After a very long day, I packed my bags for my 45 minute ride home of course depending on traffic and weather and headed home. On the way home I sighed and thought what would make me feel better? Well after pondering for a few minutes I pulled into the local ice-cream joint, I did the unthinkable for someone watching their weight. I ordered a dip of rocky road ice-cream on a waffle cone paid my $1.50 and got back into traffic. Enjoying my dip of ice-cream I took a long gingerly drive down the back roads which I normally would not do enjoying every single lick of my ice-cream cone.
Distracted by my enjoyment for my ice-cream the time and traffic zipped by as I arrived home within 45 minutes a happy and calmer Mom after a very long day. Now since ice-cream is fine in small moderations, I really did not break my diet that day. I meant to get on the treadmill when I final arrived home but after a very long day that certainly did not happen. Thank goodness for ice-cream and all the simple things in life that makes us smile.
