haha! My work is the biggest temptation zone I face. Forget the coffe stand with super yummy brownies right downstairs, and you still have the candy, trail mix, and mini-chocolate bars that are always on the filing cabinet. Then there are all the well meaning coworkers who bring in doughnuts, cookies, brownies, etc. Oh, and don't forget all the parent-coworkers selling girlscout cookies and cookie dough and cheesecakes - yes, elementary kids are selling whole cheesecakes now!

It's a mine field!

My office is pretty terrible between birthday cakes and cookies in the kitchen. A while back I decided that I just wasn't going to eat anything free at work (unless it was exceptional in some way). No commercial cheesecake, no sheetcakes from the grocery store, no hershey kisses, etc. This is hard somedays, but actually a real good move for me in terms of cutting out the extra cals that sneak up on you.

Yes, constant barrage. There are only 20 people in the office, but every day, at least one is bound to bring in something homemade and leave it out in the kitchen or bring mini candy bars to a meeting or want to go out to lunch...

umm ... yeah! I work in a real estate office. There's always someone looking to win the favor of the realtors (title companies, insurance companies, mortgage companies, etc.) who brings in free goodies. I'm getting pretty good at ignoring these treats though!

I guess I'm in a really lucky situation! I work in a small office and everyone here is pretty health conscious. We even had a company wide fitness challenge! At staff meetings, yes we do have cakes and brownies, but people know to also get veggies, hummus, water, etc.
