Halloween Temptations

It's coming....the beginning of the holiday season and c-a-n-d-y.....especially if you have little trick or treaters in your house. My kids end up with a ton...and I've been known to snatch a little "good chocolate" once in a while. In the journey to your goal...ignorance isn't bliss. It seems easier to eat a "mini" size candy bar or two and then that turns into another one 2 hrs later, etc. Here is a little guide to let you decide when that moment hits - whether or not it's worth indulging. Sometimes there is nothing else that can take the place of the treat, but if weight loss is a goal, you need to re-think those sweet treats more often than goes
This is a list of treats that add up to 100 calories...which can take 10 minutes of running at 6.0 on the treadmill to burn off. (Makes a difference when I think if it that way :)

5 Starbust fruit chews
2 Twix Minis
1 1/2 Snack Size Twix
1 1/4 Snickers Fun size bars
4 1/2 Tootsie Roll Midgees
8 Dots
3 Milky Way Midnight Minis
13 1/3 Brach's Candy Corns
1 2/3 Snack Size Peppermint Patties
