Bye Bye for Now

I am getting married in just 2 weeks! While I refuse to starve myself and don't feel like I need to be super skinny, I do want to feel healthy and happy on my wedding day.

So I have decided to swear off two of my best friends until the wedding: cake and ice cream.

I generally eat pretty healthily, but believe that life is also about moderation and pleasure. Unfortunately when it comes to cake (frosting really) and ice cream I can't seem to be moderate.

I probably have ice cream at least 5 days a week. With my activity level that would be totally fine if I stuck to a single serving. But I don't. I have one bowl, and then go back for another, and sometimes another one after that. Moderation fail.

I've been working out really, really hard. In fact, I am so sore from my personal training session yesterday that I had to slide down the stairs on my butt this morning. This is something that I usually have to do the day after a marathon. It's silly to sabotage all that hard work by sitting on the couch and eating 3 bowls of ice cream every night.

This is not to say that there is anything wrong with cake or ice cream as part of your regular diet. It is just that I can't seem to find balance when it comes to eating them. So, I am issuing myself a challenge to go without them for just 2 little weeks. Then they will be all the sweeter on my wedding day!

What is your biggest weakness when it comes to food? Have you ever tried to give it up?


  1. Say it isn't so... You can't give up ice cream! What about a family visit to Wanna Waff when we get to Booth Bay?
