Step 1 admitting I have an addiction

Well to many things, but this week it happens to be bite size Take 5 candy bars. I...just...can't...stop...eating...them. The chocolate, peanut butter, pretzel yummy goodness. The bag is almost empty in only 4 days (because I keep walking in the kitchen for water and grab just 1). This is the problem with working from home! I solemnly swear to never buy a bag of Halloween candy after Halloween because they are on super sale and I am craving chocolate and peanut butter. And I was so good leading up to the holiday. It's those after holiday sales, they always get me.

On the training schedule today was a 7 mile tempo run with 5 miles at 8:44. I did better and actually averaged an 8:25 min/mile. I am happy with that but I now need to start working on maintaining the speed throughout the entire tempo run. I started out too fast and definitely slowed that last mile and a half. I also need to start working on hill training. There are two good size hills in marathon take 2 and I am going to crash and burn if I am not prepared.

Tonight is Mexican dinner with the girls. My friend kicked butt in the Marine Marathon (her first and only) a couple weeks ago and we finally found some time to get together and celebrate. Looking forward to seeing friends. I haven't seen one of the girls (one of my old roomies) in nearly 6 months, I think since our other friend got engaged and we got together to celebrate. It is crazy how fast time goes by and before you know it you haven't spoken to someone in 6 months or a year. But luckily no one has a meeting, I'm not traveling (thanks to Jury Duty), others found a babysitter, and ta da we can all get together for some yummy guacamole and a margarita. My life...it revolves around food. Seriously, I think I need help :)

YOu know what? I don't think I've EVER had a Take 5 Bar. I will have to try one. I'm pretty partial to anything with chocolate so I'm sure you're not helping me :P

I was doing well, too, before the holiday. And I only picked up one bag of Reese's cups afterward, which my hubby helped polish off. I thought I was in the clear until my mother-in-law brought all of her leftover trick-or-treat candy to us on Sunday. I'm trying to be strong and only eating a piece or two (or three) after dinner. (I'm secretly thankful she brought it over. I never allow that stuff in my house and I love it.)

Yah, thanks for describing Take 5 in delicious detail. Not only do I have a problem, now I have a new obsession. :D

I love Take 5 Bars. My husband is in charge of Halloween candy, and he didn't buy any this year. Just as well! He did go to Target and buy up a ton of 75% off candy a couple days ago. Today I was in a weird mood, so I substituted a Snickers bar for my Lean Cuisine entree. They had the same calories. We'll do better tomorrow, right?
