Bite Sized Nectar of the Gods

Like any decent parent I try to limit the amount of sugar in my children's diet. Apparently, in order to do this, I've decided that the best way is to eat as much of their Halloween candy as is possible. Is it any mystery why now, a week later I can feel the birth of a zit that will consume my entire chin? No. It's not. Yesterday I finally reached my limit with the candy. It was one of those "I have the willpower of a God" moments, and you hear the Milky Way bar drop itself back into the bucket. I heard it sigh in defeat. The bastid. I've still got Thanksgiving and Christmas to endure...I see mass jogging in my future.

Good job! I'm proud of you for dropping the Milky Way. That's hard to do! Those M&M's look mightyyy tasty right now. I did good on my diet today :) I had oatmeal, 100 calorie pack, a cup of coffee, and a (homemade) BBQ'd cheeseburger for dinner!

Coffee?!?! Was it the college that did it? LOL!

LOL I think so! I've been CRAVING it lately. It's weird.

That picture almost made me get in the car to drive to Safeway to get some M&Ms. (It's almost midnight, by the way).

I hope you refrained. I always wake up with a guilty hangover when I eat sugary snacks that late at night.

LOL, I totally caved. But they were sooo good at the time.

Sigh. Time to hit the stair climber!
