It's Halloween Week.
Monday, October 28, 2013
I waited this year until this week to get the candy for the kids. I know last year I got my candy way too early and ended up having to buy more. It seems that many people have the same idea as me this year as there was still most of candy on the shelf left in two different stores I went to on Sunday.
Now I have candy in the house. I did not stop myself from opening the bags and we've all dug into them, probably a little too much, but I did get a lot of candy, so the few kids that do show up will get candy and little packages of Annie's graham bunnies.
Fortunately Halloween is on Thursday and I won't have too long to worry about candy binging. This time of year was so hard on me last year I had to do Spark's Official Tame Your Sweet Tooth challenge to get back to normal. I know that even if I do have a candy craze this week, I know how to get back off it next week. I won't be buying any more candy after the Halloween candy is gone so I'll be fine with my fruits and veggies again next week.
Surprisingly, I'm not having as much as I may have had at one point in my life. Yes, it's still more than I should have on a normal day, but not as much as I've been able to have in the past. At one time in my life I've been able to down a whole package of candies, whether it be Fun Size Snickers or the small bag M&M's. Now I feel sick from a few handfuls and put it down.
I'm just hoping that this doesn't bring me back into the obese category this week, but I know that I can get right back on track as soon as I want, which is fortunately fairly quickly.
I hope that this week doesn't throw off too many of you either. Let's get through the candy week quickly!
