Today I came head-to-head with my nemesis... donuts... Have I mentioned my love for donuts before? They are everything to me. They are the perfect combination of sweet and savory, fried and frosted. They are heaven here on earth. I don't care the flavor, size or topping. I love them all. In fact, my stomach is growling right now just thinking about it.
I was feeling pretty good and confident this morning when I woke up. I wasn't as ravenously hungry as I was yesterday, and I was starting to get used to the routine (if a little sick of it). I had some meetings this morning and didn't manage to get to the office until the early afternoon. I walked into the kitchen area to make my shake and on the way spotted the one thing that has the power to undo me. A box of donuts.
It took every ounce of willpower I had to not eat one of them (and I didn't) but don't ever doubt that I didn't think about them all afternoon. They consumed my brain, and were all I could talk or think about for the rest of the afternoon.
Now that I'm removed from the offending donut situation, I'm feeling slightly better and not feeling so obsessive. However, I am feeling like I'm ready for this to be over. While I know this is helping me lose weight and reset my cravings, I do miss variety in my diet. But, I only have one day left (did you hear that, one day!!) so I'm going to hold strong and make it through to the end.
