Surviving the Office Desserts

25 May

Well I got into the office today and was just bombarded with temptations…

To start: Someone brought in 2 dozen Panera bagels. Honestly, how do you say no to a Panera bagel? I tried – but they looked so delicious… plus I didn’t want them to go bad, right? So… I decided I would just have a “healthy” one and grabbed what I thought was a raisin bagel (Raisins are healthy, right?). Wrong. I bit into it and those little morsels were actually chocolate chips. Oops. Oh well, it was awesome.

"Raisin" Bagel

Later: Someone brought in a home-made double-layered banana cake with chocolate icing… I know this is supposed to be a “healthy living” blog, but I just didn’t have the will-power to pass up cake either. Again, it was awesome.

Thankfully it was BEAUTIFUL outside today – which totally motivated me to workout after work.

It's finally warm 🙂

As per usual, Wednesdays = YMCA for Spinning 🙂

    Haha, a lotttt of healthy living bloggers still eat dessert, and often! I definitely do. 🙂 The bagel looks AMAZING; I can’t even imagine how good the cake was!

      haha Yeah – dessert is important… I’m just not entirely convinced I needed the bagel and cake within an hour of each other.
