Gratitude: I

I is for Ice Cream

Ice cream is my favorite sweet to indulge in, and when I started on my healthy journey, it felt like it would also have to be something I would soon be giving up.  Part of growing as a person was realizing that I could buy my ice cream and eat it too.  Making healthier choices for myself allowed me to not have to give up my favorite thing, while at the same time it really made me appreciate how special ice cream was as a treat.  Learning to plan, and to portion my indulgences was an important step in realizing that being healthy and taking care of myself doesn’t need to be a punishment, and that despite all my thinking, I deserve good things.
