That's how many calories I burned last month running! Can you believe that?! It's a good thing, too, considering I've been eating my weight in chocolate for the last few weeks. I seriously would have gained at least 5 pounds in the last month if I weren't running. I need to kick this sugar addiction fo' real. I've always had a sweet tooth, but it's out of control now. Having unlimited access to 4 kids' Halloween candy and the excuse that "I can eat whatever I want! I'll run it off tomorrow!" is not a good way to go in the long run (no pun intended). It's been a nice ride, though...

So, how do I break this addiction? I'm serious. It IS an addiction. I went cold turkey a year or so ago, and did great. I only allowed myself to eat baked goods since I LOVE to bake, and couldn't see living without my desserts for the rest of my life. I swore off of candy altogether, and did really well for a few months. I made the mistake of thinking I could re-introduce a piece of candy or chocolate into my life once a week or so, and that was it! I fell completely off the wagon, and it's been downhill since then. I need to just get over this thing and stop giving in to the tempting call of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats. They really do call me...I can hear them! Can't you??
