Cookie Monster

It has been a rough morning, one of the nurses baked homemade chocolate chip cookies for her breastfeeding education class last night and there is a whole Ziploc bag of them in the breakroom. It is one of my biggest weaknesses, and I have not resisted temptation! :(

On that same note, shouldn't stress help you lose weight? But ironically, the chemical cortisol that is produced when you have anxiety actually makes you keep and add weight around your midsection. So, if I were LESS stressed, I would probably lose weight. Hmmmm. Will have to work on that one. R&D today at 4:00pm with my gal pals, and one glass of wine (90 calories and 2 Weight Watcher points). Happy Thursday!

My mantra is everything in moderation! If you want that chocolate chip cookie, eat it!! Just don't eat the whole bag!! :)

I enjoy life's little pleasures (like cookies) and I think that depriving yourself of them is not going to make you live any longer, again as long as you don't eat the whole bag. If anything depriving yourself may stress you out more, which may add to more weight gain around your midsection!

Nancy savor that glass of wine. I am craving it big time!!!!
