One of our BLC assignments was to blog about successes. After the past week of reading blogs about the demonic Halloween candy experiences of some Spark friends, I guess that a really positive NSV is that I didn't eat any Halloween candy, nor did I actually want to eat it. We didn't have Trick or Treat at home since we were on our way back from AZ, but there is plenty of Halloween candy currently in the house since DH uses the holiday as an excuse to create a personal stockpile which he "hides" in his home office (everyone knows it's the third drawer down in the file cabinet, lol). I've also seen it on the counters at every place I've been during the last week - rental car companies, doctor's offices, stores, etc., and it was not tempting me in the least. Although I never went really crazy on Halloween candy, that never stopped me from mindlessly picking up a piece wherever offered, or raiding our own trick or treat stash during the course of Halloween evening. So this current apathy toward the sugary side of this holiday is quite encouraging!
