I think I might scream...

Postby emmaline » Wed Mar 05, 2008 3:17 pm

Sorry I just need to vent.
Two months ago I started working in a media agency... and not one single day has gone by without reps bringing in giant chocolate freckles, endless cupcakes, mud-cakes, chocolate cakes, chinese takeaway lunches, pasta lunches, pizzas, kit-kats. The list goes on...
I can't take it anymore!
The food smells sooooooo good and in the whole time I've been here I've only had one cupcake...
It's really pushing my willpower!

Oh no!!
That really sucks! Tell them to bring a fruit platter instead....or a skipping rope!
Gosh, you're doing SO well to have only had a cupcake!! :shock:

The bosses son came into work this afternoon with 3 20 piece buckets of kfc for everyone to share.

I don't actually like the taste of kfc, is too greasy for me, always has been, but it smells sensational, and the lunchroom is right next to my office. I have drool forming on my desk.

Your willpower is AMAZING! Well done on not giving in. How about bringing a healthy snack to work to have while everyone else is having the yucky junk food?
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!

Yeah good idea!
That way I don't feel like I'm going without so much
Today I went and bought a punnet of strawberries while they chowed down on their Chinese takeaway. It smelt so good!
I was awfully naughty to have the cupcake but I was at the reception that the rep bought it specifically out to me... and it seemed like a waste... Haha I can justify anything.

Thanks for your kind words guys!
It makes it all worthwhile because I tend to cop a bit for eating so healthily here.

I find it kinda easy to say no to food from other people... but hard to say no to myself
So it's easy to say no in a social situation, but I find when I'm alone I can't battle with myself so well!

You are doing really well resisting all those temptations! Anytime you find yourself weakening just think about how many extra calories are in those things and remind yourself how hard you'd have to work to burn them off :mrgreen: Works for me when I have to stock the chip machine and shuffle the chocolates in the games machine too! Really easy to eat but man I hate the working it off part enough to resist!

Your a media planner/buyer? I work in media and i get bombarded with that kinda stuff... and then there are the endless business lunches and dinners!

Maybe say to yourself once a week I can have a treat like that! Makes sure you have plenty ofhealthy snacks to get you through it!

Wow you have a super willpower!! I would have given into to more than just 1 cupcake by now.
Well done though on saying no & I think having healthy snacks on hand will help during those testing times.

Keep up the good work!!! :mrgreen:

One of the staff had a birthday yesterday and brought in a divine looking chocolate mousse type cake thingie with eclairs on top - hmmmm! And hubby, who works with me, scoffed his portion right under my nose, however, I do bake diet muffins and cakes from the GI Diet book and so I came armed with my favourite fruit cake. As long as I was eating something to compensate, I didn't mind so much!!! Why don't you bake some weightwatchers or GI cookies and cakes and bring them as snacks so you don't feel so deprived?

Yup!
I work in media buying at the moment. And there are crazy amounts of food and lunches!
I don't know how any people keep their figures here!
And SOO much alcohol.

I just got some not so great news and I'm feeling a bit blue...
And now someone from BRW magazine is bringing around meat pies and sausage rolls with tomato sauce!
I can smell them everywhere!
Of course I said no, but I can still regret it.
oh boyyyyyyyyy food is my emotional crux....
Like I'm not even hungry but all I wanna do is stuff my gob!

The amount of wine/beer people go through here is amazing!

Ughhh the receptionist just bought in about 15 bags of chips and other goodies for this afternoon
Plus there are multiple birthday cakes ane booze floating around the office today!
I've decided I'll keep writing what food freebies we are getting here so I can kinda remind myself that I am doing a good job at resisting it all
And then I'll be able to look back and see all the weight I COULD have put on.
