Cookies Meet Aerobics Over at CNN!

CNN has a story that I will definitely be using before summer about working off the Girl Scout cookies!

If you eat four of the cookies at 160 calories, you could burn off that energy with approximately half an hour of bicycling at a leisurely pace. Not so bad. For exercise tips and comparative analysis of other cookies, definitely read the entire article!
