I had a few of my favorites, dark choclate and carmel apple candy corn; but I checked the calorie value and didn't over-indulge. We made chilli and instead of tasting it all way through I used a trick my father in law taught me and judged the seasoning by smell !
I'm a little nervous about Thanksgiving to be honest, but I've committed myself to an exercise plan and a buddy and I hold each other accountable for daily exercise. I will also lean more toward eating the proteins and veggies. I'm not nervous at all about the desserts. I'll be making everything at my house and I'll make desserts that other people like but I don't necessarily care to eat.
I stumbled over the Halloween season. My new goals are to be mindful of what I eat. Stop and think BEFORE I eat, especially unhealthy choices - do I REALLY want it; do I REALLY need it; and most importantly, how will I feel afterwards? I have this posted in my sight starting today!

My youngest son and great-niece handed out candy and I did my best to stay away from the bowl. I did eat a couple pieces of chocolate but fit them into my nutrition counts. I also made sure to buy more candy that kids like and I don't.
