Saying No to Little Girl Scouts
Monday, March 25, 2013
No, I did not say no when they came knocking at the door. Couldn't do that. I was a Girl Scout and depended on it to go camping. This year, I said yes and bought Girl Scout cookies. That was before I decided to quit wheat. I ordered them from the same little girl I ordered from for the last couple years. Her mom put a note up on FB and I e-mailed her, as we don't live in the same town as them any more.
Meanwhile, my husband bought some from someone else. (Been there and done that before too.)
The difference. I have said NO to wheat. The cookies have wheat. When ALL the cookies arrived, I set a box aside to give to each son for an Easter gift, and watched my dh make haste with his first box, and he put away the rest. I mean he hid them from me, and set them aside for other events. Every time he has pulled them out, and even my old favorite thin mints, I have said no. The only thing I told him when he was eating them in my sight was to hide the package so I couldn't see it from where I was sitting.
I have said no to the little Girl Scouts.
Brownies, now that is a whole other thing.
Several weeks ago, I had a brownie at some church event, or maybe I made them, I don't remember. I ate one, and the next day my stomach hurt. and I made frequent bathroom trips, and my face broke out. No more brownies for me.
So, yesterday, when at a church potluck, nearly all the desserts were brownies. I just said no. To Brownies and to little Girl Scouts. Someone brought a gluten free Pizzelle (spelling) cookie, and I had just one. I made healthy choices, veggies, protein, fruit, and the one cookie, and lots of water.
Last night, I did not have my middle of the evening hungries either. So today, I am doing my happy dance.
Just say no.
One day at a time.
One cookie at a time. Say no in its face. Better yet, don't let it get that close.
Have a great Monday. Off to work now. Got to pack my lunch.
