Everyone knows that the holiday season is not the right time to be trying to loose weight. Just to make you're not tempted to diet, you might consider doing a 12 lbs 'til Christmas goodie sharing at work.
This idea was introduced to me by some of the ladies that I work with. We're doing this at my company right now and it's been fabulous! Everyone seems to be willing to take their turn at bringing in goodies and we all love having something yummy to look forward to each moring!
- Make a daily sign-up sheet that covers two weeks (more or less days are fine) until Christmas. The sign-up sheet should have dates listed, as well as sections for names & items being brought. If you want a sample copy, leave me your email address and I'll email you one.
- Send out an email to all your co-workers asking for particaption. Here's what you might say in the email:
Please join us in our 12 lbs 'til Christmas goodie sharing efforts. For the next two weeks, leading up to Christmas, we're asking two people per day to sign up to bring goodies for everyone in the office. You can bring cakes, cookies, breads, or any other baked goods that you like. These goodies can be homemade or purchased.
Sign up sheets can be found taped to the door at the main entrance.
Be sure to stop by the breakroom each morning to see what scrumptous goodies are waiting to tantalize your taste buds! First come, first serve!
Here at my office, we've talked about extending this after Christmas, but dropping it down from a daily offering to just doing it on Fridays. No dieting for our group! :)
