Trick or Treat?

Halloween is almost here!!!

And if you’re anything like me, you might be freaking out about ALL THAT CANDY!

Maybe you have candy at home, ready for the neighborhood kids who will be stopping by your house. Maybe you have kiddos at home who will be returning with bags full of goodies. Maybe you have both!

And you’re thinking some version of the following:

“What the hell am I going to do with all this candy around?”

“How can I possible stay on track?”

“I can’t lose control around the candy!”

I know. I hear you. I understand.

I used to freak out too.

I would actually start to panic a few weeks before Halloween, worrying about what I would do when faced with all the Snickers bars and Skittles (my favorites). I used to get so stressed out thinking I was doomed.

I spent a ton of time planning what I could bring to eat that would satisfy my sweet tooth, and what I could use to distract from the pile of candy. Nothing ever worked.

Afterward, we’d to go through the process of finding the perfect hiding place for all the candy, and possibly even lock it up (not kidding), just so I couldn’t get into it.

All this stress and planning put a damper on the holiday. I didn’t look forward to it.

How sad.

UGH! No more!
