just included me on an informative email to share that a local restaurant now has Key Lime pie, Cheesecake, and choc chip cookies on their menu.

Also, came back from a trip to refill my water cup to find a full size package of Skittles on my desk. Good thing it wasn't a Snickers, I might have caved. Skittles were immediately re-homed to the break room... where there is banana bread and cinnamon rolls.

Foodapalooza here at my job.

Sorry. :-( Hope you enjoy lots of delicious ...glasses of water, and a good lunch. ----***Rant that probably doesn't belong here: is it ok that companies don't discourage this? I'm opposed to companies imposing health measures like BMI for insurance discounts, or department-wide weight loss contests, or anything fat-shaming. But getting rid of sugary drinks in vending machines and discouraging sweets pushers might result in people bringing non-carb treats enjoyable even for those happily and healthfully eating carbs. When I worked in settings where it was expected to bring cakes on one's own birthday, everyone was happy when I offered to bring savory/protein items instead. (More expensive, but worth it.) /rant ***

T8U9- Keep on ranting - I always make a point at work that we have all these health programs and the organization promotes healthy living yet we have these birthday events with nothing but sugar foods. And, staff meetings are always just bagels and other crapola. It's time organizations start implementing healthier practices - such as options for reduced fat, sugar or lower calories. Let's not make a BIG deal over this - just start introducing OPTIONS instead of everyone laughing over what disease they will get from eating the "desserts" at work. not funny anymore. Again, I am not being a buzzkill - have your sugartower of power donut , just give me an option of a lower sugar cookie!!!!

Stay strong! It's funny the things you notice when your on a diet. We were in at the dealership I noticed so many maybe 15 people raiding the vending machines. Under my breathe don't you know that stuff will kill ya?

Thanks for the support. Tomorrow is our monthly staff meeting... to which we all bring breakfast 'snacks' (staff meeting is from 8am - 12pm) It's always a mass of donuts and danishes but I'm bringing two crustless quiches. Everyone always complains about all the sugary foods... but the next month nothing changes. We'll see how my non-sugar items go over.

In my office, the cakes and stuff come from the skinny gals who don't eat that crap at home but buy it for their spouses or kids to have for dessert once and then take to work. Very hard. Good idea to bring what you need for the breakfast meeting - my friend who lost 65 pounds does that too, and complained to her HR department about all the junk food that they ordered for meetings that she couldn't eat. HR turned around and changed their whole approach.
