Candy Fest is OVER!

Every last bit of Halloween Candy is GONE.  I dumped it in the garbage.  As I was throwing away the candy, I noticed a Snickers bar.  I pulled it out of the garbage and I was going to eat it.  Then I stopped myself because the kids were watching me that would be a new all time low.  Pulling candy out of a garbage can is really really bad.  It is a sign that I need a sugar intervention.  The good news is, I did put it back in the trash.  Uneaten.

This is my favorite time of the year and many of my traditions involve high calorie goodness.  From Halloween to the New Year it is not unusual for me to pack on a few (a few=10) pounds in less than two months.  This year is going to be different, I am going to set the bar really high and aim for not gaining ANY weight.  The plan is going to be exercise and Weight Watcher meetings.  If I end up losing a few pounds, I will then be an overachiever. 

In other news, I earned two gold stars this week on my calendar.  We have been walking at lunch.  I guess this global warming is REAL because we are having some sweet 60 degree sunny weather.

Way to go throwing it out!!

If you're interested, this is the challenge worksheet that we're using (at the nest health and fitness boards) for our holiday season challenge...

I'll bet it would be a great suppliment to your plan, and maybe give it some extra focus. :D

Good for you on throwing away that Snickers bar! Nice willpower!

Sounds like you have a good goal set that will take you through the new year!

That reminded me of the Seinfeld episode when George took the doughnut out of the garbage!!!
This great heat wave we have here in the midwest has been awesome! Totally taking advantage of it, because I'm sure in a month from now......you know it!

I was really thankful my toddler got some really crappy candy for Halloween this year (meaning stuff I'm not a huge fan of!) otherwise, I would have eaten it all. Good for you for throwing it away!

Diana stole my thunder.

I was gonna go with the Seinfeld episode:

Jerry: So let me get this straight. You find yourself in the kitchen. You see an éclair in the receptacle... and you think to yourself: "What the hell, I'll just eat some trash."
George: No, no, no. It was not trash.
Jerry: Was it in the trash?
George: Yes.
Jerry: Then it was trash.
George: It wasn't down in. It was sort of on top.
Jerry: But it was in the cylinder.
George: Above the rim.
Jerry: Adjacent to refuse is refuse.
George: It was on a magazine, and it still had the doily on.
Jerry: Was it eaten?
George: One little bite.
Jerry: Well, that's garbage.
George: But I know who took the bite. It was her aunt.
Jerry: You, my friend, have crossed the line that divides man and bum. You are now a bum.


You, sister, are not yet a bum. Congrats.

What, you didn't want to pull a George Costanza?

Amanda said...

I'm not gonna lie, I have totally thrown food out, then dug it out of the trash and eaten it later (assuming it was still on top and uncontaminated, but still...gross!)

i'm happy my son hid his candy in his room, because working at home, it's far too tempting to go look for it! Kudos to you for throwing it out! You won that battle! :)

MCM Mama said...

Good job throwing out the candy! I knew I was almost back to normal health last night when I pigged out on miniature krackel bars. Now that I want the chocolate, I need to throw it out....

Heather said...

I'm thinking about calling an end to cheesecake fest . . .

Not gaining over the holidays is a great goal! Keep getting those gold stars and you'll have it. :)

OMG! Now I have coffee all over my keyboard. I would have eaten the Snickers............

lindsay said...

way to go carly! you have strong will-power - don't give in to the temptations. remember: losing weight feels a lot better than the 10 seconds of heaven a snicker's bar can provide.

Great job! I had to start putting things down the garbage disposal or the outdoor trash (where the dog s&*t is) .
