Tagalongs, Samoas, and ThinMints, Oh My!

I have been super busy and super stressed at work lately and my drug of choice to numb myself  has been Girl Scout Cookies.  I don’t even want to think about how much sugar I have ingested in the last 3 days.  I swear I think they put cocaine in those cookies because they are so addictive – especially those darn Thin Mints – they are both heaven and evil in one small minty cookie. 

J’adore/Je deteste les Thin Mints.

In related news, I’m afraid to step on the scale and see what kind of damage I’ve done. I think I need to just go cold turkey on the sweet stuff for awhile and see how I handle it.  I never really believed that I was a sugar addict, but now I’m beginning to think that might not be too far fetched after all. I’m eating really great from 7am – 5pm, but it’s that hour after work that kills me – and the hour after dinner. Those two hours are party time for me – after work because I’m so darned happy to be home that I want to celebrate with something sweet, and after dinner because “I just need a little something sweet”.  I have to get a handle on these two hours – they are killing my dreams of being a Super Hot Wonder Woman.

Fear me cookies! I fend off sweets with my Gold Bracelets of Death!

  1. I have had the same problem with the Hershey’s Kisses at work the past two days. I even took carrots to munch on to ward off the Kisses. That worked for two hours. Where can I get some of those Gold Bracelets of Death? I have three more days of work this week!!!!!

  2. I used to be that way, then I stopped buying the cookies…actually, I stopped buying all the munchie weakness foods. Which didn’t do a bit of good because my husband went ahead and started buying them.
    I try to tell myself that the cookie is going to make me feel worse, not better.

  3. I have those gold bracelets in a box somewhere. I should try to find them to see if they still have the power to fend off sweets.

    Those cookies are so addicting. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had cocaine or nicotine in them. Like potato chips, you can’t stop after just one.

    I’m lucky to be out of the office and away from those cookie pushing girl scouts. Unfortunately, I found mint fudge cookies at the local supermarket that taste even better than thin mints.

  4. OMG you totally brought me back to when I had my Wonder Woman bathing suit as a kid…which of course I wanted to wear all. the. time.
    Step away from the cookies, Jill! A detox is a good idea – I went through the same thing, and completely cutting sugar out went a long way toward breaking its hold on me.

  5. This post cracked me up! Love the WW coment. If you find any gold bracelets of death that really work, can you send them my way? Thanks!

  6. i thankfully passed on ordering them this year. i always order thinking, i’ll freeze them, and open a pack a month or every two weeks, and within a week they are gone! lmao
