Today’s JigSaw puzzle … “The Morning After Scream”
… was inspired by a combination of things.
Primarily, Halloween and the turning back of the clock. My internal clock is confused and still slightly ‘off’ from all that Halloween sugar!!!
Enjoy your Sunday Sundae!

The Halloween Party is OVER!
What will you do with the leftover Halloween Candy?
This morning, before anyone got up, I tip-toed into the kitchen – grabbed the leftover Halloween candy and dumped it. Down the garbage shoot … gone! And you know what? It wasn’t easy. But in the end, I felt triumphant.
I invite you to put an “X” through yesterday, as if it didn’t happen and …
Get rid of the candy and …
What will you do with the leftover Halloween loot? Dump it? Give it away? Save one or two or maybe even three pieces for another time?
Please … share your strategies below. Let’s support each other in waking up on New Year’s Day THINNER than we are today!

Are you worried that Halloween will turn into a two-month binge?
Are you feeling anxious that the holiday season kick-off is upon us?
Are you concerned that you might gain weight?
Here is One Thing YOU CAN Do Today that will help you gracefully and sveltely move through the holiday season.
Chew Slowly and Savor the Flavor
Research shows that those who slow down while eating and savor the flavor, eat less than those who gulp and stuff.
In a recent study conducted by the University of Rhode Island, scientists found that when eating quickly women consumed 646 calories in approximately nine minutes. When they ate slowly, they averaged 579 calories in 29 minutes!
Get it? They ate 67 calories more in nine minutes than they did in 29 minutes! In addition, those who slowed down and savored the flavor, enjoyed their meal and felt satisfied on multiple levels!
One thing you can do today: Slow Down … Savor the Flavor!

Ghosts, Goblins, Gremlins … Candy … oh My! by Janice Taylor
Tomorrow is Halloween! Is “Candy” calling your name? She sure is a seductress!
What to do? Change your name and then …
Curb the Sugar Cravings. On Halloween or on any other day, remember that balanced meals curb sugar cravings! Therefore, do not make a candy bar your breakfast. First have a poached egg, some fruit, a slice of whole wheat toast (or healthy balanced breakfast of your choice) and then … should you indulge in a piece of candy, you will be less likely to go full tilt hog wild.
Think Outside the Candy Box. You could (yes, you could) give those adorable trick or treaters fun stickers or party favors or even rubber spiders. Now – that’s lasting fun!
Last Minute Shopping. This is one exception to the rule “be prepared.” Do NOT shop ahead of time. Do NOT keep bags of trick-or-treat candy in the house. HOLD OFF – till the very last second! That means, if you haven’t picked up candy yet, DON’T. There’s always tomorrow morning or on your way home from work tomorrow night!
Yucky vs. Yummy. Another exception to the ‘only eat what you love’ rule. Do NOT buy, store, or house candy that you like. What are you least likely to dip into? That’s your choice! Choose yucky over yummy!
Keeping YOU Honest!
Read the labels. Even those big bags of mini-bite-sized beauties have labels. Read them and know the magnitude of your sins!
Save Some! Oh boy … Now there’s a crazy concept. Even though you’ve been careful not to buy your favorite candies – nevertheless, your favorite candies have landed in front of you! How about you choose 3 pieces (or more or less … you decide) that delight your sugary soul and savor them. One piece per day. YES! Imagine … setting candy limits!
Hire Dave, the Doorman. If you can’t “handle” it, literally – as in handing out candy at the door without implementing the the “One for you, two for me” method … then delegate someone else to be the one who ‘mans’ the door and rent a doorman costume for him/her!)
The Morning After
Give “IT” Away. Bring ‘it’ to the office, give ‘it’ to a neighbor, donate ‘it’ to your church! Just be sure to get ‘it’ out of your house! (and join The Christmas Diet)
Skip the “Day After Halloween Get As Fat As You Can for 1/2 Price Sale!” May be the hardest part of Halloween for the gifted shoppers out there, but in the end, 1/2 price candy is gonna’ cost you plenty!
What’s your strategy? Seriously, what will you do after the Belly Bustin’ Bingeing Season Kick-Off? What’s your plan, your strategy to get through the holidays without gaining weight?
