Resolution Failure turned ROCKSTAR!

One month into 2013 and I have already managed to fail my New Years Resolution.  You know, the usual “I am totally going work out every day”.  Now normally, I would feel a bit guilty about failing so early in the year.  But I have done something untrue to man.  This year…first year ever…I have refrained from buying Girl Scout cookies.  I KNOW!!!  I can hear you all gasping for air.  Not only do I usually buy them, but I would purchase at least six boxes in a given year.  And that’s on the conservative side.  I’m not one of those girls who can get away with buying one box and be pleased about it.  No.  I would buy two boxes of Thin Mints, two boxes of Tagalongs and two boxes of Samoas’.  All of which are consumed by me, this girl who lives alone.  I can hear you all gasping again.  So as you can imagine this non purchase is HUGE for me!  A big deal to say the least.  And below you’ll see why! 

According to my calculations there are:

160 calories in (4) thin mint cookies.  There is approximately 28 cookies per box.             This is (7) servings.    (7) servings x 160 calories per serving = 1,120 total calories!! 

140 calories in (2) Samoas cookies.  There is approximately 15 cookies per box.            This is (7.5) servings.  (7.5) servings x 140 calories per serving = 1,050 total calories!!

140 calories in (2) tagalong cookies.  There is approximately 15 cookies per box.           This is (7.5) servings. (7.5) servings x 140 calories per serving = 1,050 total calories!!

The total calories I saved from my monumental decision is 3,220.00

I don’t know about you, but when I broke it all down, I no longer felt guilty.  I felt like a ROCKSTAR! 

Now we enter into February, no more excuses.  Time to buckle it down and get in the game.  Brazilian Butt Lift here I come!!
