Fighting a Krispy Creme Donut

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

My daughter walked in last night about 8pm with a especially large bag. I looked at her and the bag incredulously...it was a krispy creme donuts bag with two large boxes of doughnuts. From where I was sitting, it looked like dozens. I shrieked, " I don't believe it! Are those krispy cremes? You must be kidding"! I finally calmed down when she explained that they belonged to both she and Morris, her friend. I peeked in the boxes and started to droll and fantasize about each and every one; the glazed, the raspberry filled, my favorite, the chocolate glazed creme filled, the chocolate cake. As I have raised her, she offered me donuts. Okay, I said, I'll get a couple and put one away in the freezer, and I'll eat one with my coffee in the morning.
Well, it's morning and I'm checking the calorie content, along with the fat, carbs, and sugar in this decadent piece. No, lets retract...I haven't just checked it, I'm agonizing over how I can possibly eat this donut, the raspberry filled one. I can't possibly eat this; 350 calories, 36 g.carbs, 18 g. sugar 9 . I don't even remember the fat grams.! Okay, maybe if I eat half...only 175 calories, 18 carbs, 9 sugars. With a cup of coffee it's about 241 for breakfast. nutritionally zero, then I have to figure out the rest of my day to compensate nutritionally and calorically for this moment of exquisite pleasure.
Am I up to it? I have worked so hard. Do I want to even introduce the taste of a donut into my palette and my psyche? So much sugar!
Well, here's the deal. I'm going to eat one half of a raspberry filled krispy creme donut and put the other in the freezer. If I don't eat it, I will think about it all day and this is my day at home when I get chores done and catch up on everything. Not the best day to hang around the house when you have these kinds of treats. So, I'm going to eat it, enjoy every morsel and "average" the calories, sugar, fat and carbs, in my whole day!

    :) If you're gonna eat a donuts, definitely enjoy every mouthful! I read somewhere that we get the most enjoyment out of the first TWO bites. I've been experimenting with that this christmas. For me I found that it was mostly true, much to my surprise.-- the bites after the first two were more habit than craving. So I had two bites of everything this christmas that I had been terrified of (all those starchy and sweet things) .... no weight loss, but no weight gain, so I'll take it. Interesting being so much more aware of my food reaction. Anyway, we gotta get back on track to lose! I've had my share of EVERYTHING this christmas, now lets go hit the weights!
