Strategy To Avoid Halloween Sugar Overload
Thursday, October 28, 2010
For Halloween sugar overload. I have a strategy in place.
For the month of September I was on a no sugar challenge. I avoided candy for one month. I know that I can do it for one month, so one holiday should be easy. I plan to avoid all candy EXCEPT Trader Joe’s 72% dark chocolate. 3 squares are one serving size. I have started (this week) having either one, or up to three squares each evening. So when I am faced with the work candies, I will not be as tempted knowing that I have my "good for you" chocolate waiting for me each evening. I even took a huge knife and cut the bar into squares.
The other thing I did was ask my boss not to bring in his plastic cauldron which he fills with the Hershey (good) chocolate mini bars. He agreed not to do this this year. Each person in my office needs to lose a different amount of weight. I see this as starting out the holiday season on the right note. And it saves him $$. Plus those candies are available all year long, no need to overindulge just because the stores are overflowing with bags right now.
