Imagine this: You are at the office, someone offers you a piece of birthday cake, retirement cake, baby shower cake, leftover brownies from the corporate luncheon. What do you say? (Hint: NOT, Thank you!) How are you going to make it through the day, navigate the dangerous terrain called “Office” without going “Hog Office Wild?”
Between the “celebratory foods” and the ubiquitous bowls of candy and piles of cookies, as well as the vending machines, strategically placed throughout the office, seriously Tushkateers, Our Lady Devotees and the rest of y’all … how are you going to stick to the plan without losing your mind!
What to do? 5 Tips : Keep Healthy & Sane in the Office …
… a.k.a. How to Lose Weight w.Out Losing Your Mind
1. Stock Your Office … with the RIGHT STUFF! If there’s a refrigerator/freezer and a microwave, you are set! Here are a few foods that you can buy, stock, and eat! Say NO to Office Food; Say YES to your health!!!
Suggested List of Foods to Keep on Hand in the OFFICE:
Hard Boiled Eggs
94% Fat-Free Microwavable Popcorn
Raw Vegetables and plenty of them
Fresh Fruit and some more fresh fruit
Seltzer / Water
2. Eat Breakfast! Preferably, before you arrive at the scene!
If you are hungry, you are much more likely to lose control. Have a happy breakfast each morning. Make it a part of your daily ritual.
3. Eat Lunch!
Take at least 20 minutes to a half hour (if not the full hour) to get away from your desk and have lunch. Take a break and breathe. If ordering out is a problem, brown bag it. Be prepared!
4. Just Say “No!”
If the food pusher is still pushing sheet cake – insisting that you have just one piece for this special occasion, just say NO, with conviction. “NO!”
5. Office Food Labels
If you are tired of people eating your food (Truly annoying, isn’t it? They’re not even watching their weight but their eating your food!!!), then make labels that spelled it out loud n’ clear. “Touch my food, mister, and you are in big trouble.” “Don’t mess with me!” And then peel and stick ‘em on your brown bag lunch!
Spread the word … not the icing!
