Assault & Fattery

Today I was assaulted and temped from all sides by fatty and unhealthy food!

With a 2pm doctor's appointment, the plan was to leave work at 1:15, grab a grilled chicken sandwich from Wendy's, and eat it on the way.  Sadly, I didn't get out until 1:30 and made it to the doctor just in time for my 2pm appointment . . . which didn't happen until 2:30pm and lasted way longer than it should have.

After FINALLY getting everything taken care of, I headed back to work but not before stopping at Speedway for gas.  Considering I was STARVING before I was late getting out of work, I was ravenous after my appointment which made Speedway's sign for cookies so tempting.  That was assault #1.

The next assault happened in downtown Powel where I was stopped by not 1 but 2 trains in front of the place that makes cupcakes and cake pops.  Oooooohhhhh . . . assault #2 fended off successfully!

Next up - cheese and bacon!  While turning into Wendy's I couldn't help but be assaulted by #3 - the triple cheese and bacon yumminess at Arby's.  It looked so much better than a boring grilled chicken sandwich and baked potato I was about to order.  It takes strength beyond imagination for me to defend against an assault like cheese and bacon!

After staying strong through 3 assaults and ordering my grilled chicken sandwich and baked potato, you would think the universe was done with torturing me.  I say, "Nay, nay!"  While barreling down the road, I reached into my bag for my sandwich and felt . . . a french fry.  Instead of a baked potato, I was given fries!  I held my breathe, pulled out my sandwich, cinched the bag up tight, and put it as far away from me as possible.  As soon as I got back to work, I gave the fries to my coworkers.

It really is a great feeling to succeed and resist temptation.
