GONE WITH THE WIND
Tuesday, February 19, 2008
Last night I watched my all time favorite movie, GONE WITH THE WIND. When I watch a movie--especially one where I actually sit still and pay attention--I need to eat something. In fact if I know a good movie is coming on or if I rent a DVD, I also get something yummy to eat to go with it. Last night was no exception. By the time war was declared, I went into the kitchen and fixed a bowl of Schwan Cookies and Cream ice cream. For those of you who have never enjoyed Schwan ice cream, I feel sorry for you.
Either the ice cream didn't hit the spot or the movie was too long because before Scarlett even married Frank Kennedy, I had popped a bag of popcorn and eaten the whole thing. At least I didn't drink Pepsi with my popcorn so I saved a few calories there.
There are some temptations that are still too great for me. GONE WITH THE WIND is one of them. Spark People has made me more conscious of the food that goes into my mouth. I plan more activities so I don't spend as much time in front of the TV when I'll be tempted to eat. Last night I fell off the wagon, but I won't beat myself up. In the immortal words of Scarlett O'Hara; "Tomorrow is another day."
