Since Nathan didn’t want to eat his Halloween candy, Paul and I decided to take on the task of consuming it ourselves. You know, so it wouldn’t go to waste and all that. So over the last two days, we
snacked gorged on the entire bag. (In our defense, it was a small bag and was only 1/4 full… and I tried to entice Nathan into eating some but hey, if the kid doesn’t want sugar, I’m not gonna complain about it!) We don’t eat a lot of candy, but when we do, we don’t joke around! It was delicious. There was a lot of candy in there that reminded me of the times I went trick-or-treating as a kid. Smarty’s… tootsie rolls… airheads… bubble gum… jawbreakers… M&M’s… all that deliciousness. All those calories.
Maybe I shouldn’t have eaten all that after all…
Then again, it just makes me work out even harder at the gym!
I’ve only gained a pound from my gluttony. That’s not bad at all. I think it’s because muscle burns calories more efficiently than fat, and since I’ve been working out like an animal for a number of months now, I’ve built up a decent amount of muscle. Therefore when I do decide to splurge, I don’t gain 5-10 pounds like I used to before I started being more healthy. So bring on the holidays!
