I saw the "buy one get one free" sale on Reese's PB cups (my favorite) and figured I should stock up early for Halloween. Bad move. I justified the extra calories because the night before I ran my tail off at my nursing job. Yeah right! No excuse. So, I drank some extra water, squeezed a little lemon in for good measure, and ate a big salad to keep things moving along, if you know what I mean. The power walk in the chilly autumn air with golden leaves flying by hardly felt like a penance for a childish binge. It was delightful!
Next year I don't care if I have to pay extra to buy candy on the 31st, or if I have to give cash to Trick or Treaters. This is one case where being an early bird will not benefit me.
If I am to practice what I preach, and write, and blog, I need to catch myself in the act.
( I have a special relationsip with chocolate, especially chocolate with peanut butter in the middle.) Everything in moderation, I tell myself. So, while at a pumpkin farm today, I bought only enough apple cider donuts for each member of the household, instead of a dozen. I was not being cheap- I was fighting off gluttony!
Treats are great... in moderation. I am not trying to be Debbie Downer (wamp wamp), but I guess I should point out the obvious: Too much sugar can lead to diabletes, and too much trans fat can clog the arteries. It's more than just weight gain, especially at 50.
40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, blah blah blah. Tell that to my knees and my arteries (wamp wamp).
So here I give myself some of my own professional advice: Eating lean, healthy foods this time of year helps to provide us with nutrients to help our immune systems fight off illness during cold and flu season. I'm sold.
