One tough cookie
Monday, January 30, 2017
Today, I am one tough cookie. Why? Well, after a day of loading, transporting and unloading over 1,000 boxes of cookies (yes, girl scout cookies), I not only got my workout but I also resisted any temptation to eat a single cookie.
Adding to my short term goal list: resist the temptation to eat girl scout cookies until after they are all gone (Feb 19th). I will still buy some because our troop also offers the option to donate them to the local food pantry and to people serving in the military. I think a bowl of blueberries or blackberries will be my go-to.
So, if you see a girl scout, and want to be helpful without being tempted, ask if they offer food pantry or military donations as an option. It is a win-win. You get to help 2 groups of people and not wreck your eating plan.
Then you can be one tough cookie with me :)
