lol sean - very cool that you supported yourself to get out of the house and go for a walk - i find this definitely assist when we are allowing a point to become 'charged up' with a lot of energy wherein it permeates our entire environment - best to remove ourselves from the environment so we can 'clear our head'.
At the moment it's not 'just a fucking ice cream' - it's everything that we have associated with ice cream that makes it more that 'just fucking ice cream' because we allow it to be special, more than life - ice cream, yeah, it is simply ice cream, innocent in its expression, however we fucked-up humans tend to taint life with our thoughts/feelings/emotions to such a degree that we aren't able to simply be with ice cream and enjoy ice cream as one and equal to ourselves - something that I realized for myself as well, within the point of stopping sugar, is not to trick oneself into believing that once one 'realizes' that ice cream is innocent and 'i'll just eat it as one and equal to myself' to not follow that, because if we have to 'talk ourselves into it' that is a definite red flag! It is using knowledge and information to manipulate ourselves, to con ourselves, to deceive ourselves and our point of self-honest support.
So, what I see is its best to walk the point of no sugar for several months, if not years depending on how much energy one has created around sugar/any point until on re-visits it again - to really commit ourselves in facing the point completely - oftentimes I find that when I consider re-visiting, I'm not even interested anymore.
Cool that you are facing the point so directly and not 'feeding into it' - lol - because we know where that path leads, and it's not an enjoyable place to be.
Self-forgiveness in the moment one sees one is rationalizing with oneself is definitely assisting in diffusing the energy that is wanting to build up to a point of accumulated possession. Self-forgiveness, and breath will keep you here - will keep you 'safe and sound' - lol.
