Zero Tolerance for Donuts

The group I work in at Expedia holds a "donut day" every Wednesday. What this means is that every Wednesday, somebody in the group brings in 2 dozen donuts to share. Responsibility for the greasy treats rotates around the group. I decided about a year ago that I would not participate in eating the donuts. Previously, I'd try to restrain myself to eating a half.

The remarkable thing about my new decision (and what makes it blog-worthy) is how much easier it is now. There's no mental stress, no decisions, no angst about should I eat a half or a quarter. Nothing. I just set zero as the tolerance level, and haven't had a problem with that.

Too bad eating as a whole can't be like that.
