Tim Tam Tuesdays

Postby Kimmie » Tue Feb 05, 2008 2:01 pm

Every Tuesday the postgrads at my school (plus some random Honours students and vacation scholars etc) have a social event, which includes coffee/tea and Tim Tams! Since we are the School of IT, you can imagine many in the group are guys, so they eat something like 3 to 6 (SIX!!!!) Tim Tams.

My pledge is that I will *go* to this event (it's a welcome break in the afternoon, and I like the social aspect of the gathering) but I won't eat any of the Tim Tams. Not one! :) I guess I will renew this pledge next week, but it will be my last week at Uni (I start my first full time job on the 25th!).

I can do it! "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" or something. :P

Success! I had a bottle of water instead...

At the end of the event, I actually (casually) asked everyone how many Tim Tams they had had. The guys all said they had no idea, but definitely more than three or four, and the girls refrained from answering. Interesting! The scientist in me wants to conduct a study on it...

I actually find it's easier to have none then just have one and stop! Once you get the taste of chocolate in your mouth, it's like a flood gate! (Or maybe that's just me :P)

def not just you!! we have morning teas at my work every tuesday & if i have something it makes me want more - the muffins are cut into quarters & it's so easy to eat 2 or 3 pieces once you've had 1!

nice work on resisting :)

OK, I'm renewing my pledge! This will be my last TTT, but since I'm going to be working very bloody late tonight I've decided to be naughty (within points), and I'm going to have one (1) Tim Tam! Only!

:D

Yeah, I stopped at one. I think it was only this pledge that did it! lol

I still feel guilty... :? Plus I over ate at dinner. Too much healthy food is still too much food. *sigh*

I know its not a tim tam but seeing they have Coffee/Tea as well you could always take a Jarrah Hot Choc Sachet with you for a choc fix to sip on while you are there. They are yummy and only 40 cals per sachet!
