I did pretty good. I went for a walk right after work (4 miles), then fixed a good dinner and stayed in to watch a movie. I did have one 'fun size' bag of m&m's, but that was all.

So how'd everyone do? I did really well and feel great about the healthier approach that I took towards Halloween this year. Yes I had 6 toosie rolls but I felt it better to have a serving then deny myself all together!

I don't give out candy any more either, and most of the treating is done in the business area of town anyway. I don't have children at home anymore so not much candy in the house.

I don't give out candy anymore. Last year I gave out free frosty coupons to all the kids.As for the left over candies for all of you with it in the house, I say just throw it away and take out the trash before bedtime. That way it's not around to tempt you. If you have the will power to throw it away, you have the will power to succeed. I don't blame anyone for giving into temptation once in awhile since we are all humans but for those of you who can't just indulge yourself with one or two pieces I suggest you trash the left overs.

Happy Halloween! Did anyone dress up at work today? I did! I'm a Rennaisance Wench. Woo Hoo - only one in the building in a costume too! Double Woo Hoo....told my co-workers what a bunch of scrooges!

Not worried about today like many - worried about the leftovers & my 3 kids buckets o'candy tomorrow! Can't you donate it somewhere? I'll bring most to my work & give some to my mom for her work to keep it out of the house.

My boys don't trick or treat anymore, so I won't have all the candy around the house. yay!!

The candy bucket is full of warheads, which I won't eat, so maybe I will do OK tonight.

Good luck to everyone.

Good Luck everyone! I too, hope that I get rid of all the candy. Luckily, I have gotten my candy binge out of the way and I'm not even feeling tempted (at this moment anyway). Hope that it stays that way...... I put the candy in a well travelled spot in the house and my kids and hubby usually take care of it from there.

I found these cool little cups with funcky color playdough to give out this year. My mon like to give the fun bags of microwave popcorn or prezels.

What is going to be tough is Thursday morning at the office. All the staff brings in the letfover candy and leaves in the break room. There will be a mountain of goodies that will last for days, since we only have a staff of 25. Good luck to all today and for the holidays. Keep a water bottle handy or try a cup of nice chocolate or vanilla chi tea with a little milk.

Keep It Real! Keep It Positive!

here is my halloween story... I was driving in today and of course it was dark. I went through several miles of fog; this is where i hit a teenage deer Oct 8. The fog was lapping onto my hood. THen something was trying to CLIMB onto my hood!! I was looking for the eject button when I realized it was the tape from my cracked headlight coming loose.

It doesn't matter if you believe you can or you can't, you're right.

I wish everyone Good luck today with all the temptations that will be placed in our way.

I am amazed at how much candy was placed in my path when I went into the pharmacy yesterday it's kind of ridiculous. It seems like every corner I turned yesterday there was a candy display 1/2 off!

Since the temptations will never go away I hope everyone puts on their blinders and repeatedly thinks or chants 'I don't have to give into these temptations - today I am making the choice not to.'

Keep in mind to not be emotionally hard on yourself if you do falter today just start again tomorrow and instead of beating yourself up workout and burn the excess calories right off.

I try and remember only I can change my life there is no pill, no secret, nothing but my own mindset that will make a change for me.
