Seriously... who has candy corn in January? Well... a friend of mine did. She brought it over yesterday. Ugh. She's an elderly friend who comes by... sounds like a stupid reason not to tell her "get that stuff out of here!!!!", but that's why I didn't. I gave the kids a few pieces along side a plate of fruit & veggies... but ME?!?!? Oh, I just ate it by itself. Geez! It wasn't a TON, but it was likely about 1/2 a cup... and that in it's self may not be bad, but it gave me the major munchies after. I tried to keep my munching healthy, but ate far too much... a salmon burger in a whole wheat pita with lettuce, chunk of mana bread with almond butter, made myself a pot of coffee to try to stop eating... then ate about 6 sugar-free hard candies (another attempt)... then ate an entire bag of edame (soy beans). So, at least it wasn't like a cheesecake or anything, but it was like an additional breakfast & lunch! I won't beat myself up too much, but boy- now I know that sugar just sets me off! Next time, I'll throw the candy corn in the trash if I don't have the heart to say no.
Today is a new day.
