What to Bring to a Potluck?

'Tis the season to be thankful, shop 'til you drop, and oh yeah, do the potluck at work.  So, what do you do?  What do you do when you're trying to lose weight and everyone brings stuff like fudge, candy, cake, etc., etc., etc.  Skip it and get the evil eye?  Join in all the unhealthy foods people bring?  Participate with something moderately healthy and help yourself to a tiny bit of everything?

I heard there will be some meats and beans and such, so all is not lost.  Last potluck, I did cucumber sandwiches which actually went over surprisingly well.  This year, I was a bit blind-sided and had to come up with something fast.  I picked quick, easy, and cheap - Kings Hawaiian Dinner rolls.  I'll just use whatever meat is brought and throw together a couple yummy sliders, add some beans and a tiny dessert and I'll be set.  If there's a salad, more the better!  Hopefully, no evil eye on being cheap, quick and easy.  =P

I've been getting to sleep later and later this week and I'm feeling it.  I could've hit the hay as soon as I got home from work today.  But I didn't.  However, I also didn't get the whole workout in either.

Here's what I did do...
Bike at home:  40 minutes including 5 minute cool down /  7 miles / level 6 / 178 calories
Swim at gym:  40 minutes of freestyle and backstroke

What I missed:
Strength training:  Back, Biceps & Legs

Ah well, I didn't feel like doing any of it, but I'm glad I decided to do something.  Something trumps nothing every time.


  1. I like your pot luck plan! There have been so many treats in my office this past week, it's not even funny, but I am just pretending they aren't there!

    Great job getting some exercise in too!

    1. Thanks! Plan executed successfully. But there was this one pie... ughhh, I had the tiniest little sliver, with whip cream... mmmmm
