Halloween Candy Be Gone

parents-eating-Halloween-candy

Halloween wasn't great in Chicago because it was raining, sleeting, snowing and very windy.  In fact it was so windy, they had to shut down a portion of Lake Shore Drive because the waves on Lake Michigan were flooding the road.

I bought three bags of miniature candy thinking I might get some trick or treaters, I never get a lot, but I was preparing in case I got more than expected.  The doorbell rang one time and it was a group of kids and that was it. Thinking back, I should have given that group more than one piece each but I wasn't sure if more children would come around.  

I need to get the candy OUT OF MY HOUSE!  The above wrappers are what I have eaten at lunch today. Tonight, I'm wrapping up the rest and giving it to the hubby to take to work.  Anyone else struggling with eating leftover treats or sneaking candy from their kid's stash?

  1. Oh yes! Get it out. LOL. I'm doing OK this year. Not sure why, it's usually tough for me.

  2. No problems here... but when I DID have them, I gave it away or took it to work too. Getting it out of the house is best, I think. Good luck!

  4. I just don't buy it not even for Halloween. I had one kid knock and he didn't even have on a costume...

  5. One of my co-workers brought leftover candy in to work last week. You would not believe how much I ate. We didn't have much candy left over - after 7:00 I let the kids take as much as they wanted. I was actually kind of surprised how many they did take. What was left I made my husband hide.

    I had a diet blogger tell me over the weekend that my work binges were because I didn't eat enough at work. I've been told that before. Plus, it is so easy to abandon those raw carrots for apple cake - yes someone brought that in last week too. So now I'm trying to come up with healthier snacks for work that I can look forward to eating.

  6. Not struggling because I only bought candy I don't eat. Little to no chocolate ha!

  7. I am lucky not to be struggling because I have more of a salty tooth than a sweet tooth, I haven't had one piece of Halloween candy yet.

  8. Right there with you. We took the kids out for a quick trip around our block and by the time we got back, we had, maybe 6 kids come through. Between the kids junk and our leftovers...there were a lot of empty wrappers in our trash come Monday *blush*

  9. Yes. If it is in the house it is so much harder to avoid it! :)

  11. Oh hugs! In the past I've struggled, but over the past 6 months I've worked really hard to give up processed food and refined sugars and now that I'm seeing physical results the temptation just isn't there. Getting the candy out of the house sounds like a good plan!
