Rain, rain and more rain! But, I did manage to get in about 25 minutes of walking during a brief sunny break in the rain. I didn't get to run like I wanted too but, hey, anything is better than nothing.

We carved up the pumpkin tonight. I may have went a little over-board with it because it took me about around 2 hours but, it's by far my best work yet...no stencils...and...I used power tools! Rawr!

After carving up the pumpkin, I put the seeds in brine (I've taken up soaking all nuts, grains and seeds). Then I motivated myself to get in about 20 minutes on the Gazelle.

So far I've not fallen victim to "Candy Day" yet. We did buy a bag of Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses but, I've rationed them out to serving size and stashed them in an inconvenient cabinet. Here's hoping it works. I may be able to deny myself many foods in the name of health...but, all things peanut butter and candy are not on the list.

While I LOVE Halloween and it's a big holiday around our house...I'm far more excited about November 1st. I've got a Dr. appointment and they will test to see the results of the two week wait. Crossing my fingers!

Anyhow, we've got our movies to watch for Halloween so I guess I should get to it. I mean what Halloween is complete without watching Rocky Horror Picture Show?

    Your carved pumpkin is fantastic...one of the best I've ever seen. I'm still back in preschool when it comes to carving pumpkins. Actually, the last time I halfway tried to decorate one, I used a black marker. Pathetic, isn't it.

    I hope your doctor's visit went well.
