By pure coincidence (and mainly fatness) I ended up buying myself some donuts today, to then find out it is national donut day (in the US)..regardless of this only being a US national thing, it should be celebrated worldwide, & it made my donut eating a bit more guilt free. Today = Anxiety free day! … Continue reading Day 5: Happy National Donut Day!
