I’m drawing a blank on a good title. Sorry dudes.
First off, I just want to say THANKS SO MUCH for all the awesome motivation and kind words having to do with the Shuffle last weekend! I truly appreciate it and love that I have a support system to keep me going! You all are fantastic!
Secondly, look at this little treat I have chillin’ in my freezer now:When Annie invited me over for dinner, it was last minute, so I had nothing that I could quickly whip up to bring over. So I went the ice cream route. Because really, who doesn’t love this stuff? And I really wanted to try the Girl Scout-inspired Samoa ice cream. So I run to my friendly neighborhood grocery store and start to peruse the frozen aisles for yummy frozen treats. There was a sale on Edy’s- buy one get TWO free. What the…??? Are you serious? Now, my first reaction was obvious- ”omg, what an awesome deal!” Then I started thinking. I live by myself. What am I going to do with three cartons of ice cream? I know it keeps well, but isn’t that overkill? Maybe I could give one to Annie? Let’s call and see if she wants one… Ok, no answer. Hmmm…. What to do?
I ended up only getting one carton. This could start the argument that I am being wasteful and inefficient with my money. But hear me out. I don’t eat that much ice cream. And I know that if I had three cartons in my possession, I would start eating it and not stop until it was completely gone. Which would take about 32.67 hours. Give or take an hour. I know myself enough to tell you this is based on truth. That’s why I just don’t keep it around. I have no problems with ice cream- let’s be clear. My problem is I love it too much. And can’t keep my servings in moderation. I’ll start with a bowl, finish it, and then be standing by the freezer getting “just a few more spoonfuls”. So now, when I want it, I have to go out of my way to track down an ice cream place and pay more to have it. That way, I have to sit and think if I really want it that badly. Anyone else do this? Or am I just crazy? Would you have bought the ice cream? And if you did, seriously- how do you keep that level of self control? Because when I keep any form of processed sugar in the house, it doesn’t stick around for long…
When I went to check out, the girls asked me if I knew about the sale and just couldn’t believe I didn’t want to go back and get two more- since they were free and all. No thanks miss, I would rather not be waddling by the end of the week. Because that would happen. For real.
But now, I just have the one. And because I only have one, I’m really going to try and make it last. Because it’s sooooo good. And now I feel like I didn’t make myself completely miss out on the Girl Scout cookies. Score!
And on a final note, after doing some tag surfing/google reading/commenting/stalking/etc, I noticed that a few people are mentioning the Race to Wrigley on April 24th. I’m planning on doing it, and if I can’t (knock on wood), I will still be there (spending part of the weekend in that area for random reasons). SO, I am suggesting a meetup afterwards for any bloggers that are doing the run or are going to be in the area. I’ll bring it up again closer to the actual day, but if you’re interested, give me a shout out. I’m excited at the chance to meet some people! You know you want to. So yeah, let’s do it!
Short leg report: feeling a little better. Still staying off of it more than normal. Did arm weights last night so I wouldn’t feel like a complete bum. :)
Let’s pretend it’s not the crappiest day of the week and have a good one!
