I’m going to tell you all something that is going to BLOW. YOUR. MIND. Paul and I are giving up ice cream until we go to Hawaii! That’s right. For the next two months, no ice cream for us! Maybe we will eat ice cream in Hawaii, but apparently shaved ice is the frozen treat of choice on the island, so we will see.
The No Ice Cream Initiative was Paul’s idea. He wants to eat a little healthier, which is hard to do when I insist on having 3-4 cartons of ice cream in the freezer at a time. We eat it at night whether we crave it or not. But when it’s not there, we don’t crave it! So the plan is not to buy it so we don’t eat it.
We have been without ice cream for over a week now and it has been going really well now! I truly don’t even want any. I am sure I will eventually start craving it, but right now, I am doing fine without it. I am sure that first bowl of ice cream I have after two months is going to taste sooooo good.
Lest you think I have given up desserts completely, here’s what I have been having instead of ice cream…
1. Honey Nut Cheerios
2. Peanut Butter Toast Crunch
3. Angel food cake w/ strawberries,
milk, and chocolate morsels (I don’t play)
4. Chocolate morsels with
big spoonfuls of peanut butter
(I have to ease up on this because I am really flying fast and loose
with the amount of peanut butter I am consuming.)
So that’s my big Saturday news for you! I’m sure you were hoping for something much more exciting than the No Ice Cream Initiative…
What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Anything with cake or cookie pieces in it!
Do you keep it in the house? Not right now, but usually I do!
Do you eat dessert every night? YES!
