Life is all about balance, people. Finding it can be extremely hard. Right now I am trying to find that perfect balance between the perfect amount (if any) and too much.
Let me explain…
Last night, I had a Pampered Chef party. I could have any type of party I wanted, but the post my friend made on Facebook was about an ice cream sundae themed party, and I’m down with that, so I went with it.
It was a mistake. Granted, I made plans for this party before I came to the conclusion that I had problems with overeating, but it was a mistake nonetheless.
Apparently ice cream with all the toppings you could ever dream of (brownie bits, strawberries, peanuts, pineapple, bananas, chocolate chips, cookie bits, etc) is a trigger for me to want to eat EVERYTHING.ON.THE.PLANET.
Then I came home and my hubby (God love him) made s’mores over the gas stove in the house. 🙂 I did not have s’mores, but I did proceed to eat several marshmallows and some gluten-free cookies that I had on the counter…along with the chocolate bar he didn’t finish.
The stink of it all is that I actually did good with the amount of ice cream I ate!! Which when I think about it, is odd, because ice cream is one of the foods I usually binge on. But I went into it knowing that so I was prepared!
So, yeah… I think I should probably stay away from ice cream for the forseeable future, if not permanently. If I cannot find a good balance, I sill stay away from it altogether.
And I’m making a fresh start today. 6.12.15 Day 1! Let’s Do This!
See ya soon… xx
