In the Mail

You may know that there is an election here in the States next week. I have already decided who I am voting for but that does not stop this registered independent with being bombarded with mail. This was all I got in today’s mail.


Yikes! The amount of trees cut down for this boggles my mind.

Yesterday, I did not go to my group. I had to get a filling yesterday afternoon and after the dentist , I just wanted to curl up and take my pain away via taking a nap but it was Halloween and the kids came calling for candy. I got a good amount of kids but I still have candy left over. I am trying to slowly eat it. So far it has been a draw in that war. I lost the last battle but the war is not over.

Do you have any candy strategies?  Mine is to not deny myself and have some but not every time I walk by the bowl. It has been challenging to say the least.


  1. I will be so glad when the election is over--all the mail, phone calls, TV ads, etc. are too much!

    It's hard for me not to eat the candy if it's in the house. I try not to eat it every time I think about it.

  2. When i have a bag of candy around i put it in the freezer. Frozen chocolate takes longer to eat so I'm not as tempted to eat handfuls at a time.

  3. buy what you don't like, take the leftovers to work


I love your comments!
