Now, on to cookies! Certain foods can create more problems for you than others. For me, cookies are a BIG problem! My favorites are chocolate chip. I'm still shocked that I did so well and really used self-restraint over the holidays and barely had any cookies.
Sometimes they just call to me though. I get it in my mind that I want to eat them and then a mental battle ensues. I think it is worse when it is unexpected. Maybe why I did well during the holidays is because I expected to see cookies everywhere and prepared for it. Now it is when I stumble across them that I seem to have issues.
This happened today. I went into the kitchen area at my work to heat up my very point friendly soup for lunch and saw these:
Now, those aren't chocolate chips, but I know that they are good cookies. They were left out for anyone to take and I was definitely tempted! I had that whole inner dialog of how much damage it would cause to have just one. . .
Well, I said no. I reminded myself that it really wouldn't be worth it. Besides, who wants to eat a Steelers cookie when we were so bad this year? We didn't even make the playoffs. That doesn't deserve a cookie, right?
Crises averted. But, after you get the idea in your mind of wanting something sweet it is hard to kick that. It would have been easier today if I had a point/calorie friendly sweet snack on me.
I wanted to share the Celebration Cake Weight Watchers snacks with you all. They are delicious! They are 2 ww+ points per cookie. They are small, but if you just need that sweet taste then they definitely work. They sort of remind me of those zebra cakes, to a certain extent. They are really sweet though. I have a sweet tooth so I like them, but I think worth giving them a try.
They are on sale this week, along with many other of their snacks, so if you are close to a Weight Watchers location go check them out!
Do you have any particular foods that you find hard to resist? How do you not give in to the temptation?
