Girl Scout Cookies
Thursday, February 17, 2011
OK, so...I have 2 boxes of girl scout cookies sitting on my kitchen counter. UNOPENED, as of yet. Funny thing is, I didn't even order them. What's even funnier is that I got them from my DAD.
If you knew my Dad, you would laugh because he always watches what he eats and is one of those people who comments on how bad or good for you something is (at least to family and close friends). I always kind of feel guilty if I am eating something sweet or greasy in front of him.
Anyway, I don't know what came over him but he ordered one of every type of girl scout cookie at work (presumably a co-worker's child sent mom or dad to work to take orders for them). So now, EEKS, I am the proud owner of Tagalongs (140 calories, 9 g of fat per serving of 2 cookies and Ducle de leche ( a liiiiiitle better on the stats with 160 calories, 8 g of fat for 4).
First of all, is it just me or have the boxes gotten WAY smaller over the years? And why the heck do these things have TRANS FAT in them?? Aren't these supposed to be wholesome, American cookies? You know, with America trying hard to fight childhood obesity and the food guide recommending never consuming trans fat ever ever?
Sigh...I will see how long it takes me to open the first box. I am usually a sucker of these things, despite the calories and trans fat. I do feel like writing the girl scouts and requesting that they remove the trans fat. After all, if McDonald's can do it, so can they!
Sigh...It's between 5 and 6 on Thursday. Usually I am in Body Combat class right now. I somehow screwed up my knee so I have decided to take it easy. I haven't been to the gym since Monday night. :( BUT I did a lot of walking today because (Hello!) it's 60 degrees here on February 17!
I hope everyone is doing well and had a great Valentine's Day!
