I don't feel guilty at all.
That's not even an 'okay to cheat a bit' kind!! Ooh so devilish. I try to only buy the stuff with whole, quality ingredients (Breyers all natural Chocolate or Neapolitan...mmmmm). Anything else is a waste of money for us- we end up all bloated and sick and miserable on the chemically stuff. We are more in maintenance mode than a lot around here though. Not a that much weight to lose and pretty dang active (enough that I feel it if I'm too low carb). I feel like I should be more guilty about my ice cream habit than I really am.
With such a strong fruit base, that is a REALLY great clean ice cream recipe! I think I will invest in a maker someday, but not until I'm not suffering to save up every month. And can fix my bike.
Mmm it's yummy too. I have found quite a few recipes out there that you can freeze and just stir often as they freeze. You don't need a machine for it! I tend to make stuff up and substitute at will and then just cross my fingers that things will work out. They usually do!
I think I could have cut the honey to 3/4 cup. It's pretty darn sweet. I'm also wondering if with something tropical like mango, I could maybe nix the honey in favor of banana and go totally sweetener free.
You won't know until you try!
If your body is willing, your mind can push it to do some amazing things.
I have failed miserably at getting to sleep at a reasonable hour lately. It has been mostly for the noble cause of filling my social/ personal relationship cup to overflowing. Catching up with old friends, having ranging and very bonding conversations with family members. Worth it? A resounding yes. Physically taxing? Yes to that too. I've been dragging my groggy noggin out of bed the past few mornings and cursing the dog for needing to pee at 5 am and kids for waking up by 7 and making outrageous early morning requests..... like food. Tonight I resume my quest for reasonable bedtime habits.
I didn't get to run twice last week, despite multiple attempts to plan short night runs with Alicia. I got plenty of other more "primal" activities in, but I just need 2 runs a week now! And this week we have 2 planned running nights, but one of them will be sans yours truly, in favor of my visiting cousin's baby shower. I may have to find another time to slip in a 2 miler or something.
I think I need to cut back on our pork products again. *sigh* They are just very budget friendly compared to others and I get really sick of chicken. Gosh I wish good fish and quality beef were cheaper.
Speaking of food expenses, I wish our boys huge appetites reflected in their physical growth. They eat a TON. We've decided to start giving them regular quantities of milk- it makes calves grow, right? They love it. I just wish we had more ready access to raw milk and that it was cheaper!
I think I had just the right amount of chocolate too spambot. Glad we concur.
I've been having massive ice cream cravings. I mean, it is the summer! Ice cream is cold and delicious! My friend Joe came by and harvested plums off of the tree in my backyard and promised to make me some sugar-free plum ice cream. I'm so excited.

Yo check it, it's like this: I think your boys will grow when it's time for them to grow. Are they not healthier than 90% of other kids? Do they get 2500+ calories a day? WLB is 5'11" 160 lbs. so it's not like it's in their genes to be big boys.
Take a chill pill, yo.
If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
