I need a tune-up.

This morning was weigh-in day, and I'm up 2.5 pounds. Between my husband's low-carb, high-protein, high-fat diet and working overtime and giving in to too many cravings, I'm not doing very well here. Why do they have to put that darn Halloween candy out so far before the actual holiday? This is the toughest time of the year for me. First it's Halloween candy, then the Christmas candy comes out before Thanksgiving. Then Thanksgiving comes with the huge meal and leftovers that go on forever. Then the traditional Christmas baking and candy (which goes on sale right after Christmas). There's a quick respite when everybody is make New Year's resolutions, and the next day they bring out the Valentine's Day chocolate. As soon as Valentine's Day is over, out comes the Easter candy, and my personal worst temptation ever - Cadbury anything. Cadbury even trumps Hershey.

I have got to buckle down and get back to my original plan. It was working pretty well for a while.

I've decide it's Satan. He makes the candy and sells it to the stores. Look at it that way, that he's standing there grinning while you pick it up and put it in your cart.

The thing is. One piece isn't bad. It's stopping with one that is so hard. I LOVE chocolate too. I keep telling myself, "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips." It helps me keep it all in perspective. I've also really learned to just enjoy the smell without having to taste. It's hard to do, but do-able.

But good luck. You can do it. You are stronger than temptation.

I agree with the Cadbury. It's hard to stay away from. And I've been dreading this time of year for all those same reasons- CANDY, CANDY, CANDY. Good luck blinding your eyes to the candy aisle!
