I know it's been a few weeks and you see the title ice cream. I'm having a night in, finished a book, and about to get into some writing. So bare with me and my boredom. I know recently I posted about the pre-diabetic diagnosis. I have a major sweet tooth and since I've been eating healthier some of the sweets I used to enjoy makes me feel well for a lack of better words, blah. I've lost about 7lbs with my boyfriend laughing when I rewarded myself at 5lbs with buying Beauty and the Beast DVD. At this point I think there is more Mt. Dew than blood in his body so when I say laugh it isn't at the new lifestyle I've been inflecting on him, but the fact I rewarded myself with a DVD.
I've been reading the labels, and I've tried both cauliflower and whole wheat pizza. There's been other changes, but I'll spare you the long list because it's not really interesting. I'll be visiting my family in New Jersey for a little over a week/two weeks. I'm hoping that I can stay strong and keep going with the progress. I'm hoping it's going well, I can't get my blood retested until November. However, I keep saying "healthy" ice cream ads. I got sucked in and looked into the Halo Top ice cream. They aren't sold at my food store so I had to go to Walmart when I was in town spending money on plants again (I might have a slight problem).
The ice cream was more than I'd like. I typically go generic or look for the best buy. Thankfully there is a rebate on it on IB app. I got vanilla bean and red velvet because the Walmart by me was cleaned out. I must have missed some memo or something about it. I really wanted Oatmeal Cookie because I've been craving oatmeal cookies, but they were out of it. Opening the containers not that long ago I was shocked that one was up to the lid, while the other had a chunk out of it. There was a plastic seal so I know someone didn't eat it than put it back.
Can you tell the difference? I know it's with the vanilla is hard to tell. I had two spoon fulls of both just for curiosity sake. Both were creamy and so good. So far I'm not really nauseous either. I'm sure there is a catch other than the price. I've heard they cause some stomach upset-ness, but hopefully that's not the case. This week I'll be starting a book that I'm review since a long time. Now to get back to writing. :)
