I cheated on Dr. Arthur Agatston with Ben & Jerry. Dr. A, will you ever forgive me? It was a long day. Work was killing my mind. I had a headache. I knew I had to go to the grocery to get sodas and yogurt and Lean Cusines so I could stay on your diet. But I just didn’t want to go. I wanted to collapse on the coach. The only thing that could get me off my ass was the thought of consuming a pint of mint-chocolate ice-cream. Yum. It was delicious. Of course, it was also about 1040 calories. Ouch!
This is the first time I’ve eaten ice cream since I read The South Beach Diet, so it’s the first time I’ve realized just exactly how bad it was for me. But it was good and I don’t regret it. I’ve been pretty damn good about sticking to the diet. What’s important is that I continue to stick to it despite this digression. Also, I can’t make such digressions a habit if I want to hit my goal weight anytime soon.
