Default I Am The Queen Of Will Power!

It's a tiny victory but a funny one!

I HATE Thursdays and Fridays at the school I teach at. Thursdays are staff meeting/treat day and Friday is bannock day. As wonderful as treats and bannock are, they are not good for weight loss! This morning, I packed extra fruit and told myself "Be tough today...it's Thursday!" and then came the dreaded staff meeting.

I thought for a second, before I went in, that if it was a brownie, I might let myself have one. I don't want my plan to be so depriving that I cave and eventually binge. But then I thought that nothing tastes as good as thin feels, and I would only be in heaven for like...15 seconds. AND possibly derail.

So what did I do? Well, I went to the bathroom for a second. The staff bathroom is the ONLY place in the entire school where I have privacy. It is a safe haven from "MISS! MISS! LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!" and other exhausting parts of the school day.

I said - nope. No treat. I walked out into the meeting and BAM! There was not only brownies, but also cinnamon buns, peanut -freaking- brittle, and a myriad of other homemade treats. We don't get most of these in the Arctic so it was quite a display.

One teacher saw me with my celery, got up, and put the tray BESIDE ME, and took away my celery.

AND I didn't budge.

Tra la laaaaaa I had a great day. Hope you did too!!!!!!! Oh, and I have Friday off for a mentorship day- NO BANNOCK!!

Yayy!!! Good job!!! Nothing would have tasted good enough on those trays anyways!!! (That's what I always tell myself!)

I am not a violent person at all but if someone touched my celery I was eating, I'd have probably knocked her out!

So happy for you! Enjoy your day off tomorrow!

Way to go! Good for you, being prepared with your celery, and BOO! to that teacher!

One question- what's bannock? (I pictured a hammock for bananas, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you meant!)

Thanks guys! Ahahahaa I WISH bannock was a banana hammock! It's a traditional Aboriginal grain dish. It's pretty much white flour, sugar and lard.... lol it's pretty devastating!! It is used as breakfast buns and dinner rolls here!

We've all had run ins with food pushers but that is just over the top rude.

But wow on that will power, great job! And a dancing banana in your honor, and in honor of the banana hammock! lol!

I just did a Google Images on bannock and OH MY GOSH! I could never be left alone with that....and I probably wouldn't be able to control myself with others around either! Your will power is powerful. Can you bottle that up and send it to me in California?

Good for you, brownies are very hard for me to resist. I'm shocked someone actually had the nerve to take away your celery, what's up with that?? How rude.

I absolutely LOVE that you had a plan for the situation and stuck to it! I know those can be white knuckle situations, but it feels so good to get through them. Good for you! (I couldn't find the dancing celery stick. So I sent this guy instead.)

Woot! Congratulations for your success in not budging and not giving in even in the face of the really amazing rudeness of that other teacher.

You are a nicer person than I am. I would have picked up the tray and taken it over to where she was and handed it to her and grabbed my celery back.

Although I hate celery, but I would have grabbed it back and smiled politely at her and gone back to my place and eaten the dang celery.

But probably was best that you didn't start anything since you have to work there. But you won a moral victory and stuck to your guns. Huzzah!
