I have been thinking about Halloween and trying to read other bogs, articles, tips, etc. on how to avoid the candy this weekend. I am still not sure if it is better for ME to just not have ANY altogether, or should I allow myself to just have one small thing. Looking at my past history with temptation, I think it would work better for me to just not let any candy pass my lips and bring a lot of fruit or crunchy things that night, since usually once I get the taste of the tempting candy on my tongue, I end up going nuts after that.
Afterwards, I plan to sit down with my son and pick out the "good stuff' that he can keep and toss the stuff that's not work it, like lollipops and sticky stuff that will stick to his teeth (we're having cavity issues with him anyway). then I will aloow him to take one treat with him every day in his lunch box. Maybe if there is a lot of it, I can bring it to my office
that's another issue - the office treats. thet are having some sort of potluck here on Friday, where I'm sure there will be a lot of candy as well as home made treats. I woudl like to try to avoid it, but usually the potluck spread is laid out very close to where I sit. I can either bring in something healthy myself, or just avoid the potluck and make sure that I cook up something for myself for lunch that I know I will look forward to. A can of soup is just not going to cut it and will make me move towarsd the potluck, so I found a yummy sounding recipe from Chef Meg on here today for Parm. Chicken with Tomato Basil Salad that I think I am going to make special for myslef to bring to work on Friday.
I will be strong this time and I will make it to my 12/31/10 goal!
