Today was National Cookie Day

Tuesday, December 04, 2012


My inspiring friend FERRETLOVER1’s blog today
clued me in that Today was National Cookie Day.
(I didn't read it until 30 mins ago at 10 pm)

Sunday, Dad said, "You know what I haven't had in years?
Molasses cookies." So yesterday I bought a bag of Archway
Iced Molasses cookies at the store to take to him today..
?!?!?!?! Can you GUESS where this is going ?!?!?!?!

I celebrated WELL ! THE WHOLE BAG !!!

They were on the couch next to other stuff I was taking him.
The old adage “Out of sight, Out of mind” has an inverse:
“In sight, In mind” !
I haven’t had any in years either, “I told myself. And I have been
pretty good today. I’ll have just 2.”

So took out 2, closed the bag, Re-heated my hot tea and sat in
The recliner to ENJOY them bite by bite.
And I DID.
But the Sugar Craving Monster reared his ugly head.
Every 30 minutes, I got “Just 2 more cookies”

When I got down to just 4 more cookies, I did another Spark no-no.
In my sugar stupor, I told myself, “Oh, well, I can’t take Dad just 4
cookies out of the whole bag. I might as well finish them off!”

Consequently, I was so full and MISERABLE, that I couldn’t lie
down to go to sleep. So I ended up sitting up in the recliner
til 3 am !!!

Before Spark, I would have beat myself up BAD !
For days.
Now I have thought through where I went wrong,
forgave myself and tried to finish today sensibly.
10 waters
2 unsweetened 12oz green teas
15 min walk
later a 30 min walk
5 mins with 3 lb dumbbells

Let's all have
a Wonderful - but SENSIBLE - Wednesday

PS - Maybe I subconsciously picked up
the cookie vibe long before I knew it
was the cookie "holiday" !
