Today is Donut Day at work. Every Friday one guy brings in Donuts and they just sit there in the kitchen for me to see (and smell) every time I refill my water bottle or go get food (which equals about 314 times a day!). I am actually not feeling donuts today, but since I have been craving a cookie I might go get one.
So I left some room in my breakfast calories for a Friday treat This way I can enjoy a goodie guilt free!
After an easy 5 miles this morning I made oatmeal with a banana, almond milk and cinnamon. I also ate a few handfuls of cereal as I was preparing it. I left out the usual nut butter though, so I don’t know how long this is going to keep me full. I have realized that fat with breakfast is the key to staying full for me.As I went to grab my lunch this morning I told Ben, “Look at how much food I take to work…and I wonder why I’m fat.” I was kinda joking with the fat comment, but seriously this is my lunch bag:Question: Do you have Donut Day at work? How do you handle it?
My answer: I don’t think Donuts are the devil, so I figure a donut now and then won’t kill me. I might start making Friday morning breakfasts a little more special with a bagel or muffin or something. This way I am eating what I want and not grabbing a donut just because I feel deprived.
