Ice Cream. I like it. I like it a lot. I love it. I hate it. I have mental battle with it. Ugh – it is a total love hate relationship.
It’s no secret I love to bake and I love my sweets. I have toned down on them significantly over the years and feel more in control. Then there is ice cream.
Ice Cappucinos. I enjoyed those too much too prior to joining Royally Fit 15 months ago. However I cut back significantly and am now on a hiatus (2 + months in) from them too. I might just need to put these on the forever list now that I’m over them too.
Then there is ice cream. I gave it up for my first 10 months of Royally Fit and was doing great. Then this summer I had a funnel cake delivered to me as a random act of kindness and it was the start of my decline (I had never had a funnel cake and I was not wasting it!). At the trailer I had a Kawartha Dairy cone with my son. That became another cone and another week after week. Then I discovered a Kawartha Dairy Store two blocks from me… you get the drift. It is like an obsession. Even when I am trying to abstain I am thinking about it.
I broke up with the Kawartha Dairy Store about 6 weeks ago. It was a good feeling, but I subbed it’s absence with Dairy Queen mocha moo lattes. Too many. I’m always (trying to) justify why I should take a trip there or why I’m deserving.
Some things I can enjoy in moderation, some things not so much. I don’t know why I crave it so much as there is really no other food I think about more. It is a mental battle as I don’t believe it’s a sugar addiction. I can eat any other sweet without ill effects of craving more. It has some magical spell over my taste buds as I don’t even feel good after eating it!
So it is time to admit my addiction to ice cream and put an end to it. I am so focussed and on point with my workouts. I haven’t missed a workout in 14+ months now so I know I have the strength somewhere to get this cold, sweet mental taste out of my head.
I am bigger than the multi scoop rich tasting cones. I am stronger than the thick icy rich moo lattes. I am going to conquer this battle.
Royally Fit gave me an idea in a weekly challenge this past few weeks. Every time I think of ice cream I’m going to do 20 push ups or 100 sit ups. Abs are better than ice cream right?
