Easter Candy

Sunday, April 14, 2013

There are two big "Candy Seasons" in the grocery market: Easter & Halloween.

There two things I have a really hard time NOT buying: 1)lots of books at the book store & 2)lots of candy at the supermarket.

I bought some Easter Candy and have been going back and forth between eating candy and feeling guilty and exercising my butt off. LOL

I don't feel as bad about it as I used to. I figure that in the scheme of things if I can just force myself to keep exercising the diet thing tends to follow for me.

I've been fluctuating between 3 to 4 lbs, depending upon hormones & cheating upon my diet with candy. But, it ISN'T completely out of control like it used to be so I don't beat myself up about it as much.

When I first started this journey a year ago I denied myself any of the sweet treats that I loved and I did really well kick starting things with that mentality. However, now that I am trying to continue with the program I've realized I have to give in to the sweets sometimes or I'll go WAY in the other direction.

This is never going to be a natural/automatic thing for me. I love candy & processed foods too much.


To bad you cannot substitute candy for fruit rather than vice-versa. Ha ha.

As always, keeping on, keeping on...

    portion control is the biggest struggle with sweets, i so measure it out before i go to work so that helps me get a sugar fix but also keeps me in proper portion.

    You are doing so awesome. A little treat here and there will not kill ya...will it? A slight indulgence hear and there is not wrecking your nutrition plan, way to go. Also you are maintainig your weight through healthy exercise. I have a small plan to avoid the store as much as possible to avoid these temptations, but being reasonable you still have to go. So I try to stick to the perimeter of the store away from the treats in the center. Though my sister was generous with her Easter candy to me. I am still working on cleaning that from my apartment.. though those jelly beans ARE calling for me :)!

    You forgot Valentine's Day!! Another Holiday where the candy sings "Come hither!" Get behind me, Satan! Hard candy and stuff like jelly beans and gummies could sit there forever and not affect me one bit, but don't get between me and chocolate covered nuts!

    We are still working on the Easter candy here! I eat a piece or two a day. My hubby went crazy with the candy! He bought too much (and ate too much, in my opinion, lol). It's too bad they can't put fiber and vitamins in candy so we could feel good about eating it. Happy Easter! Thanks for the blog!
