Its sitting there just staring at me. Begging me to unwrap it and shovel it down my throat… Taunting me with all its sugary goodness… Halloween candy comes directly from Satan, clearly.
I am really glad my brother bought some candy to eat and give out to all the little costumed kiddies. I am. But I am NOT happy that it was not all given away on that day of treats. I ate enough during the last week that I do not need unnecessary candy sitting around tempting me to dispose of it myself. The holiday is over and the candy’s existence in my house should be over too.
I hate when Halloween is on a weekend. Don’t get me wrong… it makes for a really fun weekend. however it also amplifies my problem with weekends.
I am not good at weekends. It is my biggest problem with my attempts to lose weight. I will do well all week then blow it on the weekends. On weekdays I eat better and workout on most days, but on the weekend I completely abandon my happy workout self. I become a food obsessed lazy girl.
Halloween weekend was particularly bad. I went out to eat Mexican food on Friday night to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I also drank margaritas with my yummy and extremely unhealthy mexican food. On Saturday I ate fast food for lunch, snacked on candy all day, ate chips and salsa and southwestern eggrolls at Chili’s, and drank a ton of rum and coke. Considering I don’t even drink coke normally this was baaad for me (tasted good though!). Combined with a complete break from exercise and you have one unhealthy weekend.
At least I am not the only one who has problems with the weekend. I was reading other blogs today and over at Waste the Waist there is a consensus that weekends are hard: “So my biggest problem area has been the weekends (and lately those damn candybar in a cup coffees – ahem). Upticks of five, ten, even twelve pounds (!) have been documented via my scale, if not on this blog.”
I definitely sympathize. I know I gained about 3 pounds over the weekends. Sad! But that has passed and now its time to get back on track. No more crying over pounds gained and eating Halloween candy. :)
