Sunday Morning Donut Run

17.365_donuts

Yep, that's right, it was a totally different kind of run today. But hey, sometimes it's just gotta be all about the sweet stuff. Why is that? What is it about our physiology that makes us have such a strong desire to put something into our bodies that is so obviously not good for us?

Don't get me wrong ... I love me some donuts. But dang it, I'm supposed to be trying to lose weight, and get in shape while I'm here. And having to walk right past several big bins of tasty treats every morning certainly isn't making it easy.

Oh well, if that ever turns out to be the biggest challenge I face on any given day, then I think it's safe to say that life is pretty darn good. ;-)

p.s. I picked these up primarily with the intention of taking a picture ... but eventually ended up eating that chocolate one.

  3. Very tempting. I think I am going to have to go off to the shop.

    What is it about our physiology that makes us like stuff that is bad for us? Well our bodies need sugar - it is just that processed sugar isn't exactly the healthiest form of it. That, and lots of conditioning we receive from a very young age to like sugar.

    Still though (as long as you are not a diabetic) what is the harm in eating something sweet now and then?

  4. Hi Joseph,

    I definitely take that attitude about sweets ... no harm ... as long as it's not the majority of your diet. :-)
