I was tagged by the great deflabbifier over at Deflabbify yesterday in a new health fitness meme that asks:
What is your biggest health or fitness vice?
That’s an easy question to answer. I love pastries! Donuts, cheese danish, cinnamon rolls, bagels, cookies, toaster strudels, you name it. If it has a flaky crust and a sweet topping, I’ll eat it. In fact, as I write this it is early in the morning and I’m starting to drool.. It’s gonna be tough not to stop at a gas station on the way into work!
One thing that is so tough at my job is the fact that we always have sweets available. One lady’s husband works for a local bakery, and she is always bringing in boxes of donuts and other pastries. Still others at my job love to cook, and are always bringing in the tasty leftovers. If all else fails there is our good friend the vending machine (which has several yummy pastries selected just for me).
I’ve found that if I don’t plan ahead and bring some sort of healthy substitute, more often than not I’ll end up indulging in whatever happens to be there on that day. But if I bring my own healthy snacks with me it’s much easier to resist the temptation to take part in all the high calorie treats. So there it is – tip for the day – pack your lunch, and bring plenty of healthy snacks to help you resist all the yummy eats at the office.
Hmmm, who to tag next? How about:
