A book club friend gifted me a pint of super high premium chocolate gelato yesterday. It is from a local gourmet shop so I know it will be divine.
I tried offering it to the others in the book club yesterday, but there were sooooo many delectable treats already on the buffet table, I had no takers.
What to do with the gelato? It likely has a MILLION calories in it!
I simply put it in the freezer.... and will figure it out.
I am "interval sparking" Monday-Wednesday of this week, so I know it won't pass my lips at least until Thursday. But, I prefer coming up with a better plan than that.
The "old me" would have eaten the entire pint myself last night " in preparation" for the diet limitations of my "intervaL sparking" experiment.
The "evolving Sparkpeople me" knows I cannot eat the whole thing solo, but I am unwilling to throw it out or to re-gift it.
What to do?
Perhaps the next hot day I will invite a few neighbors over to sit on the porch to chat over some gelato. That way I will get the benefit of tasting it but only consume a fraction of the calories--and get the added benefit of visiting with the neighbors!
I know many will advise me to just get rid of the gelato, right?
In an odd sort of way, I think how I am handling it is PROGRESS--at least for me. The gelato has been in my freezer for almost 24 hours uneaten. That's progress for me.
Do you have odd sorts of ways-- like this-- to measure your healthy eating progress?
