Moderate This!

First of all. It's 5:16 on Monday. I can't even read blogs, or blog properly anymore. I couldn't take my usual 11:00/The View slash Price is Right workout lunch break today. Or, the rest of the week cus I'm training new new girl.

Rest assured. I still for the past two weeks, as with every week even when I attend bootcamp, have been doing my 50 minutes (that's new sorta from 45 min) workouts at lunch time. Five days a week. I do hill intervals, I jog, I climb freaking mountains (which is what I call an 8% incline, I remember when I thought 3% would kill me)

All in all, the stress of work has got me thinking about one thing. Which I can't even describe well enough to do it justice. How badly I want a chocolate donut. Not just any chocolate donut, it has to be a dunkin donut chocolate cake donut with chocolate icing, or a Krispy Kreme chocolate cake glazed donut.

I'm pretty sure that donuts are why I am on a quest to lose 90+ pounds. (also known as only 35lbs more to go people!) At my last job, the guy who did our print work would always bring us donuts when he picked up/dropped off jobs. Not just any donuts. Krispy Kremes. Not just any Krispy Kremes. They were always warm. If you have not experienced a fresh from the frying vat of boiling lard....warm glazed Krispy kreme, you havn't lived.

Of course, I personally preferred the chocolate, so I'd have a warm glazed, and a chocolate. And since there was like 3-4 dozen donuts for 4 people, we shared one dozen with the building, and ate the rest. I can't recall how many I could have in any given day but I could have a lot. And feel like total crap afterwards.

Everything tastes so much better when you don't give in to every desire for it. For instance, 2 weeks ago I had chocolate cake, with buttercream frosting. It felt like I died and went to cake heaven. Oh, I've thought about it. If there were cake heaven, the clouds would be marshmallows. And it would rain nuts, cus I love nuts. (wink) The rivers would be carmel, and the birds would be reese's peanut butter cups bats, that I have never seen before in my life. Since I'm dead, I'll also have a heart made of reese cups since i've seen those at Wal Mart. And, since it is my heaven, I'll have my cats, that don't shed. Otherwise they will have their hair all up in my carmel river. And I don't want any part of that!

Come to think of it, now that I found that reese cup bat. I think that I want to have some reese's cups more than a chocolate donut. I would gain 50lbs in 2 days If I had donuts, and reese cups. I am not good with moderation. I try to have the sugar free versions of things, which are fabulously delicious, but my stomach seems to reject whatever they make it sweet with. In the form of it stinks.

Know something that isnt good in moderation? Sex. That is something you should partake in all you can. Because it burns calories. And if you're lucky....it's also good.

This weekend, the manfriend did cute and thoughtful things like, put washer fluid in my car, fixed my headlight, and took down my trash! My trash? Down the hill of doom and gloom? And put in light bulbs for my outside lights. He's so cute he should be punished. I love when men do manly things for girls! It's totally sweet!

I have enough bad habits that aren't good for my health, so, I guess it's really good that I wasn't born with a sweet tooth. I'll admit, though, I do love cheesecake. It's been years since I've had some.

Sex in moderation sucks, you're right about that.

Krispy Kremes have never appealed to me, I'm not sure why (the glazed ones, that is), but anything chocolate is my downfall. I agree with you, though...you always feel like crap after eating that stuff. So good going down, so bad staying down. ;-)

I can't do moderation either - that is why I never, and I mean never, buy a dozen donuts. I would eat every last one of them. Heck, come to think of it, I rarely buy donuts at all - I just love them sooooooooo much! For me it is regular glazed from CC or sugar jelly donuts from DD. Freaking yum.
