Tricking Halloween's Hidden Pounds
Thursday, November 01, 2012
Well I've been doing well in September and October. My kids have had so many athletics practices that I've been hitting the gym quite a bit.
I also kept Halloween candy out of the house in the many months before the holiday. The stores had candy out in August. I'm not living in some isolated outpost where I have to buy it when it comes in and hoard it until October 31. In fact the stores still had candy on Halloween.
Actually, I went one further and bought Playdoh to give out. The kids who came by were thrilled to get it (especially the teens) and I wasn't at all tempted to snack. I did get a Reese's fix in thanks to a friend who handed out treats with us. But that's over too.
For the first time in years I lost weight in the fall. I don't know that that has ever happened.
Back to normal.
