PUT DOWN THE FLOUR!... WALK AWAY.
Its probably freezing in SD, but walk around for a minute and clear your head. Then, ask yourself why you want to make cookies. Is it tradition?
Maybe it is the smells? Or is it the snacking and the thought of sneaking a sample during cooking.
If its the smells, find a scented candle and light it.
If it is tradition, you can make a new one. (crafts and hobbies)
If it is the thought of sample sneaking, you really can have the same effect without all the effort. Your body is wanting sugar, and fat. Can you find a different way of supplying that without the added temptation of a basket full of cookies.
Whatever your choice, you will be good. Because no matter what you choose, you are going to stay on plan, or get back on plan. You are NOT going to beat yourself up about it. You just needed a second to clear your head to make the choice, and getting on here did it! That is a victory in and of itself. GOOD JOB!
This is about more than a number... It is about my LIFE!
