Well, considering how I usually eat on Halloween, I think I did a pretty good job yesterday.

Yes, I went over my budget by 291, but I only had one small piece of candy, and I didn’t go overboard with my breakfast for dinner plans. We did end up going to IHOP for dinner, because of their “Free Scary Face Pancake” promotion for Halloween. I did have some pancakes, but I didn’t go overboard on the syrup or the butter. I count that as a win.
The candy thing is a bigger deal, though. I like candy, especially things like Nerds and Sweetarts. My kids are very good about sharing their candy, and I typically overindulge on the sweets on Halloween. This year, I didn’t do that. I literally had one small Sweetart. That’s a huge win.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you had a happy Halloween.
