Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit junk food

I probably should have seen this one coming, but I didn’t I decided to stop eating junk food the week of Halloween. Not the best planning, I’ll admit.

Joanne, who loves Halloween, had a huge bowl of candy for the trick or treaters. Only two showed up. And there was no way I was going to let that candy go to waste. So I did my part for Halloween and ate a Mars bar and some M & Ms.

I suppose it could have been worse: my sister wound up with no candy whatsoever. Too bad there’s most of a continent and an ocean between us. She could just come over to our house; we’ve still got a whole bowlful of candy.

  1. I need to stop eating junk food too. I made up for not having any Halloween candy yesterday. I ate and ate and ate candy all day. I now feel so guilty. I will quit (most) junk food!

  2. @Ingrid I had more candy today! We had a big ol’ tub of Christmas candy, and I had some of it. This is definitely the hardest task yet.

    I’m not including dark chocolate in this, by the way. I’m still allowed a few small pieces of dark chocolate for desert. It’s good for you, after all.

  3. We had no trick or treaters as well. I don’t know what the deal was. I ate some of the Snickers bars, Brian is doing some job on the rest! I don’t even LIKE junk food and the Halloween thing got me. I’m not really supposed to have peanuts either due to the breastfeeding. Darn it all to heck. EVIL I tell ya.

  4. @Ducky Sadly, I do like the junk food. That’s what is making this so darn hard. Actually, I don’t really like it. It’s kind of like cigarettes: I think I like it, but I don’t really enjoy it, if that makes sense. The difference between eating a Snickers and really good dark chocolate is telling. I thoroughly enjoy the dark chocolate. I just eat the Snickers.
