how to not eat all the candy

Be a CANDY CRUSHER this Halloween!

Halloween is upon us, which means lots of candy is easily accessible, so how do you plan to CRUSH the CANDY this year, and despite the ease of snacking on it, making the choice to resist!??

Well let's start here, just don't be one of these moms!

So let me start by coming clean.....yesterday I had a bit of a relapse on my chocolate candy eating prego self! You see, I went to visit my previous job, and stopped by that office. You know the one that stores all the good candy! And they don't have the lame off brand candies, they keep the GOOD KINDS! And when I was pregnant, I would make numerous trips there a week.  It wouldn't have been so bad if I just had one or two, but by the time you have a handful or two handfuls of those tiny candies, the calories add up, not to mention all that sugar.  So....this is me admitting to you that yesterday I relapsed and did enjoy a handful of candy, but let's get on to next week.....HALLOWEEN!

How will I be a CANDY CRUSHER and resist the urge next week???

I have the perfect plan!

You see when I was first making Halloween plans, I thought, maybe we will take Zander Trick-or Treating...after all, then we will get lots of candy to eat, since he's too little to eat it! bahaha

My second idea was to go buy candy and give it out to Trick-or-Treaters.....I had two motives driving this desire.  1) I have never handed out candy to trick-or-treaters before, and I thought it would be fun. 2) It was the perfect excuse to buy the GOOD CANDY, and enjoy some myself, without guilt....after all it is HALLOWEEN right!?!?

Then I came to my senses, and decided that the hubs and I, and Zander would take a camping trip for Halloween weekend! We have been wanting to go camping, and with Zander being so small, he wasn't missing out on any fun! So we are skipping the entire thing, candy and all, and going on a weekend camping trip! I am so excited, plus it is a great way to not eat ALL THE CANDY!
