Do You Know the Muffin Man?

Why does it seem whenever we are starting to get back "on track" with things in our lives, there are always little timely temptations?

I work at the headquarters for a local grocery store chain....so, yes, there is always food around the office. But in my previous job as a teacher, you better believe sweets were bountiful in the teacher's lounge. Most days it's easy for me to pass up the sweets....some days, not so much.

I was, however, very proud that I passed up the MONSTEROUS bowl of M&M's in the break room yesterday (okay....I had 6), the free cake, the muffins....I could go on. Unfortunately, I'm not the gal who can have "just one cookie" and call it quits. I'm the gal who has one cookie, beats herself up for it, then buys a 10-pack on the way home from work. :-) Maybe one day I will be the "just one cookie" gal. A girl can dream....

The whole idea of sweets and cake at the office ALWAYS reminds me of one of my favorite comedians, Jim Gaffigan. He's a fellow Indiana native, so of course I love him for that, but he's also quite funny. I love what he has to say on the subject of cake. So true!

Miz - LOVE the hot pocket routine!!! I always giggle to myself when I pass the hot pockets in the grocery store now. I will just never look at them the same.

Glad you are a JG fan, too!
