Ice Cream on the Menu


I seriously need to get serious about getting more healthy!  My husband and two of my children picked me up for "lunch" today - - we went to a local candy/ice cream store downtown and had - - yup - - ice cream and candy for lunch.   I know.  I know.    I'm so ashamed.   But after devouring the yummy sweet stuff we realized that we really were kind of hungry for "real" food.  So we went to a local pizza place and had lunch.   Yes!  Pizza is "real" food.   Honest.  It is. 

Now I feel like I need a nap, but I still have to work this afternoon.   And I guess a nap isn't really what I need to be doing anyway.   I should be getting on a treadmill, or a bike, or putting on my walking shoes - - but I don't want to.   So there!   

I need a pep talk!!   Someone tell me it's okay eat ice cream for lunch.

  1. Ice cream is okay for lunch and so is pizza. Have a more healthy dinner and a good breakfast. Hit the treadmill for awhile some time. Get some good sleep this weekend. BTW what kind of ice cream, I'm a little jealous.

  3. It's OK to eat ice cream and candy for lunch and pizza as well. I'm so tired of people being made to feel 'guilty' for eating what they want. You only live once!!

  4. Of course it's okay! Icecream for lunch, popcorn for dinner, cake for breakfast, they're all valid lifestyle choices.

  8. For me, ice cream is a treat once in awhile. I can't afford it for lunch! I'm better off w/ fish and salads. Not as much fun, but there ya' go. :-)
