Thoughts for Halloween CandyPosted: October 27, 2011
If you can’t tell, I’m very worried about Halloween. I have only been doing Weight Watchers seriously for a week (my weigh in is tomorrow) and the temptations brought on by all that Halloween candy is going to be way more than this Bovine can handle. I would just as soon not bring any of it into the house but I have 4 calves who have been planning their trick or treat route for the past 2 months. My oldest has set the goal high. His plan is to hit all 203 houses in our subdivision. I fear for my own personal safety should I tell him that he can’t keep his Halloween candy. I would be sent to the slaughter house for sure.
Last year, a local dentist was collecting candy in exchange for cash. He then sent the candy to the troops overseas. If there is anything that my calves like more than chocolate, it’s cash. So I was able to convince them to do it. Actually, I was really proud of them as they were excited to donate the candy to the troops and even gave the cash they received to our church for the homeless.
It was great but I haven’t seen any ads for it this year…Humph. I guess I could buy the candy from them and donate it somewhere. Of course, I do run the risk of buying all the candy and then hiding in my garage to eat it. It’s much safer to find a place for it out of the house….far far away.
I am going to have the Bull take some into work and fatten up his co-workers…after that I am out of ideas. Do you have any suggestions as to how to avoid over indulging in Halloween candy? Please don’t give me the Weight Watchers mantra of moderation. This Bovine is an all or nothing kind of cow.
