Incentive to get fitter

I got these hiking pants from REI today. North Face Paramount Porter. They are convertible, so you can have pants, capris, or shorts anytime. I usually never try on clothing before I buy them, and this time is no exception. I picked out a size 10, and figured if I fit them now, great!, if not, I should fit in the future! Alas, twas the latter that came true. So these $45 pants will have to wait for me to get thinner first. But they do seem pretty comfy after I tried cramming my tummy bulges into them. Great fabric plus a ton of good reviews online. So yeah, I'll let you know when I can fit into them. Wish me luck!

Edit: I just realized that I just posted an entry on eating ice cream (twice!) and then saying in this post that I want to lose weight, hahaahhhaha... okay fine, I'll try not to make ice cream so often! =P

Almond vanilla ice cream

What do you do if you purposely don't buy ice cream in the supermarkets because you're trying to be healthy but then you're stressing out the day before meeting your advisor and you NEED ice cream?

Make it yourself! Yes, that's how desperate I got last Friday. One memory of fifth grade was making ice cream in a ziplock bag. So naturally I had to google it and woila, so simple! Since I was back in Berkeley, I had more resources and luckily I actually had everything I needed: cream, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, ice, and salt. And to even one-up the recipe, I added almond extract. So I ended up with such a good almond vanilla ice cream in only 15-20 minutes! Yuuuuuum!

I have wonderful beginner's luck at making things, and so of course it turned out perfect! (Not so great the second time, I ended up drinking it. =) )
