For the first time in 49 years, I made it through Halloween with no sugar.
I know. Why would someone choose that? Even someone who admittedly has a problem with junk food? Why not just live it up for the day? Carpe diem! Be here, be now, be WOW!
It’s because that’s what I’ve pretty much done for the past year and in this ripe season of middle age it has added a layer that makes it tricky to bend over and tie my shoes. (I actually only do slip ons, but you get the idea, right?)
I bought candy I didn’t like but it’s funny how right around 7 p.m., those Almond Joys and Sour Patch Kids started to look mighty appealing. But instead, I had an apple and some nuts and a big assed can of La Croix water (seriously, my new obsession) and I soldiered on.
The funny thing is, I wasn’t craving it physically. Not at all. I’ve been eating well for over three weeks and those cravings fall off pretty fast when you avoid junk.
But man, it can be a real mental game.
So there it is: Cathy—1, Halloween Candy—0.
I WOULD BEE REMISS… if I didn’t say thank you for all your awesome feedback on the 2015 Bee Dance. I had so much fun doing it. I’m already planning ideas for 2016.
Today is the final day to save 15% on my e-course, 30 Days of Thankful, The last day, ladies. You wanna save, sign up and start making your album. I promise you, it’s fun and maybe even a little life changing although I can’t guarantee that part.
I started my album yesterday and am ready for a month of documenting my gratitude. I even played with the color palettes to match a new album I picked up.
I will be sharing my entries on my CZ Design Instagram account if you want to follow along. Anyone is welcome to join in. Use the hashtag #cz3odaysofthankful on social media.
