I started my diet today. Yes, I'm calling it a diet, even though you're supposed to call it a "lifestyle change." Whatever. Semantics.
While I was walking the dog this morning, my husband went and bought a dozen fresh donuts.
I have been longing for a good donut for quite some time, but haven't managed to get one. The donut shops seem to be closed whenever I'm thinking about it.
Anyway, so there they were, all these donuts in one of those brown boxes.
I made oatmeal instead and didn't even open that dumb box.
So, hooray for me.
It would have been way too easy to say, "fine, I'll start tomorrow" but you know? Tomorrow NEVER comes. There's always a good reason to eat something "bad". (And yes, I know. Food is neither good or bad according to the experts, but can we all just drop pretenses and agree that donuts are bad for you if you are fat and trying to lose weight?)
So, this is how you start a diet: Do not eat fresh donuts that appear in your kitchen. Eat oatmeal instead.
