Mmmmm… donuts. Oh, how I love thee.
You guys know that I’m not one to turn down a donut– I practically lived off the chocolate cake ones from Dunkin’ Donuts when I worked at HSPH— but I’m having dinner and drinks out with friends tonight, so I wanted to save my splurge for later. I could smell these babies from my desk, so it was a serious test of my willpower to turn them down!
Do you have trouble turning down the donuts at work? Check out these tips from CNC readers for Avoiding Office Temptations. This post is sort of old-school. I wrote it back in April 2008!
Taking the wonderful advice of my readers, I made myself a mug of Ear Grey tea and sipped slowly.
The first part of my lunch today was a PB & J on potato bread + an apple.
The second half of lunch was exactly the same as this morning’s breakfast. It’s probably wasn’t the most balanced option, but I could not stop thinking about that pomegranate pumpkin sauce! (I know, I’m weird!)
After work, I stopped to buy Murphy a his first doggie bed! 😀
I’m not sure he’s quite ready for one yet– since he initially chewed it to death– but we’ll try again tonight when he’s more tired.
Also, check out the Healthy Runner’s NuVal Story. She drove 50 miles to see what NuVal was all about! She rules!!!
You guys may remember my friend Jon from his stand-up comedy or his old foodie blog, Food Fight. He recently got a new job working for a website called Tauntr.com. It’s a sports satire website (sort of like the Onion, only with sports news), where he can follow his passions: graphic design, comedy (writing funny headlines), and making videos. It’s great to see Jon finally doing something he enjoys. Jon asked that I give him a shout out on my blog, and he’s a good friend of mine (he was even in my wedding), so I figured I might as well help him out!
Even if you’re not really into sports, maybe you have some friends that might like the website. Jon is a pretty funny guy, so I hopefully it will take off. Otherwise, he’ll be back to selling luggage online for the rest of his life. But hopefully not. 😉
