I enjoy Girl Scout cookies...I really do. There's not many people around who hadn't had a good cookie from the girls in green (or blue, pretty sure one of my sashes were blue). And yes, I did buy 2 boxes (one Thin Mint and one Shortbread) when one of my students asked me. Normally I find that even if I bought a box, I can pretty much ignore them most of the time and have a couple here and there as a treat. I realized the other day that I still have a box of cookies stashed from 2 years ago. (They went in the trash as soon as I found them.)
So what's my issue now? Every where I turn I find references to them. They're talking about them on the radio station I listen to and one of the news anchors mentioned them in several different broadcasts. It's not any better on here, I keep seeing articles on which ones are better for me and dailyspark blogs about which ones are better. It seems like everywhere I turn it's cookie cookie cookie cookiecookiecookieCOOKIE!
I had a serving of the shortbread cookies as a mid-morning snack. I am currently fighting going back to the box to get some more. My usual out-of-sight out-of-mind approach isn't working this time because my HEALTHY LIVING SITE won't stop suggesting articles to read about the stupid things. I'm getting to the point where I'm either going to stop using SP or throw the stupid cookies into the trash because I will NOT derail my weight loss journey because of a stupid box of cookies. I will NOT lose ground because everyone else seems to be obsessed with them.
