My life as journaled

Because I'm boring like that

Walking + junk food = ??

Couldn't muster up the energy to brave the outdoors before I ate lunch - but afterwards, I was feeling a bit better, but still hungry (and craving chocolate). Solution: walking to the local Dunkin Donuts :)

15 minutes of walking: good
hot chocolate and cookie: bad

By the way, DD cookies are much larger than I thought they'd be. Hopefully still better than a donut would be, though.

Oh oh! I bet the cookie is worse. Cookie is dense carbs and fat while the donut is fluffy carbs and fat.

Checking the webite a Jelly Donut has 270 calories, a Chocolate has 230, while a Chocolare chunk cookie has 540!

My fix: I love Fiber One bars! They have 9g of fiber, taste awesome and are only 140 calories. They make for a healthy snack. I also buy dole fruit cups and Trader Joe's cereal bars. Its easy to fight a bad craving when you have something healthy that tastes great at your finger tips.

Most of the time, I use fruit or yogurt as a healthy snack - but I really wanted something dense and chocolatey. I figured walking to DD would be a better option than buying a candy bar from the vending machine.

It's hard for me to strike a balance between "snacks that taste great" and "snacks I won't eat when I don't need to" - if they're too tasty, my willpower fails to keep me from grazing. :(
