Joy O' Joy!

I've been trying to loose weight lately. Wait. Let me restate that. I've been trying to lose weight practically all my life. I just don't try very hard. This summer I broke my arm and because I had a lot of problems with it swelling, I had to sit around with it elevated above my heart alot. Regardless, (and this is the best excuse I have come up with in a while for being fat) I gained 10 pounds over the summer. So I've been trying harder since school started to lose. Since I get up at 4 in the morning, I usually am in bed by 8:30 or 9pm. I decided since I go to bed so early, I need to eat earlier, so I usually try to eat at 5pm, and I usually eat a bowl of cereal. Sometimes I might slice up a banana to go in the cereal. I try to watch what I eat during the rest of the day also and usually eat a salad or a tuna sandwich for lunch. Anyway... Halloween is coming and you know what that means. Now normally I don't have a problem with having candy in my house. I always have candy. In fact we don't have a cookie jar, we have a candy jar. But I never eat it. Until now. The past 3 days I have been eating one of those bite-size Almond Joys followed by a bite-size (3 pieces) package of Whoppers. Thank-goodness it's only bite-sized. Because what I really want to do is go through that entire jumbo package of mixed Halloween candy that I bought at Sam's and pick out every single Almond Joy in there and eat it in one sitting. I don't do that - not because of the reason you might think - I don't do it because then I wouldn't have one for tomorrow! :0)

My downfall is donuts, but I usually try to avoid them. My biggest weakness is small dark chocolate anything. I rationalize that it's good for my heart.
