The food trap

May 9th, 2008 at 07:34 pm

I have been warned of the "new worker's spread." There is lots of food at my new work place. We are provided with morning tea on Monday (cookies) and a fruit platter on Wednesdays. The trainer is handing out lollies as rewards and there is a snack machine plus baked goods for sale as a fund raiser. Not only could I easily spend a lot of money - I could get fat.

I went to the supermarket after work today, the 5pm crush is something I've avoided for a long time. I saw someone I knew and she had a deli cooked chicken, some salad greens and a bottle of wine. Her bill came to over nz$30. I asked her if the wine was for a special occasion and she said no, it was just a regular dinner. Guess I'm lucky I can't drink alcohol with my medication.

    I try my hardest to avoid the 5 pm rush at the store--I am always in a hurry, or fretting over the long lines, and I don't pay as much attention to what I am spending. And I always forget my coupons when I am in a rush ;(

    We get a lot of goodies too, if I am not careful I would be as big as a house
