Candy~

It is October and I have yet to buy candy- even my favorite of fresh candy corn (it is made from honey- satisfying- and small pieces*). I just keep telling myself that I can have a few on weigh in day Oct. 31st. That is the day that I decided to use the scale to see my month of progress. I am just beginning my third week of once again going to the gym regularly. I am excited to see the results. In the mean time I found this fun 100 list on VeggieGirls blog.

It is a Sweet 100 list! Here are the rules:
1.) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2.) Bold all of the sweets you've eaten--or make them a different type color.
3.) Consider anything that is not bold your "To Do" List.

Gotta love the 100 list. But it is a darn shame you havent had bananas foster. it is AMAZING. It was one of those quick and wise indulgences I used to eat even when I was carefully dieting. Perhaps you'll motivate me to post on it sometime soon.
