Why I do not like time of the year;watch out holidays

Sunday, September 19, 2010

This time of the year the stores pack aisles upon aisles of candy and sweets for football and Halloween. I went to the store today with my mom and she the nerve to want to go to the halloween candy aisle. Well naturally I followed her. It didn't bother me too much to see all that yummy candy and chocolate that I swore off of. No what bothered me was that when I went to the electronic area in Wal-mart not 15 minutes later here she comes with every single last candy bag you can think of. M&Ms, snickers, kitkats, and all the yummy candies we all got when we went trick or treating as kids. And she didn't stop there, She gets MORE chips, we just got chips friday night. So now I have to look at these stupid things everyday. She got alot of chocolate so it won't bother me that much cause I haven't had chocolate in 2 years and I really don't like it now. But its the fact that it is there as a temptation for me to want to go off and eat everything in site. Good thing I got my veggies and fruit to comfort me. But next you have Thanksgiving although its 2 months away mom is already making a list of stuff that she wants to buy and make. Last year I filled my plate to where it was just about over-flowing. Although I didn't touch the deserts and had more veggies than anything I still managed to pile on 15 pounds from it. Maybe cause I ate seconds and thirds. Its time I start thinking about what will I do with the up coming holidays because they will be here before you know it. I'm gonna use portion control this year and bends that I'm on this journey I think extra exercising will come to order. And Christmas, talk about wanting to go over board. I know my sunday school and his wife will want us to come over for a Christmas party, and she'll make me a chocolate truffel like she does every year and I won't be able to turn it down. But I have a plan if I can lose 15 to 20 pounds by the time that Christmas party comes around then and only then will I treat myself to such a yummy desert like that then thats it no more. Around the holidays I tend to go crazy and stuff my face till I'm sick. This year I will not do that, I refuse it. Look out Holiday dinners, deserts and parties cause a new Danielle is in town.
