Tastebuds vs. Will Power: 5-0 for this week.

My dinners this week have consisted of pizza, leftover pizza, cereal, (three bowls of) cheetos, and pizza (yup, for a third time…). Couple that “well-rounded” diet with my school diet, and it’s only a matter of time before my principal’s words from my first week of school ring true: Don’t be surprised if you grow here.

Funny thing is, I don’t even really like skittles, but by the end of the day I am rooting around the office looking for anything sweet (the cupcakes and donuts are long gone by then) and skittles just so happen to be the secretary’s secret sweets stash candy of choice. So of course I indulge. Repeatedly.

Needless to say, I’m planning to move this sweets-and-greased-up bod of mine today at a pace that will hopefully off-set at least one of this week’s rash (yet delicious) decisions. To put it plainly, exercise is calling. Luckily the weather is cooperating.

Happy Saturday, y’all! And my apologies for being a little MIA on the blog front this week…I think I’m finally settling in to my new schedule and finding time for things aside from work, food, and sleep during the week…so hopefully I’ll be back up and blogging at a respectable rate from here on out…hopefully.

Ah, the perils of the office candy bowl. One sits a mere ten feet away from my desk, and I have yet to conquer its daily temptations. And mine has Twix bars…that is NOT good for business…

A lovely weekend post–well done, Lis!

sigh. i can’t conquer the temptation of the candy in the alumni office. luckily for me, though, it’s on the third floor. i can always justify a tootsie roll or york peppermint patty with the “i’m burning calories to go get it” routine. unfortunately for me, ten stairs does not burn the calories provided by a handful of tootsie rolls since i cannot eat just one. easter egg peanut butter m&ms have found their way into the office as well this past week. talk about setting one up for failure.

I can always tell the “stress level” of the school by how much of my various candies disappear through the course of a day. It’s quite interesting to watch!

I just want to eat everything in those pictures…
