Guilty pleasures worth saving

Recently I’ve come to realize my love of ice cream and doughnuts doesn’t just sabotage my waist, it’s also sabotaging my diet.

Some of my coworkers and I were talking today about how expensive groceries are getting and how much we spend on things in general. In my case clothes and food are my two main extravagant indulgences.

I’m not a shoe girl like Carrie, but I love my skirts. I love the way they sway, I like the fabrics, and the fact that I live in Florida and shorts are inappropriate for work makes them a bonus. Since I’ve decreased my wardrobe, I noticed a few of my old favorites fit a little snugger around my waist. While I’d like to say that extra tension is due to feminine bloating that little internal voice is saying not all of it.

There’s just something about that little neon hot now sign that beckons me to go and get doughnuts that melt in your mouth when they’re warm. It wouldn’t be so bad if I would only eat 1 or 2, but when those are soft and warm you can inhale half a dozen before you even realize it.

Ice cream is the other temptation that’s hard to resist. My favorite flavor is anything that has chocolate in it, chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate and coconut, Carmel, marshmallow raspberry…. Anything with chocolate. It’s the perfect snack for someone living in a state where summer starts in March and doesn’t end until October.

I can’t say that I’m given up my favorite sweets completely, but I’m definitely going to cut back on them a bit and instead pick up those objects or torture that most people like to call roller blades. Actually I can’t say I didn’t have any fun blading, it was just the stopping that was hard on me.
