You know, I thought the Great Black and White M&M Invasion of last year was rough, but that has nothing on the Insidious Abandoned Carrot Cake Attack of the past two weeks.
Because we are technically in a crunch period at my company and working 10 am-10 pm most days, we have our dinners brought in by a catering company. Well, there must be some kind of super bargain going on with carrot cake from their suppliers, because these $#!$! folks keep bringing in desserts that are my particular favorites.
We are talking about Key Lime pie and carrot cake with walnuts and raisins.
I can say no to anything else (except for maybe free sushi), but OMG, I love KL pie and carrot cake! There’s always a ton of the stuff left at the end of the night, and my frugal Asian upbringing somehow kicks in and makes me feel BAD about letting food be thrown out, so I wind up Rubbermaiding 4 or 5 slices of cake or pie for my free day!
(I feel bad about chucking egg yolks, too, and I go through a minimum of 36 eggs a WEEK. I know…I can buy egg whites alone, but that conflicts with the Asian cheapskate gene.)
My free days are obscene cake and pie fests now. It’s appalling. I can’t even face the totals on my Diet and Exercise Assistant program. I just log the meals furtively and avoid looking at the total calories at the bottom. 😳
I need to stop assigning human feelings to inanimate, fat-and-sugar laden desserts. They aren’t forlorn, abandoned orphans. They are sugar-bombs just waiting to blow up my thighs and hips to their pre-BFL girth.
Someone please make them stop…please.

The Awful Truth:
1. Didn’t space my meals out very well Sunday…left 6 hours between lunch and dinner due to being out and about with dbf.
1. Did okay on water…
2. Was pretty much on plan Saturday at the Megacon thanks to a huge shaker full of protein shakes.
1. Try out new carrot cake muffin recipe to stave off carrot cake munchies ASAP.
2. Wake up for 7 am cardio every day instead of pushing it off until 8 am.
