Go out for a walk. Then come home and bake bread.

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!

if you decide to make cookies you could make a very healthy version. think merenge cookies, south beach, weight watchers. there's lots of recipes online. or make 1 of something. like 1 lowfat brownie. low or no fat muffins/bread.

if it was me, it would be better to just do something else completely. the best time to exercise is when i have the house to myself. or cleaning with rubber gloves on. or i'll end up eating all the cookies.

Woop, Woop! I refrained. I took my butt upstairs and went thru boxed up clothes that were too small when I moved here. I resurrected about 10 pairs of pants, 3 skirts, one dress, and 15 shirts. No way I am baking cookies now! LOL!
