Indulgence, in moderation is good. Every Monday morning as I head into work I stop off on my way and pick up a chocolate old fashion donut. Nothing starts the week off better than that. Could I have a donut every morning? Other than the fact that would eventually contribute to Insulin Thursday? Of course I could. But it would take something away from the enjoyment I get out of that moment, which is a mixture of anticipation and satisfaction from remaining disciplined enough not to scarf down multiple donuts every week.
Satirical writing is my calorie-free indulgence that allows me to have multiple helpings.
What’s your DonutMonday?
