Help yourself, even when the plan is to treat yourself.
Somehow I’d missed it, despite the half-dozen emails, group texts, etc. Or maybe deliberately ignored it, whatever — but it’s happening anyway, and right here in my own house: Girl Scout Cookies are coming!
We dealers are reminded: Don’t get high on your own supply. And I have been very, very successful at my 2017 goal of reducing my sugar intake — it was out of control, and now it’s in healthy moderation. Yay, me!
But the thing is, I woke up at 3:30 a.m. this morning thinking of Tagalongs. They are my kryptonite. And I must be realistic about what my life will be like during cookie season.
Which is where AbsoluteFIT comes in. I’m planning ahead: a few extra workouts (building calorie-burning muscle!), the support of my trainers and workout buddies, the discipline I’ve developed through AbsoluteFIT to savor a few of those little demons-in-cookie-form instead of inhaling the entire box at once.
Who’s with me?
Lydia Markoff is an Almaden-area writer, mom, and fitness enthusiast with Texas roots, a New York education, and a Californian heart. She plays bass, reads a lot, watches too much TV, and can be found in the AbsoluteFIT studio three to five times a week. Her life goals include having a body like Linda Hamilton’s in Terminator 2, and/or having Bill Murray randomly crash a party she is attending. If you need something from her, try bribing her with good coffee or cold beer; odds are, she wants one or the other of those right now.
