Yummy, Yummy Ice Cream
There is a very small and equally unlikely chance that I may be eating ice cream every night of the week. I know this seems hard to believe and, in truth, I am as shocked as you probably are.
It probably started with a Popsicle here and a cremesicle there. It is, after all, quite hot and something cool after dinner probably seems like a reasonable thing to have. Never mind that I don't normally eat sweets during the week, except on special occasions. 45 or 90 extra calories isn't going to hurt, right? Somehow the nightly treat routine seems to have morphed into a nightly dessert routine. A 230 calorie serving of ice cream? Sure, why not? Some peanut clusters on a Tuesday? Yes! Bring it on! An entire PINT of Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream?
This is not moderation. This is literally too much of a good thing. So I am going to lay off the ice cream and go back to my normal policy of eating sweets only on the weekends. Luckily my weight hasn't (yet) been affected adversely by my little deviation into creamy, sweet ice-cream land. But my peace of mind has been affected and that's a problem.
