I have a secret, do you promise not to tell?
Girl Scout's honor?
I ate an entire sleeve of thin mints today.
Well, not an entire one, I gave two of the cookies to my children because they were all at my feet while my head was in my cabinet, while I was trying to SECRETLY shove the cookies into my mouth. I would nonchalantly return to the cabinet, oh, about every 2 minutes to shove yet another thin mint into my mouth. By about the fourth trip, the children caught on, or they could smell it on my breath and on my fingers and they began to ask me for a treat.
I gave in and gave them one.
I haven't eaten an entire sleeve of thin mints since I was 8 months pregnant with Ariel, and that particular sleeve I ate it in about 35 minutes, while sitting alone in my office at nine in the morning. It was divine. Until my boss walked in and asked me for a thin mint. I was like "what thin mints?" He replied "the sleeve I just saw you walk in with like ten minutes ago....wait a minute...did you eat them all?" It was a great moment for all pregnant woman across America.
Of course, then I was eight months pregnant Now? Not so much. In my defense, it did take me over eight hours to eat that sleeve today, but still. An entire sleeve???
But I promise, I'm going to curb my girl scout cookie eating starting tonight. No more girl scout cookies for me. I will resist the urge to have ANYMORE COOKIES. I am empowered.
Plus, they are all gone. Should be easy.
And the candy from Halloween? Gone, taken care of.
By yours truly.
It's been a busy week taking care of all that junk food.
Which leads me to my point. I gained a pound this week. Of course, that was before the Great Thin Mint Incident of 2007, so I'm not off to a great start for next week, but seeing has how the junk is all gone, I can now move on to bigger and better things.
To see how others are doing, just go here.
