Calories don't count when...

...you're on vacation. Did you know that?

Also, if food is frozen prior to consumption you expend more calories to warm it up than the food actually contains.  Any food...  thus the reason for frozen yellow zingers in my freezer... they're delicious.

Licorice - negative calories.

Broken chips and pretzels?  Yep, all the calories fell out. 

Why do I mention this?  well, I maybe didn't have such a good week with fight the scale Fridays...  of course, I refuse to actually talk to the scale, so we're not really fighting... kind of a "cold war" type thing...

and hey - I've got company visiting.  My sister (author of her own blog - less snarky than mine... being as it's a scriptural commentary blog) is visiting - and we might have bought a package of white chocolate macadamia nut cookie dough and a tub of ice cream... just because we're trying to be faithful.

Faithful?  Yep, this morning my uber scriptorian sister comes up the stairs (because we're nice and we keep our guests in the basement) and asks me about a scripture she's  been pondering...

Jeremiah 2:33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.

OBVIOUSLY this means that a person should never lose weight just for love.  or maybe it means never get a haircut just for love (yipes, let's not let the teenagers read THIS scripture)

and yes, Z and all you other scriptural gurus out there might disagree with me, but I'm looking forward to white chocolate macadamia nut cookie dough ice cream... for lunch.

Enjoy some for me too, since they don't count anyway!

Frozen yellow Zingers? Really? I'm gonna have to try those out.

I'm in a battle with the scale myself. Ten measly pounds. Just ten little pounds! How can they be so stubborn?? The worst part is, I've found that it's not exercise that gets rid of them (which would be nice since that's my particular obsession of late). I mean, it's good for you and all that, but the only time I see the numbers drop is when I'm cutting calories like a madwoman.

And I hate cutting calories.

Becky - frozen yellow zingers are second only to fresh baked peanut butter cookies sandwiched together with Marshmallow Fluff...

sorry. and now you can see why (aside from my new scriptural excuse) my last 13 pounds are staying put.

there's another scripture out there that actually says "delight in fatness"... although I wouldn't know where to find it to save my life.

I need to try a frozen zinger... just as soon as my body is perfect.

Holly said...

You better keep that stuff stocked in the freezer for the next time we show up--zingers too.

Yay for sisters and ice cream! :)

JoJo said...

You burn calories from chewing so you're good!

You threw me for a minute when you said, "Z" in your post…my friend, Melanie calls me that along with her whole family and for just a moment, i thought you were talking to me.

Go figure...

I don't feel so bad for eating those cookies for dinner now. It was the right thing to do. I feel so righteous now. And healthy.
