2 small successes

I didn't get to walk Friday because I ended up taking the baby to the doctor and the rest of the day was spent getting ready for a boutique Saturday. On the way home from the doctors office, it was 11:30 and I was so hungry. I knew I would be driving past a Burger King and a Whopper Jr. sounded SO good. I thought about all the food I had home (which isn't very much) and nothing sounded good. BUT I didn't give in! I drove past the BK and went home to eat! (A Whopper Jr still sounds good though. :) )

Ok, the other one is that our home teachers called and asked to come over for the first time in a while. So I thought it would be fun to make cookies. We had to clean up the living room first though (and the kitchen, and the front room, and the...) Needless to say I ended up running out of time. Lo and behold, they brought us cookies! So instead of having a whole batch of cookies to munch on all evening, I got two super yummy little cookies. They were really little ones too, so cute, and perfect porportion to get a little taste. I was thinking the next time I make cookies (which will probably be soon because it's going to be a cold stormy weekend) I am going to put the dough in rolls in the freezer so when we bake them, we make one pan or less. Just enough for each of us to get a couple and that's it.

Just wanted to share my little milestones with you guys. OH, and add a goal to my list: stock the house with yummy food, that is also healthy-ish to cut down on my BK temptations.

Well done, Carrie! You are starting strong! Isn't stocking the house with desirable good-choice food the key? I always find myself thinking that if I could just put better versions of all the fast-food junk I crave in my pantry and fridge, I would save so much money and lose weight!
So true...good idea about the cookie dough too. I had decided not to do any baking this holiday season because of the extra that ends up laying around the house and getting eaten. But perhaps I will just learn from your wisdom!
