Week 3: Enjoy the Flavor

Friday, June 19, 2015



When we talk flavor, I think ice cream! Am I alone? 

There is nothing better in the summer than, ice cream. OK, there is the sun, the beach and pools, but I love me some ice cream and I have definitely passed this love onto my kids! This is not going to be good for my weight loss this summer. There is something about going to the beach that makes me want to stop for ice cream on the way home...this wouldn't be a problem if we didn't frequent the beach a few times a week! Anyway, can you tell I am thinking about ice cream?? 

On to the purpose of this post....#ETHANproject, Week 3: Enjoy the Flavor

Here are the details of the challenge..

Because I think about ice cream a lot in the summer and because I am trying to lose weight, I decided that I would buy some ice cream to keep in the freezer. Usually I don't keep ice cream in the freezer, because if I have it in there I will eat it. Well, let's be honest, in the summer I am eating it whether it is in the freezer or not, so I might as well keep it on hand to save us 1) some money and 2) some calories, because if I go to the local ice cream place, chances are good I am not just going to get a kiddie size dish of ice cream. Once I get there everything looks so good! So I went to the store and bought the stuff to make ice cream at home and the first night we had some ice cream sundaes! 

The kids were super excited!! To go with the challenge, I bought my favorite kind to have the kids try something new. Friendly's Watermelon sherbet. Anyone else tried this? I was super psyched to see it at the store and immediately knew that was what I was bringing home! Then I went with vanilla as well, just in case the kids didn't like the sherbet! We had the choice of sugar cone of waffle dish, whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles and we all created our own sundaes! 


 

So what are you going to do this week to ENJOY the FLAVOR? I want to hear all about it!

This is my chalk board in the entryway because TODAY is the last day of school!! 

Olivia is getting out of school at Noon and we are hitting the beach to celebrate! 




Now I am off to weigh in this morning. Since I didn't go last week, I decided to go today so that we can all sleep in tomorrow! Wish me luck! 

Have a great Friday and an excellent weekend! 
See you all back here Monday for Weigh in Monday

  1. Ice cream is my nemesis. I love it more than I can describe but if it's in my house, it'll be devoured, so I totally feel you on that. Haha!

    1. I am shocked that this ice cream has lasted as long as it has! Maybe it is because we have also gone out to ice cream...oh summer!!

  5. I love sherbet, always so refreshing! I don't think I've ever had watermelon sherbet though, it sounds amazing! I have had watermelon Italian ice and I enjoyed that quite a bit, of course, with watermelon flavor what's not to like. ;)

  7. I am the same way, if I have it in the house I WILL eat it! lol I am trying hard to live by the mantra "I eat to live, not live to eat." Sometimes that doesn't help though ;) Thanks for being part of the #ETHANproject. Hasn't it been great so far?! PS...Congrats on your weight loss so far!!!
