I Passed The Test!

I set out a mini goal for myself this Halloween season: No Candy Corn!  And I did it!  I passed the test! If you are a Candy Corn hater just insert your favorite candy here, because this story isn’t about Candy Corn, it’s about the fact that I said no, and for a girl like me who is addicted to food and, in particular, sweets, that is a HUGE step!

The thought to just say no has always been in the back of my mind.  Just don’t eat them Em.  And every year is the same, I buy a bag anyway and basically, eat it in one sitting.  For reference see my old blog: Yes, I Ate Candy Corn for Breakfast

This year I did it!  I had some help from Andrew, but for the most part, it was me who made the decision to just skip right over it.  I even gave myself an out.  If I saw Candy Corn somewhere I could eat it, I just couldn’t buy it.  And you know what, I didn’t even eat it.  So bam.

I know this reasoning shouldn’t be a surprise to someone my age, but for me, this is always a battle.  A war more like.  Me against Food.  I won that battle.I lost many others in the mean time, still eating things I shouldn’t. But it also was proof to me that I could do it.  It may be the battle I need to win so I can win the war.

This victory has inspired me to go on and fight another strategic battle.  I don’t know what that is, but stay tuned for more! Next week big things are coming your way in the form of a new blog format!
