I swear I was only going to buy tomatoes and cucumbers

...and maybe frozen berries and low fat cool whip. But my Dominion sucks arse. Being downtown, grocery stores tend to be smaller and don't stock EVERYTHING so some items aren't always there....like low fat cool whip. So when I took a stroll down the frozen food aisle (and its icy goodness) to find it wasn't there, I was totally bummed. After a crappy day and not feeling too hot...or rather TOO hot (it was HELLLLLLLA hot in the Tdot), I wanted a little treat at the end of my day. I sucked it up and did my 6km run last night (even though li'l Garmin said it was almost 7km - those Running Room tricksters always sending us out for longer runs...). I DESERVED something good! I knew I should have kept looking down, wallowing in my own pity, dragging my bottom lip on the floor. I do not know what possessed me to look up at the ice cream fridges. Ok, I DO know what it was. It was my old boy friends ...Ben & Jerry. BASTARDS. I did NOT expect to see what I did. Those lil f*ckers have a strawberry cheesecake flavour now. WHY MUST YOU TEMPT ME SO!?!?!?!?! yeah. Let's just say it wasn't pretty. We will not discuss the nutritional value of that little container here...but let's hope my half clinic speeds up the process and we run that half tonight (hell, let's make it a full) because I could sure use the activity to burn off last night's ...er....indiscretion. ooooooooooh - but a reason for ice cream (and cake and celebration and all that other good stuff...) Today is mommy's birthday!!!!! Big hugs and smooches to her - I lub you!

Those Bastards! I know this isn't what you want to hear - but what I love most about your blog is how funny you are - you make me laugh out loud all the time!

Hope that you get a chance run off all those extra calories tonight!

I'm laughing to myself here, trying not to draw attention to the fact that I'm reading blogs and not doing work! Thanks Marie, you're gonna get me in trouble!

Hope you enoyed your B&J, you earned every bite my dear.

My Dominion is so small too! Sometimes I like to drive to the Loblaws at Dupont and Bathurst - it's so nice there! Or walk to the Loblaws on the Queens Quay at lunch... so big and so nice. Grocery store HEAVEN!

First Subway, then the Mini Eggs and now Ben and Jerry. All of 'em, BITCHES!

Ice cream is ALWAYS a HUGE temptation for me too! Although I will admit that I have never tried Ben and Jerry's. Especially in the summer, nothing better than ice cream. We all have those set backs, just keep on keepin on!
