Here’s the thing: On any given day, this newsroom is stacked with sweets. Staff members either bring it or someone from the community sends it in and don’t forget about News7 Weekend Dinner left-overs.
Also, we have birthday parties and goodbye parties for departing colleagues and before you know it…we’re all 5lbs heavier. There’s only so much willpower to go around.
And let’s face it… News can be a stressful business. We have deadlines everyday!
As journalists, we see things we don’t always air on tv…and emotions in this newsroom at anytime can explode. Most of us — guilty by profession — are emotional eaters!
Before you know it, it’ll be the holiday’s and that means even more sweets.
I’m telling you, cookies, cake, pizza, chips, oh yea and chocolate, they are truly my weakness — a guaranteed way into my heart ha ha!
