Note to Self…

A pint of ice cream is NOT a serving. I know it looks all cute and convenient. Just pop the top off, grab a spoon and go to town but seriously, woman. You know better.

Next time scoop out a serving, add some fresh fruit and enjoy it. Don’t inhale it like it’s going out of style simple because you like the way it feels in your mouth.

Now… go to bed. Early day tomorrow.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    So, so true. The sad thing is, now you’ve made me want ice cream! [sigh] :0)

    ugh…totally understand. Our skinny friend is visiting and he made the most delicious chocolate chip cookies. I have forbidden them from letting me have more than one. I have a weigh in tomorrow…totally not blowing it with cookies!

    Artic Zero makes a pint of ice cream for about 150 calories. I eat the whole thing. :)

    Turtle Mountain’s Coconut milk ice cream all the way. No dairy and no soy. And super delicious!

    I hear ya! But then again, I’m still trying to learn a serving is 1/2 cup, NOT 1/2 gallon.

    We pretty much can’t have ice cream in the house. If it’s there, it’s gone in a flash.

    OK … now I want a pint of New York Super Fudge Chunk. (Not really … but I might if I don’t stop thinking about it soon.)

    Well, I think that happens to even the best of us from time to time. It’s funny you mention it now though, because I recent finished a book called Mindless Eating (review forthcoming!) that talks a lot about this kind of thing – that the amount we eat has a lot to do with packaging, plate size, etc., and not with how hungry we are.

    That’s exactly why I have to buy those silly little single serving containers of ice cream!

    Yeah, that’s my downfall, too. Right now there are two pints of Ben & Jerry’s in the freezer. But my son made it clear that they are HIS. And as long as he is 5-foot-2 and 110 pounds he can go to town on them. I like those little cups of Skinny Cow ice cream. Each one is 150 and you get to finish the whole thing.

    Those pesky serving sizes!!!!

    Oh, but for me a pint IS a serving. Hence Ben and Jerry are only invited to our house a few times a year. I can’t help it, ice cream is my favorite food and my #1 indulgence!

    Oh, yes. Been there, done that. Love how you approach it as a note, a reminder, not an opportunity to beat yourself up! That is what our ongoing eating lessons are all about. Experience-learn-adjust…
