Birthday Cake In The Office...Again!

How do you stay motivated to not eat so much junk food when it's literally brought to your office all the time? It seems like we have a birthday like every single week now!

I know what you mean, Avocado!! This was a constant problem at the last place I worked at. I managed to get around it most of the time by bringing my lunch with me everyday and packing a healthy treat that I felt would be comparable to the cake or cookies that others were always bringing in.

I just look at the people that are running to the food table. If they are overweight, I tell myself that they most certainly do not need that cake and neither do I. If they are thin, I'll think "If you were thin like that, then you could afford to eat some cake."

This used to happen all the time where I worked. Sometimes I would have some cake and other times I would try not to think about it and have a healthy snack instead. People then started bringing grapes in for the people who were we being good
