This whole week my members and I have been talking to our food – interviewing it so to speak – to see if it’s worthy of us. Because really, just because something is convenient and available and not originally on your plan, doesn’t mean it’s worthy. Sometimes it is. And I could talk from here til next year about how so and so’s homemade shortbread is worthy, but packaged cookies aren’t.
I finished my last meeting last night and felt really good about it. Then I walk in to my day job and the main office table is COVERED with Dunkin Donuts. It’s not even that APPEALING (unlike the above mentioned shortbread) but there it is. Convenient. In front of me. Easy. And for some reason – tempting. I’ve been having a conversation with myself for 20 minutes about the donuts.
So far I’m winning. Winning, for the record, is NOT having the donuts. Not giving in to something I can get every day if I wanted to. Not giving in to something that isn’t homemade and special.
But why is something that doesn’t even appeal to me tempt me?
I’m not eating the donuts.
This is why I’m a Weight Watcher member first and Leader second.
