Counteracting the Candy Jar with the Cherry Tomato Bowl!

Thursday, September 04, 2014

At work, my desk directly faces a co-workers candy jar. Right now, it's filled to the top with plain and peanut M&Ms, some Reese Peanut Butter Cups and who knows what else. It really doesn't bother me as much any more (I used to grab a hand full several times a day....now, I haven't touched it in 3 months!)

Part of my motivation is tracking. I hate to track stuff like that, but I've promised to track everything I eat. Another motivation is that another co-worker never washes her hands, and has her hands in the jar. Just the "ick" factor is a good motivator!

Today I walked to the bank to make the work deposit, and passed by the farmer's market. All organic, delicious veggies and fruit, and ranked nationally as one of the best. I picked up two of the most delicious quarts of little cherry tomatoes. Yes, I've tracked them, and yes, they are on display at my desk!

Have a healthy day!

    The mental image of reaching into a candy jar after someone who doesn't wash their hands has turned me off from candy for life. THANKS!
