The Siren's Call Of Girl Scout Cookies
Thursday, February 28, 2013
Like the Sirens in the tales that called to wayward sailors, so too do Girl Scout cookies call to me. I but them every year from a guy at work (he sells them for his daughter) in the spirit of helping out the GS. I always buy 4 boxes. Two Thin Mints and Two Caramel deLites (or Samoas, they are the same). This yr I set two boxes out at work and let everyone enjoy them. But two went home with me (one of each kind). I was going to be good. A few cookies as a treat in the evening. After all...I'm an adult...I have total control of ME...right? HA! Nope...WRONG!! The Caramel deLites were gone in one setting (that would be Tuesday night) and now half the box of Thin Mints are gone (that would be last night), with the other half in the freezer (I love them frozen!) calling my name is sweet siren's voice. What was I thinking? Well...I wasn't. I was just going to have two and next thing I know..the box is empty.
Both nights! Although the Thin Mints are as bad as the Caramel deLites (calorie wise) they are still bad (and no..I didn't log them, but I know what I did!)! I really need to get a grip!
OK....enough about the GS cookies. Other then that, it wasn't a bad eating day. I made spaghetti for dinner. I use Ronzoni Smart Taste Thin spaghetti noodles, it's 180 calories for 2 oz. so it's not too bad. And a sauce, some cheese, and two slices of garlic bread and we had dinner!
I did 56 mins in the gym today. I know that's an odd number, but sometimes it just works out that way. I did the treadmill again. Next week I'll switch back to the elliptical. And eating was good. I was rushed to get my salad ate before working out, but I did it!
So that's it for today! I'm looking forward to the weekend...are you?
