My brother in law bought my sister a box of Lowreys chocolate covered cherries. I had two of those, plus a few low sodium chips. That's it. I was surrounded by all that candy at her place and I think I did pretty good.

I did pretty good this year. I only had one piece of my son's candy, which was low in sodium and calories and three pieces of candy corn. He wasn't sure what the candy corn was and my hubs doesn't like it, so I had to show him how to eat it and then he dove right into it. Though didn't let him have too much. I think all total I had about 80 calories and 40 mg of sodium. So not bad. Plus had an hour and a half of fast paced walking.

I live in an apartment and never get trick 'r treaters so I don't buy Halloween candy. If I want something (like a chocolate bar) through out the year, I just buy a little.

Now bags of chips are another story. One chip is never enough! I bought a box of the small Halloween snack size bags of chips last year,and I doled it out so it would last until almost the end of February. Only 80 mg of salt in the bag so not too terribly bad but still not the best.

This year I won't buy any.

This year I'm not buying any candy as we already have a bunch around. We are giving out Reese's peanut butter cause I don't like them and my son has developed an allergy to peanuts. emoticon

I used to buy bags of candy over and over again, despite us hardly having any trick or treaters in the area. We would all dive into it prior to Halloween. The last couple of years though, we buy only a minimal amount of whats on sale, as my son and hubs likes to have a little around. So I mainly go for hershey kisses, as one kiss is enough to satisfy a chocolate craving. Plus, not really into them, Though I do favor the Reese's!

Anyhow, we stopped handing out treats in our neighborhood and instead take our son, whose only 6, to one of our favorite malls, that has trick or treating. They do a mall wide trick or treating every year. It is a safe location, the costumes are tame and he has lots of fun. I am never tempted by the candy he gets, nor what we have at home. I instead look at it as lots of walking exercise (long two story mall), a nice outing and family time together, as we often go for a late dinner at one of the restaurants near the mall, where I stay in the IR frame of ordering.

TGIF to you! Halloween is tomorrow and as always, full of all kinds of temptations.

So today's challenge is to suggest healthy alternatives or your plan of attack on how to deal with all the temptations.

Are you tempted by having candy in the house?
What do you do to prevent devouring the entire candy bowl?

What do you do for the holiday? Let the suggestions commence!

Have a fantastic Friday!
