Date #6 – Donut tell me I can’t have donuts.


 Date #6

 Push-ups – 20

DoNut tell me I can’t have donuts.

This will be a short post because it was a short date. 😊

When I was pregnant with my daughter, all I craved was sugary kid food.  I ate so much kid cereal, I’m surprised I didn’t turn into a Fruity Pebble.  (I am however, pretty fruity!)  I also became obsessed with Munchkins.  I was so addicted to those little donut holes from Dunkin Donuts, I had to take routes that didn’t have a Dunkin Donut on the way or else my car would veer itself right through the drive-thru without me knowing.  I’d crush 10 munchkins without even blinking!

It’s no secret that I love donuts. I think they are a little slice of heaven.  Growing up, our church had donut holes set up after every service.  I sat in church trying so hard to pay attention to the sermon I probably needed to hear, but all I could think about were those melt in your mouth donut holes!  I probably should blame my high school rebellion tendencies and hours of detention on donut holes.

I still think about all those donut holes that made Dunkin Donuts’ stock to rise in 2011, but try to keep those sweet treat thoughts to a minimum.

As I left Home Depot this afternoon in search of a flashlight, I found myself in the next parking lot over.  The Dunkin Donut’s drive-thru!  It’s been quite some time since I had some munchkins, so I felt pretty dang excited pulling up to order them.

“May I have 8 munchkins please?”

“They come in 5, 10, 25, 50.”

I debated the 50 count.

“I’ll take 10 please!  Chocolate, Glazed, and Jelly.”

“Anything else?”

“Pumpkin Spice Latte with Almond milk please”  Because I’m on a special date and I’m splurging!

As the drive-thru lady handed me my treats, I couldn’t help but feel the kids inside me yell, “Hurrraayyy gimmie gimmie!”

I crushed 5 of those donut holes before even leaving the parking lot.


Sometimes you gotta just give yourself that moment.  Although eating donuts is not what I want to do to my mind and body, the experience is joyful and makes me smile big.  However, if I used donuts to make me feel good and the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru was my only source of smiling big, I’d be in big trouble.  And that is why I continue on my quest in dating myself!
