My Kryponite

Every great superhero has its nemesis. The itch they don't dare scratch. The one thing that challenges them to the very limit of their desire to do good.

Luke had Darth Vader.

Tom had Jerry.

Batman had the Joker.

My friends, meet my nenesis.


Whose brilliant idea was it to deliver Girl Scout cookies during Lent?

Just curious.

Seriously.

Amber! This was such a problem for me last year. I ordered an insane ammount of girl scout cookies prior to starting Weight Watchers. They were delivered just as I started making progress. I thought I could eat them a few points at a time. I finally started crying and told Tyler to get rid of them. He handed them out all over town. I think I actually grieved my loss, but at least I did not gain all of the weight back. - Angela

I know, huh?

I left a comment somewhere that Girl Scout cookies are the bane of the Lenten season!

I abstained last year. Not one cookie passed these lips. I plan to do the same this year. But I think there is an 8th Amendment rule about such punishment!

Should have ordered the lemon ones, then you'd be safe. Good luck, as they say: "they freeze well"

um, they've been my weakness this past week too. Those thin mints and the peanut butter patties. Heaven! Sorry you can't partake yet. I'm afraid I'm doing the enjoying for you. :)

i just had my thin mint for today as well (thankfully, cubby doesn't like girl scout cookies and so we don't get them...but my mom does!) good luck on holding out!

Thank heavens they have some that aren't chocolate for us during the next weeks, right?!?
Your comment made me smile today. Thank you for that! How'd you know I was needing a major smile pick me up?!?
You rock!

Rosanne said...

I'm with ya sista!! Love the Thin Mints...I get mine this Friday...and that's not good because I JUST decided to start eating "good." I may have to put that thought on hold. Ahhh, man. :)

I believe girl scout cookies are evil. Not really, but I (amazingly) didn't even buy any this year. Mostly because the only time I saw anyone selling them, my husband was with me, and he gently steered me in the opposite direction.

Oh no! That would be really hard...thin mints are wonderful! I wish the best of luck! :)

Thin Mints are my crack. Just put in an order with my seven-year old dealer across the street........

Hi, love your blog, but I wanted to point out that you mean "its kryptonite," not "it's kryptonite." "It's" is only used to represent IT IS. Misused apostrophes are one of my biggest pet peeves so I had to say something - sorry!!

Kellan said...

(Sorry- I meant "its nemesis," not "its kryptonite)

Kellan...noted and corrected. Usually I'm pretty good, but I missed this particular one.:-)

I know what you mean! just yesterday I passed a poster saying this house had the infamous cookies, and while I LOVE the samoas, seeing the price of $3.50 a box when I know I only get 12 in a box, calmed my hunger a little, I was on my way to the dentist so no I didn't give in.

The Hartungs said...

once your done "lenting" also during this time dryers sells these delicious cookies in ice cream!!

Eloise said...

I am right there with you! I had lost a little weight in anticipation of being in a bathing suit during spring break, but I gained every bit of it back (and more probably) when the Thin Mints arrived!

Which reminds me... where are MY thin mints damn it?
