Temptations While at Work
I work in healthcare. My office is above the dietary department. I spend most of my day in and around the kitchen, smelling yummy food and baked goods. Yesterday I was getting ready to go to lunch with my coworkers and I noticed there was some leftover chocolate custard. I ate one after my lunch and it was freaking awesome! Its texture was not like a custard. There was kind of a crust on top, then almost a heavy souffle on the top half. The bottom half was custard-like. A few of my coworkers said they liked the flavor, but didn’t like the texture. I liked it ALL. I forgot to mention there was whipped topping on it also. About an hour later I was craving another one. I was trying to talk myself out of it, but my coworkers were telling me to go for it. So I did. I ate another chocolate custard. No biggie. I’ll just run when I get home later. Just before I got ready to leave for the day, I was talking with my boss (about how good the custard was) and the temptation was too much. I ate a THIRD custard. What the hell?? I have to deal with temptations like this almost daily. It could be cookies, pie or mashed potatoes. I usually try to have a little self control, but i must have left it at home yesterday.
I’m happy to report I did not eat any custard today. I steered clear of the fridge. I’m sure if I would have seen it, I would have eaten three more.
Oh, and I did not run when I got home from work on the three custard day. Nor did I run today. Tomorrow’s another day.
