I, along with most Americans, am making a New Years Resolution to get in shape. Even the phrase sounds like such a cliche, but I really am trying. As I mentioned in a previous blog, I have been setting health and fitness goals with my sister Megan and things went pretty well until in October I got a prolonged virus that through me off track. Now I am trying to get back on track and all that surrounds me is tons of candy! I have candy from friends, candy from Christmas, candy left over from Halloween…. Let me ask all of you- is it wrong to throw away such candy? It is seriously tempting me and now I have it stashed in the storage room where I won’t see it. I don’t want to have it in there for long; however, because I don’t want mice to come. I would give it to friends but then I feel guilty for giving them something I am avoiding. Plus, most if not all of my friends are also trying to eat healthy. I feel like that old Humphrey the Bear cartoon where the pile of papers starts out small and by the end of the day it is the size of a volcano. (If you don’t know what I mean watch this clip, which btw I just learned how to do)-
Anyway, I am thinking of just throwing it away because I figure it is wasted calories one way or another. If anyone wants it give me a call. Some of it is good candy…Still, once I make a commitment I keep it.
Those of you who know about my upcoming singles cruise might think that it will be impossible for me to keep a healthy diet going. It is going to be difficult but I am trying to look at the cruise as an opportunity to cleanse my system- kind of like a spa week. They have a healthy menu at all of the meals, so I will eat off of that and with all the swimming and exercising I can do it should be good. As much as I love my job it will be rejuvenating to be in a place where it will be difficult for others to reach me. Ahhhh! I can’t wait. Especially with it being so cold here in Utah. Stupid snow.
I have gone off topic. So, does anyone want some candy? Call me!
