- Two bags of candy corn purchased and consumed last month (Jeff helped, but still...)
- Candy toppings on my frozen yogurt - yummy, but I never used to do that
- I've found myself eating candy, without hesitation, over the last couple of months - I used to at least consider it before shoving it into my mouth!
- Self-preservation - I'm starting work today at James Avery and there is a big candy bowl in the staff area. I didn't get into it last year, and I need to make sure that I don't do it again this year.
I know that if I tried something as stringent as no sugar, I'd fail - but no candy? I can do this. In fact, I am doing this - the morning of November 1st, I put up my container of Dove dark chocolate Promises for the month, and even though I usually have one or two pieces in the evening, I've been OK without. And in case you're wondering, I did help myself to
By the way, I got this idea after watching Merry do 30 days of no sugar in October (how much do I love that she timed it to end so she could eat Halloween candy?) - she made it look easy, and that was giving up ALL sugar. I'm just giving up candy, so it should be a piece of cake. Which I can have, because it's not candy! All kidding aside, I'm not gonna have cake. Now pie? That's another story...but hey, it's not candy!
