This is the worst time of year for me.
It all starts with Halloween.
My diet begins to go downhill like skiing down a black diamond hill.
My kids have been lasting longer and longer each year they go trick or treating.
Yet I still wonder why no one gives out tricks.
My kids don’t eat much of the candy, neither does my wife.
Yet it always seems to disappear.
I don’t know where it goes..
It’s so hard to resist.
Yet so unhealthy.
Check out how many calories some of these mini bite sized candies have.
- 100 Butterfinger
- 93 Peanut Butter M & M’s
- 91 Almond Joy
- 90 M & M’s
- 80 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- 80 Skittles
- 76 Milky Way
- 73 Kit Kat
- 72 Snickers
- 63 Three Musketeers
- 51 Nestle Crunch
Sit down and eat a handful of these and you’re quickly up to 1000 calories. That’s a lot of working out to make up for that.
It’s amazing how many calories can fit in something that small.
And then the next morning I feel like crap.. Well more than one morning.
That feeling you get when you know you filled your belly but your body still didn’t get the nutrients it needed.
Here are some options to get them out of the house so you don’t make this mistake too.
- Donate it to a hospital or old folks home.
- Take them to work. At my work they would be gone in an hour.
- Homeless shelters Care Packages for the troops.
- Local Fire department
- The Church
- Salvation Army
- Throw them out.
- Make gift bags for the kids at the Christmas party (my mom does this one)
- Give them all to the last kids at your door.
I’m sure there are others. What do you do?
