We didn't have a single piece of candy or food item off plan through all of Halloween!!! And you know what? I didn't even miss it. I think it helped that I already had decided NOT to so I didn't spend any time pondering the candy, looking at my kids' buckets of treats, or staring at the little cupcakes brought to us.... NOPE.
In the past I would sometimes just "try" to stay on plan yet I still allow myself to think about the food I shouldn't eat or tempt myself until I finally snitched. I just needed to STOP TEMPTING MYSELF. That totally works! I stop allowing the thought of eating it in my mind! Get busy with other fabulous things!
And we did have something FABULOUS: Yesterday we had a family over for a Halloween dinner of my Rosemary Ranch Chicken kabobs which was FABULOUS! (I found the perfect timing to broil them: 5 minutes on one side, then 3 on the other and they come out so tender and moist!)
The guests and kids all LOVED it! Then we played Band Hero and Pit while the kids went trick or treating. It was great focussing on fun instead of the candy and goodies. Plus the lime/banana/coconut knox blox were a HIT to snack on!!
I'm choosing my LIFE over unhealthy foods!
