Well shit y'all, Halloween is tomorrow and you know what that means. CANDY! Candy everywhere. I have spoken of my weakness for candy and sugar in past posts. And though I have better control now, I still struggle with this addiction. Put me in front of a box of Milk Duds and I won't come up for air till all those little bastards are gone. I can't even think of a Milk Way bar without salivating.
So here's how it's going down in Formerly Fat Mom's house this year. On my part, I'm going to exercise some good old fashioned self-control and will power, and stay the hell out of my kid's candy bucket. Seriously. I am still crawling my way back from my summer weight gain (I'm down 6 pounds so far) and I just got myself back into the swing of my workouts and good eating habits. I feel so much better than I did a month ago. Going on a sugar binge will make me feel horrible - physically and mentally. I've also been reading about all the terrible poisonous ingredients that are in commercial candy and that has helped deter my cravings. Education is power. (Though, come PMS time, I probably won't care about the GMO corn syrup in the Reese's Peanut Butter cups...)
|Oh Peanut M&Ms, I'll miss you the most.|
Wish me luck...
