Push that Tush -- The Voice of Reason

Sunday, October 06, 2013




I took a run to the supermarket last night....I wanted ice cream.
I got there and I told myself...only pick up a pint
I looked at the selection and I told myself...get one with no corn syrup
I looked at those options and I asked myself...what is guar gum
I walked around the store and I asked myself...what the heck are you doing
I found the aisle with the peanuts and I picked up the jar
ingredients...Peanuts
the sign said: "on sale $2 off"
I put back the ice cream...I got a bag of Apples
And last night I treated myself to some peanuts with apples and a pot of tea.

It's nice when your grown up side takes over and talks some sense into you.

...I hope the people in the supermarket who heard me talking to myself
think I had one of those ear phones.
Damn ... I should have thought of that sooner.... emoticon oh well

Have fun today emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love peanuts and apples. I do use guar gum though. It's a thickening agent and it or Xanthan gum are in tons of processed foods. Of course I am cutting back on the processed foods so I talk to myself in the store a lot too. Mumbling, arguing, squalling at all the foods I can't have.

    One of the things my DH is best at is either a great thing or an awful thing... but he makes me feel guilty if I have ice cream. So I never ever buy it. Ever... But if he were to go out of town, I'd have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner... what can I say... I do have it once every couple of months... either as dessert in a restaurant, or while visiting my Mom, or I may even stop at Twistee Treat (which is only 2.6 miles away and on my way to everywhere....) But keeping it out of the house does help me... My name is Patti and I am an icrecreamaholic....

Good choices! Give yourself a big "atta woman"!!

    Sheryl you have a great wit and make all of your "experiences" funny! Great choice by the way. I guess if you get ice cream, it should be real ice cream. Do you know I always wanted to try to make SP Banana Ice cream.....Sounds great and it doesn't have any weird ingredients in it!

You sound like me, I talk to myself quite a bit, although I don't mind what people think. I know I am not crazy...... emoticon

Have a great week to come!

    Congratulations for making it through that mine field! Yes, it's true: all you need is an ear phone and you can talk to yourself and no one will know the difference. Opens a whole world of possibilities, doesn't it?

    good choice...I made enough black bean fiesta salad to last all week for school lunches instead of processed quick stuff. Took me almost 3 hours to cut up all the veggies to make it. Wish I weren't so slow at it.

    My DH hates it when I start reading the labels! He knows I will put it down 99% of the time. Then I start going for the sales or cheaper brand (even thou it has the same ingredients in it), he then realizes there is nothing stopping me from eating a healthier. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love this blog! I understand totally what you did at the grocery store--I've been known to pick up a goodie and put it back--several times, after circling the aisles. Apples and peanuts are definitely better--go you!
