And We're Off...

How was your Halloween, good? Got lots of extra candy around now, either at home, or the office, or both? It's so good, can't resist...

Halloween marks the beginning of the end-of-year calorie-athon. It starts with all the candy and treats destined for Trick-or-Treaters. Then we have the build-up to Thanksgiving, our national eating holiday. (I know that I personally have two levels of food bloat: full, and Thanksgiving full.) Add in the holiday parties for work and with friends, the non-stop cooking and goodies that show up throughout the season, and combine with the shorter, darker days and worsening weather, and the end result is something that makes you throw sheets over your mirrors and make one of those I'm-going-to-really-lose-weight-this-time New Year's resolutions.

I'll be good, right after one more peanut butter cup. Ok, two.

Not enough kids showed up this year (guess the neighbourhood is getting old), so I'm left with too many chocolate bars.

Luckily, we've had our Thanksgiving up here already, so have a break before the Christmas goodies make an appearance
