It's 7:47 pm. I finished my dinner over an hour ago. All I can think about right now is getting 3 chocolate chip cookies and a chocolate milk from McDonald's. Have you guys tried those things? The cookies aren't warm, but they somehow figured out a way to make the chocolate chips melty and gooey anyway. Pure evil.

When the craving hit me, I just said, "Oh no, not again." I stared at Angie with that look that I get. She knows exactly what the look means and doesn't need me to tell her that I want something decadent. I sat there and pouted for a bit, angry that the craving entered my mind in the first place, and wondering what would happen. I honestly didn't know if I would succumb to the craving or ride it out. I still don't know.

Angie informed me that the McDonald's cookies are 160 calories each. "That's not that bad," I replied.

It's now 8:06 pm and I still want to cruise through the drive through. However, I decided to put on my workout clothes and do a weight training video. After that, I'll see how I feel about running 3 miles. If that goes well, maybe I'll go to McDonald's and get one cookie. Maybe.

To be continued...

Don't give in! You'll feel crap after them... and you know it too!

Keep up the good work and kick ass on the 3 miles!

Did you get the cookie?

How far is McDonalds? I know how hard it is to say no... so maybe next time you could walk there... and just get 1 cookie... then walk back!

Oh my gosh, those cookies were such a binge staff member for me. I had strings of days where I subsisted almost entirely on cookies and apple pies, tiny bottles of milk, and the occasional burger from McDonald's. But really, it was the chocolate chip cookies that did it for me.

I wish you could just buy one. I guess you could buy the 3 and then just toss the other 2? I don't want to be in the business of permanently cutting things out of my diet and my life, but I hear you on this struggle.
