A little over a week ago, Paul and I sat down and had a serious discussion. We were eating too much ice cream. The last trip to Dairy Queen was the straw that broke the camel's back. Something had to be done.
We vowed to give up ice cream for a few weeks. This should have been no problem. Last spring, we gave it up for a couple months. Two weeks should have been easy peasy.
The point of giving up ice cream was to eat less sweets. Well, do you want to know what I ate instead of ice cream?
- Fruity Pebbles
- Chocolate Cake
- Chocolate Morsels w/ Peanut Butter
- Canned Peaches
Yeah, our plan didn't work. It turns out, if I want sweets, I will find a way to get them- ice cream or no ice cream. The canned peaches was the last straw. I mean, holy shit, why do I even have canned peaches in my pantry, and who even EATS canned peaches? NOT ME!
Oh well, I learned a lot from this little experiment. I should just eat what I crave, rather than putter around the kitchen trying to fill a hole that can only be filled by ice cream.
