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!
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
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.
