A Really Bad Idea

We just moved into a new neighborhood, and so I didn't know how many trick-or-treaters we were going to have, and I didn't want to be a bummer and run out of candy! So I made sure to get a large bowl-full.
Absolutely no trick-or-treaters! Not one! So I had a whole bowl of candy. I couldn't just get rid of it- it was high quality stuff! (a major flaw in my thinking!) So I decided I would eat it as quickly as possible to avoid feeling awful for the next month. I'd just get it over with- like ripping off a band-aid. Not a good idea. The candy (between me and my pregnant cousin) was gone by Sunday. And I still feel icky! I have zero motivation to even turn on my pilates tapes.
I settled for cleaning out the closet under the stairs, which was a very light workout. I'm determined to pick it up soon!

Oh! Poor you! What could you do? Freeze it? Ship it to soldiers in Iraq (where it would probably melt)? I like to send stuff with my husband to take to work. That gets rid of some stuff.

We don't get Trick or Treaters either, but we learned that like 6 years ago when we first moved in! Too bad you don't live near Liz, she ran out of candy.

Get back on the wagon! You can do it!
