The girl who deserved donuts and didn't buy them.

I decided to walk down town today. It was a beautiful day and I had a few things to get and so decided to pick up the LBD's lead and take him for a walk.

I walked the 30 minutes into town, left the LBD tied up under a tree, then walked around some shops. Bought two reams of paper and put them in my backpack, picked up the LBD and came home again.

As I left the shopping centre I had to walk past Donut King.

I was tempted.

I didn't stop and buy any.

I felt good about that decision.

But two reems of paper are heavy, and I was struggling for the last little bit of the walk home.

I deserved those donuts, but the chance I regret not buying them?

... Approximately None!

Jen, no one deserves to be overweight. Think of different rewards than food for your great efforts!

Good going Jen, you're inspiring me. I too shall have no donuts.

Oh. Actually I don't really like them. Maybe I am inspired to go and have no chocolate or something :) Thanks for being an inspiration.

Well done. Doughnuts are yuck.

I would have walked past Donut King too. Unfortunately, I would have walked straight past there and into Krispy Kreme instead...
