Day 224: Free Food is Costly

This time of year is always stressful, wonderful, and overflowing with food. Today was no exception.

I was offered free pizza, cupcakes, rice krispie treats, all kinds of different cookies, candy, and sodas ALL DAY LONG at work today. Talk about temptations! I hate to say it, but I said yes to one slice of pepperoni pizza and, 1 rice krispie treat, and 1 1/2 cupcake. Oh, regrets. I've got a few, but then again, too few to mention....

Ok, no more quoting Paul Anka/Frank Sinatra, I promise. Well, maybe.

Thanks to all the rain we had today, my walk did not happen...boo. I hope the weather lets me go for my walk tomorrow! 

Later in the afternoon, I attended an on campus event where there were even MORE free goodies available. (This was where I ate the 1/2 cupcake.) Ok, really, it was 1 cupcake, but it was a mini one, so I call it 1/2. It was a great little gathering for students, faculty, and staff's families to celebrate the upcoming holidays! There was cookie decorating, face painting, present wrapping, musical chairs, ornament making, and writing letters for Santa!

I made LIT cookies!
And I didn't eat them! =D
I was supposed to just take pics,
but I couldn't help but want to join the fun!
She wanted a pink bow!
When I got off of work, I felt sluggish, and like my entire mouth tasted like it was coated with sugar. I gulped a ton of water, and I hit the Jillian Michaels Level 2 Shred workout HARD.

I feel better already! You know you did something right when the sweat is dripping off your elbows.

So lesson learned today... Just because it's THERE doesn't mean you have to eat it. It makes you feel, for lack of a better term, icky.
