Cookies got me

I made a choice to eat a cookie at the mall at lunchtime. In retrospect, it wasn't the best choice I could have made. I figured I was doing OK by eating a cookie and not the baked chips that came with my turkey sub from Subway. Sure, it was 5 Points vs. 3 for the chips, but I really wanted the cookie — and at least I didn't eat BOTH.

And I'd have probably been fine had I not decided to have Starbucks, too, before I headed to work. That means I wasted 8 Points on a cookie and coffee, because I got a peppermint mocha (even with less syrup, I've been counting them as 3). The latte is pictured on my desk at work, along with a holiday photo of my darling nephew. Cute, isn't he?

Then, toward the end of my shift at work, the press guys came up and said "We have cookies in the back."

Now, I should have just said "no." But I still have a hard time turning down free food ... especially desserts. So I made the trek back to the pressroom (at least it put some extra steps on the pedometer!) and fetched us some cookies. :P

That cookie added 5 more Points to the total in my chart, meaning I had 34 Points for the day ... 11 FPs down on Day 2 of the WW week.

So that goal didn't happen. However, the other three did. I exercised, I tracked and I did something else I can't remember at the moment.

To shamelessly corrupt a classic Meatloaf song (sorry, Mr. Loaf), three out of four ain't bad.

  1. yeah you had the cookie, but if you didnt have the cookie, further down the line you would have ended up eating the whole plate! It's good to not deprive yourself especially since you're smart and you know it was a treat and not a daily routine. You'll get right back on tomorrow!
