I know that I will have to give in to temptation when it comes to Reeses Pieces and Skittles! Ha, I don't really like sweets, unless it's cheesecake but if either of those two are in their buckets, I'm grabbing them!
We must keep in mind that every now and then it's ok if we all splurge but it's getting ourselves back in control AFTER the holiday that can be a problem for us!
My advice: If you don't eat it that evening, throw it away! Indulge with family and friends that evening and what's left...get it out of the house! If it's there, we'll tend to grab it when we're feeling hungry, right? RIGHT! Why put ourselves through that? *Some dentist offices will have an exchange program where you turn in the candy(to prevent cavities, but it can be to prevent calories too! Ha!)they'll give you a toothbrush, stickers, etc and in return they send the candy to our troops! Pretty cool, so check if your area has these programs available! Other than that, have fun and enjoy the time with your family! *Also, see if there's a Monster Mash-Halloween 5K in your area. It's a great way to keep the family active before consuming way too much candy and chocolate! I plan on waking up Halloween morning and running to start the day off right.
*Plus, tomorrow we have the D'Feet Breast Cancer 5K and I'm very excited. We have a cold front in our area, so woohoo no more 90 degree temps, we're in the 70's! And the best part, no more mosquitos. AWESOME! My friend will be running her first 5K and I am SO excited for her, I know she'll do great and hopefully if she likes it, I can get her racing with me all of the time!
