You Know You're...

...on the Big D when your child gets a brownie sample at the grocery store and you really want to steal it from him...even AFTER he proceeds to sneeze on it. Yeah.

Sorry, I know you are sick of hearing about the Big D, so I'm going to try and stop talking about it. Really. I promise that is the last time for awhile. But that just had to be shared...because it really happened. And it's sad. Sad and true.

And that is all for now. I will be back soon with a post (complete with pictures) about our visit with my niece!

That's awesome!
Yes. Desperate times can call for desperate measures.
I was doing really well on my big D today until I had to make some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for a neighbor. I did one bowl lick and ate one cookie. I am pretty sure that this equals 12 WW points, but I am going to be safe and just call it 2. :-)

P.S. Had a really fun time with Rochelle a couple weeks ago!

Oh, Alana, I am not tired of hearing about actually makes me feel better, knowing I'm not alone in my brownie-deprivation. :)

yeah, you wanna know how obviousit is that we're dieting?!?

we have been so good...and then we had friends over last night for dinner....friends who brought brownies. and not just your typical brownies...these devils had candy bars, caramel and coconut in them.

i think our guests were astonished when the hubby and I helped ourselves to TWO SERVINGS. Geez..i'm embarrassed now.

at least they weren't sneezed on though!

There's just something about brownies...

Glad you had a great time with your niece, and yes, it is funny that we were both entertaining our nieces the same week in B-town! Did she wear you out as much as the 7 year old did me???

Oh Alana! You are so good for me! I'm right there with you! Brownies are like kryptonite! I need to go do pilates just from thinking about them! Can't wait to see you!

Lynn said... know they usually have enough of those samples for don't have to steal the slimy one from your son.

...good for you for resisting. ;o)

Kryptonite. Yes, that is what they are.

Yesterday we drove through Starbucks on our way to the pool, and I got one of those Vivanno drinks (the chocolate bananna is REALLY good.) I was all proud of myself because they're only 270 calories (not much more than a mocha) and they have 21 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fiber. AND THEN the nice starbucks lady said, "Can I give you some FREE raspberry brownies?" It was like satan himself spoke! Of course the girls heard her, and were yelling YEAH! So she gave us two brownies. I had two small bites, and dang they were good. Once we got to the pool, I threw the rest away, because I knew if I ate anymore I'd be so mad at myself later. It was all I could do though, to drop those babies in the trash can!
