Will power like you’ve never seen

I made a conscious decision not to eat the leftover chocolate cupcakes with white frosting in the conference room. I had one yesterday; they couldn’t possibly taste better today.

I congratulated myself while walking in the rain to my 3 p.m. meeting, thinking I would blog about how strong I was. I got to my meeting, only to discover that it was catered. With brownies, lemon bars, fruit and cheese. I didn’t eat a thing, even though I had one of those brownies at an event two weeks ago, and it was magnificent.

Would have been a little embarrassing if I had loaded up a plate, as it turned out, because although I was invited, the meeting was, unbeknownst to me, a “Staff Appreciation” gathering for another department’s staff.

Am celebrating with a sugar-free pudding cup. 60 calories.
