Halloween candy…the bane of my October. I employ all of the tricks, historically, I buy the stuff late, I buy the stuff I don’t like. Yesterday I had delusions of gradeur. I realized I had not yet bought any candy while at the grocery store. I plucked a couple of bags and threw them into the cart. I unpacked the groceries without temptation. Then I faltered, I opened a bottle of wine. After my second glass I swear I heard them calling me. Well, I’ll just go down for one more inch of wine……..yeah right.
I housed 3/4 of a bag of fun sized twin bars. There is nothing fun about these. All of those wrapping makes it hard to stuff your face. Plus there is nothing fun about kicking your own butt for eating all that crap.
What did I learn? Wine is the gateway drug to twix annihilation.
Let my mistake be your lesson
