Warning! Danger Ahead!!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Our local newspaper has a daily online poll; sometimes I participate, sometimes not. Today's question is:

What's your favorite leftover Easter candy?
- jelly beans
- peeps
- cadbury eggs

(jelly beans are just a bit ahead of cadbury eggs and peeps are waaaay behind.)

My vote goes for NOTHING!! Reading this poll reminds me that my coworkers will be bringing in leftover goodies when I return to work today and I need to keep reminding myself that at the end of the day I will be most unhappy with myself if I give in (not to mention the sugar crash that always occurs.)

I'm posting this for my own accountability and a reminder to myself (and anyone else who needs the same reminder) that sugar-binges are not worth the price afterward.

No sugar for me today, I'm sweet enough already!! emoticon

Have a great day!!

(An afterthought while I was in the shower: This is the first time I have posted a "Success in Advance" type of blog; I'll report back tomorrow on how I did. Now I really have accountability!!)

    I'm not crazy about any of them either. I hate Peeps. And cadbury eggs are only okay to me. The same with jelly beans.

    You can do it Sweetie Pie! This post made me realize how well I did this year too! I didn't buy anything extra for Easter, woo hoo! Here is to another whole week of staying away from Easter treats! We can do this challenge!

    Hang in there. Before my retirement, I had a difficult time avoiding the leftovers that were brought into the office. Good for you for posting this in order to be accountable.

    You ARE sweet enough! I'm proud of you for being so proactive. I can happily report that I had no Easter candy this year. It's a first. Good job my friend.

    Ha! That must be the most awesome thing about being between assignments; no well-meaning deposits from co-workers!

    You will have no problem resisting the candy. It's not what you want from your day.

    Leftover candy...bwaaaaahahahahaha!!! There is no candy leftover here...it's all on my gut and thighs.

    Good luck today. What helps me pass up candy (when I have willpower) is I ask myself if I can get it any time of year. Like those b@stard Reese eggs. I love them especially at Easter but they're Reese cups and I can get those any time of year. Same with jelly beans, Snickers/Milky Way/whatever candy bar made into an egg/rabbit shape. Now Cadbury cream eggs...those are a problem. BUT now that they've marketed "Screme Eggs" if those are your weakness just countdown for 6 months and you'll have that taste again. It's cute that I try to reason this out for you after the 20 lbs of candy I took in over the weekend.

    The candy is out of the house and I do not intend to buy any with the sales of
    leftover Easter candy. M&M's would be my choice but I can take them or leave them. Guess I'll be leaving them LOL! And you are sweet enough already. HUGS!
