National Doughnut Day

So I feel bad, I didn't do that 60 minute workout I said I was going to do yesterday, but I did a long one, and it was close to a 60 minute workout, and included a lot of burpees, Kettle Bell Snatches and Biking, so all in all I'm not upset.

I'm sure you noticed on Social Media of all sorts that it's National Doughnut Day, which in my opinion is the 2nd worst day of the year (for those on a diet) only to National Ice Cream Day. The only way this beats that, is that every doughnut shop in the world gives out a free doughnut, so you could theoretically eat tons and tons of doughnuts for the price of gas money if you really wanted to try that out. If you did that, shoot me a message (robbie@bigredexpresspodcast.com) and I'll send you a special gift.

I love doughnuts, I crave doughnuts everyday of my life. While I write this post, I am probably thinking thoughts of doughnuts, but I know I cannot give in to the temptation. It's a pastry that has been around arguably since the 19th century and has graced kitchens, restaurants, and stores for many of years. With hundreds of combinations: Sprinkles with icing, plain, glazed, maple bacon, chocolate, etc. (sorry I'm not helping this issue, but there is a point I promise) The point, Doughnuts are one of the most amazing snacks EVER.

So this raises the question, if you are on a diet and watching what you are putting into your body, what happens when you really want a doughnut? This is what I do, I sit down and ask myself is the 30 seconds it takes for me to eat the doughnut going to be worth the satisfaction? Most of the time it's no and I move on and try to figure out what to eat in place of the doughnut. That is my challenge, sit down and ask yourself that, it won't kill you every once in a while to have a doughnut, but as everyone knows it's hard to just have one. Believe it or not, eating fruit is just as good and 100x healthier than a doughnut.

What I'm trying to say here, is you don't NEED a doughnut, you WANT a doughnut. Save it for your "cheat period" (which I will address on a later blog down the road), or buy a doughnut and give it to someone who wants it but doesn't care about what they put in their body at that moment.

If you did get a doughnut, comment below and let us know!

Until next time, Have a great weekend!
