Minus 22 and holding

Briefly, I didn't lose any weight over the last week. I suspect it's because I treated myself to a serving of lasagna and green salad with Ranch dressing last Thursday and a cheeseburger and French fries on Saturday. That, coupled with the fact that I went from Friday through Monday without exercising, made for a decidedly stagnant combination when it came to stepping on the scales.

Neither of those things was planned ... the "treating" or the jogging sabbatical. It's just the way the last week went.

I am going to stay positive (I'm already back on track ... did Level 2 of The Shred after work yesterday), because I have been successful at using ALL of my willpower to deny myself ANY Halloween candy. Not one piece has passed these lips. And we have two extra-large bags of The Good Stuff right there in our pantry, waiting on the trick-or-treaters.

My friends at work have Very Tempting Bowls of it on their desks. Just TODAY, at lunch, I was tempted by the Reese's Pumpkins that have -- in years past -- proven far too great a match for my willpower. So far, I have not caved.

But oooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, my. There are so many incredibly yummy candies out there right now. I love all the small round ones. M&Ms. Peanut M&Ms. Reese's Pieces. Skittles. Sugar Babies. HELP ME RHONDA.

You are doing great! If it weren't for the fact that we have NO candy in our house right now, I'd have probably eaten bags of it already. No willpower here. None.
Keep up the great work!
