SPINACH LASAGNA ROLL UPS
The Donut Effect. There’s a little something I like to call the “Donut Effect”.
I eat pretty healthy most of the time. I feel like I’m always trying to convince you guys of that since you’ve seen what I post on here, but I really do.
Don’t get me wrong…I treat myself everyday to a little something.
But when I’ve been really watching it for a while I inevitably break down and indulge in something sweet…like a donut.
So good! So I think “Wow that was so good and I didn’t even gain any weight. I actually lost 2 pounds.”
So the next day, I eat four cookies. That probably won’t affect me at all either since the donut didn’t so I won’t even bother weighing myself today.
And even if I did gain weight, I lost weight yesterday so it’s all good.
The next day it’s brownies…but just half a pan…
From there, it’s pretty much a downward spiral.
