Welcome to month 17 of Club HASAY! Not sure what HASAY is? Read all about it here.
My FIL has been here for the past week and if that’s not a reason to binge eat, I don’t know what is. I could spend this post blabbering on about how I’m fat and tired of being fat but you’ve heard all that. The truth is, I’ve cut back on the sweets and junk food and have been doing a teensy bit better than previous months. It’s a process. Instead, I’m going to tell you why donuts are good for you.
It was a chilly winter afternoon and we were all playing on the swing set. The kids had just finished their healthy snacks when Jamie and I agreed that we were in the mood for some coffee from Dunkin Donuts. And maybe a donut each for good measure. Being the awesome provider I am, I hopped in the car to make it happen.
When I pulled out of the neighborhood, I noticed a small white figure zooming down the busy street. Great, I thought, another dog in need of saving. Jamie and I have an annoying habit of going out of our way to save runaway dogs and return them to their rightful owners. I pulled the car over and got out to lure the lost pup in. The little asshole wasn’t having it, he took off running with me hot on his tail (note: exercise). I even had to go back to the car a few times to drive further since he kept taking off every time I got close.
What the wayward pup didn’t realize is that I chase toddlers for a living so I’m pretty quick at heading after runaways. After a few minutes, the poor guy came closer and I nabbed him. He was actually pretty sweet and didn’t try to bite me like previous lost dogs have done. He was wearing a collar (thank you, responsible dog owners) with his address and phone number so I called his house and brought him home.
Feeling good about my adventures, I continued on in my journey and procured the donuts and coffee. They tasted a little bit sweeter knowing I had gotten a workout in and saved the life of a runaway mutt. And that, my friends, is why having a donut once in awhile can be a good thing.
