Typical day at work, part two

The pictures below are what I see every single day at my job. Our company provides us with free snacks and soda cans every day. I used to have at least two of those snacks each day, plus at least two sodas. I used to feel pretty good about the snacks: “Fig Newtons have fruit!”, “It’s a 100 calorie pack!”, etc. That’s in addition to what used to be my typical bacon, egg & cheese on a roll breakfast, and Chinese or pizza for lunch. My co-workers munch on those snacks all day long in front of me. I haven't even had one since 1/16.

Our company also provides us with single servings cups of cereal. Many days, I eat a single serving of Cheerios with fruit or I will have two hardboiled eggs instead of the cereal. Mid-morning snack is a piece of fruit; lunch is usually turkey and a half a slice of cheese with romaine and light mayo on a whole wheat sandwich thin; afternoon snack is sliced cucumber with white vinegar, salt & pepper and garlic powder. I only drink water, seltzer or unsweetened tea. I’m not even kidding when I say I look forward to my healthy meals and snacks. I don’t feel weighed down and sluggish, but I am way more full with what I eat now, than with what I used to eat. Ironic, right?


  1. Oh woah! It's like the ultimate love/hate relationship, haha. Man those cupcakes look gooooood.

  2. Just today my boss was shoving chocolate chip cookies in my face and getting irritated that I didn't want them.

    Nice job passing them by the last couple months!
