Tapering for me = one less day of running a week. My response? I polished off two pints of gelato in the last 5 days or so. I hardly ever have ice cream at home and especially not in the winter (it makes me cold!).
But last week, I felt the need to get some caramel gelato. And when I got to the store, I encountered the choice of Sea Salt Caramel or Caramel Cookie Crunch. How could I choose?
And now they are gone :(
Now, I am fine with ice cream and other treats in moderation. I usually eat a well-balanced diet and I never feel guilty about splurging. I also never weigh myself. I cannot say for sure, but I am beginning to understand why people tend to gain weight during the taper.
And I am only sad that I have no more ice cream in the house!
