Valentine’s candy, aftermath

Posted on February 23, 2010. Filed under: Dining | Tags: |

Ever since my mom went a little nuts with giving me butterfingers, I’ve been staying away from candy. There are two instances where this is nearly impossible: Halloween candy corn, and Valentine’s conversation hearts. This past Halloween, my dad ate most of my candy corn (and then my mom bought me another bag…), but that’s what happens when you live with someone who loves it as much as you do. For Valentines day, my mom got me a bag of butterfingers (which I gave to one of my casts) and a bunch of conversation hearts. I know a lot of people call them tums with writing, but I love the little things. I can eat bags and bags of them without thinking twice. And think about it, they have a low calorie count, so they aren’t nearly as bad as other candies, and they’re a lot lighter.

I’m moving out of my parents’ house next week. I see this as a good thing for my diet because I had gained 9 pounds when I moved back in with them.  I have found that when I live with them, I can’t help but just eat what they have, and its never to amazingly healthy. Living on my own I can always pick my own eating habits and what I eat, that, and the people I’m moving in with are trying to lose weight for their upcoming wedding, so I’ll just be following their diet.  I’m not sure how much baking I’ll be doing because of their diet, but I’m sure I can’t stop it because hey, I’m addicted to it =)
