I try to live my life by the motto, "Moderation in all things, including moderation."
This morning when a couple of boxes of doughnuts showed up in the lounge with a sign that read FREE in front of them I weighed my options. Doughnuts aren't something I eat every day. I mean, I'm the kind of person that gets perfect stats on their health assessment.
No really. I did. I went yesterday and every single number was in the optimal range. The guy even had to look up a formula for calculating my LDL because my triglycerides were lower than the range that works in the machine's formula.
I'm crediting my moderation mentality.
But back to those doughnuts. I saw them and thought of this page from my Illustrated Discovery Journal.
Doughnuts are the sort of little indulgence that makes life fun. I had a chocolate glazed one with a vanilla pudding center. It was out of this world good. I'd have taken a picture, but I devoured it before I thought about it.
I went back after lunch and there was a whole box left. It took every bit of self control I had not to have another.
There you go.
Eat well in general and have a chocolate covered doughnut every once in a while. Just don't eat two.
