November First

I've been eating a lot of candy lately. Not just yesterday [Halloween] when eating a little bit of candy is appropriate. I mean for a couple of weeks now. It started out with a couple of gummy bears and has since turned into me wanting sugar almost every single day...a couple of times a day. The worst part of all of this is that I am craving the sugar at night...late night...when I am supposed to be sleeping but instead I'm in my kitchen holding a bag of half empty candy.

Last night I stopped off at Walgreens on my way home from work to pick up a bag of fun size candy to give out to the trick or treat-ers. I live in an apartment complex and surprisingly don't get a lot of people coming around asking for candy. When I say 'not many people come around', I basically mean zero. But I always buy a bag just in case someone does come around. The last thing I want to be is that apartment with no candy. Last night, a child and an adult did come around. That's like the most people we've ever had. That was it. Two people. Now there is a bag of candy sitting around in my apartment. It's already half empty.

Today is November 1st, twenty-one days from now will be Thanksgiving. The holidays are upon us. The last couple of year, I've done a pre-Thanksgiving diet clean-up and religiously worked-out to offset the inevitable dinner feasts, cookie exchanges, office parties and ultimately finding myself standing in front of a large dessert table. Last night, as I was sitting there downing my third fun size I suddenly remembered that tomorrow was November 1st. So starting today, no more candy for me for the next three weeks. I'm going to go now and sit in a corner and fret.

I was good all of the way up to Halloween and now there is a huge bowl that my son brought home from trick or treating.I did eat a few pieces last night but promised myself that I would be good. The holidays are so tough with all of the goodies out there!
