  • Gah! Office CAKE!!

    One of the women in my office got married. Today, we had cake. First thing.

    Yes, I ate a peice. A verty small one. Social pressures. Oh well. I'll live.

    Probably broke 150 on carbs though.

    Don't worry about it, and use it as a lesson. Next time maybe choose to reward yourself with a primal treat instead if you can control the urge to indulge in the "bad stuff". One day of going over your carb goal will not hurt you...
    Regret/stress will probably be the worst affect on your body anyways.

      I didn't even want the cake. It's the people who push it I have trouble staying away from. Cake bad. Grok no eat cake.

      I'm sure that over the long term, especialy with my usual under 75 carb count, it doesn't matter.

        Meh,, just having a bite/slice won't do you much harm. Last time I had generic cake I was kind of grossed out. Frosting on the other hand...

          Next time you are faced with office treats like that, just think that you have no idea who all has handled them. The last person to touch the cake could have been someone who didn't wash their hands after using the bathroom or it could have been sneezed on or coughed on.

            Was it actual wedding cake? Wedding cake can cause women to lose all interest in sex, forget about personal hygiene an completely let themselves go. Fortunately, it's really just the bride that gets infected though.

              I just live my life and do the best I can. After 9 months of being Primal I am able to resist something I don't want office pressure or not. If I am going to eat something "bad" I make darn sure it is worth it to me. Just the act of having to think about it and not just shoving it in my mouth shows I am making better choices as I am aware of what I eat.

              Dont beat yourself up about it. Everyday is a new day and a fresh start.

                i hate cake so it's no temptation to me. However, i did fall prey to an open bag of blue corn tortilla chips. Yum! Naughty naughty. Usually i'm stronger than that...

                  Small piece of cake pushed you over 150g/day in the morning? How "small" was it? Joking aside, if you had the cake then don't eat anything else carby to balance it out for the day. No big deal. And if you really feel too guilty about it then have yourself a nice physical workout at the end of the day.

                  Social pressure can be an issue when it comes to refusing certain foods. I hate cakes but sometimes I'm put in a position where I can't refuse so I accept the piece, eat one or two bites, and then dispose of it when no one's looking.

                    I worked with someone who said, and still maintains that the first and second bites were the best it gets. Bites after that were not necessary.

                      I was the agent of destruction in my office today.

                      Some little girls in my neighborhood were selling cookies to raise money for their school or something so I bought some to be nice. They arrived last night... I baked all 48 of them... ate 2... put the rest in a giant zip lock bag... and deposited them on the break room counter.

                      They have been hit HARD by my co-workers.

                        On the plus side, I dodged the office pizza party, and the "lets all order chinese food Monday" idea that went around today.

                        I think they're jealous and trying to sabatoge me. :P

                          I have to contend with the Halloween Treat Table scheduled for Monday-a table full of sugar and flour that I will likely have to contribute to. I'm thinking about making some little caramel apples with roasted pumpkin seeds. The caramel = a lot of sugar, but also butter and cream. I may also try my hand at baking a primal treat, which I have been avoiding so far.

                            Well as long as we are confessing I bought one of those 52 oz pumpkin pies from Costco on Saturday. I did not eat any of the crust, just the pie part, but over a 4 day period I ate about 70% of it. My biggest cheat in months. I love pumpkin pie.

                              :O So true, that's one of those things in life that you won't notice until someone points it out.

                              It's a win-win-win situation. Eat the cake, don't over eat it, make the celebrant happy.
