I have been sleeping so well this week which translates into I don’t want to get up in the morning. Even us morning people sometimes like to sleep and have to drag ourselves out of bed.
I gave in to the hype and finally tried a Lenny & Larry’s chocolate chip cookie. Let’s discuss.
You see how the chocolate chip cookie is broken in half? Well, it was broken in half in the package and although I didn’t want a broken cookie, it was the only package left in the store so I accepted it.
Perhaps the broken cookie was a sign notifying me that the serving size of this actually tasty chocolate chip cookie is only for ONE HALF of the cookie.
Too bad I didn’t know the serving size was for HALF of the cookie before I happily ate the whole cookie.
Who wants to buy an individually wrapped cookie and only eat half?
Not only am I annoyed that an individually wrapped big cookie is supposed to be served in half (insanity), if I am going to eat a whole cookie for 360 total calories, almost 50 grams of carbs and 12 grams of fat, it’s going to be in the form of a real cookie…or a donut or ice cream. Or, basically, a dessert that is not considered health food, something not sold at a vitamin store and something not packaged as a protein snack.
I would rather go to Dunkin Donuts for a chocolate crème filled donut for less money, fewer calories and even less carbs <- I don’t normally count calories or want to see dessert calories but for this comparison I needed to look it up.
While the cookie was decent and may be made healthier than a traditional cookie (or donut), I would not waste my money on it again. It’s not like I look to the cookie (ha, Seinfeld reference) or to dessert for my protein and nutrients anyway.
I finally made the decision that my Energy Boosts are still my main pair, first choice and the best.
I like knowing that I can really wear either pair of running shoes for any type of run and even feel confident enough in both pairs for a race BUT after paying really close (and slightly ridiculous) attention to how each shoe feels, the Energy Boosts win out for first place over the Saucony Rides.
Remember how I said I don’t like my facebook Time hop feature? Well, it still notifies me even though I asked it not to do so. This week was the three-year anniversary of that time I was a famous TV star on the Dr. Oz show.
Who remembers that? If you missed it, I recapped it in this post, way back when I first started this blog!
Although I did enjoy seeing that memory, my latest issue with Time Hop is that it is slowly giving me a midlife crisis.
When I see posts about my son from five years ago, I am freaking out. It’s like I posted those moments just yesterday but it wasn’t yesterday, it was five years ago!
Where did the time go? And even worse, it is making me realize that five years from now will be here in a flash which means he will be a senior in high school getting ready for college before I know it.
Cue my freak out, approaching empty nest and midlife crisis.
I am seriously trying to embrace every moment even more than before, including the not-so-polite moments of the other night when we went out for frozen yogurt. My son felt the need to scope out the scene inside the frozen yogurt store before we could in together just to make sure he didn’t know anyone. Because, as if we should already know this, I am embarrassing to be seen with.
Lucky for me, he didn’t know anyone so I was allowed in to have my after dessert snack. After dessert snack = Dessert #2 for the night.Thinking Out Loud #lennyandlarrys #thinkingoutloud #timehop #midlifecrisis #droz #fitfluential #running Click To Tweet
Don’t forget to check out what everyone else is thinking about today 🙂
Are you a Lenny & Larry’s fan?
If you have kids, are they old enough to be embarrassed to be seen with you?
Last time you had frozen yogurt? What toppings did you get?
