Default What Is Your Plan for Halloween Night?

I have two young kids- so Halloween is a BIG holiday in our house. This year I have decided not to eat any Halloween candy- not one bite- because I know once I get started, I will keep going and going and going and going.

For passing out candy, I got stuff I don't like...blow pops and smarties. That way I won't be tempted.

What's your plan for tonight (Halloween)?

I am walking the children around for trick-or-treating; my partner passes out the candy and the rest will go into his office if there's any left over. There's a certain nose-thumbing feeling about all the walking I'll be doing tonight.

Locking the door, turning the outside lights off. I know that sounds like the grinch that stole hallowe'en but it's translated really badly into Britain, and often ends up demanding money with menaces, and doing real damage.

So I fed the dogs early, so I could get them out to their bathrooming early, and we're all locked up tight.

I'm lucky, I guess, the next food blitz I'll face is Christmas!

Went to a Halloween party last night, my strategy was to volunteer to be my husband's DD, so the got rid of the booze drinking and I had my wits about me at the buffet table. The result? A 1.2lb loss this morning.

I get up for work at 5:30 am, so my plan for tonight is to eat a salad and be tucked in bed by 8:30. We don't really get trick or treaters where I live.

The kids here trick or treated Friday night. For the ones coming to our house I got candy that wouldn't tempt me, which means no chocolate. As for the candy my daughter brought home. I knew I would want some. Soo.. I had some. I factored it into my calories for the day and had a couple of my favorite pieces. I handled it quite well. I realize some people can't do that, and in the past I couldn't either. There are things I still can't, like Oreos aren't allowed anywhere near the house. =)

Candy is not an issue for me this year. There are not many kids that go trick or treating where I live. So, I do not have to worry about purchasing candy and handing it out. Also, I do not have any kids yet. So, I do not have to take a child trick or treating. I have ignored it in the grocery store.

So, my plan for tonight is to relax and not think about candy.

well, it is a HUGE deal in my neighborhood. the police block off our street because we get SO many trick-or-treaters. i am having anxiety about it because i will be passing out all the candy-part of me wants to turn off my lights and lock the doors...but i know my 4 year old would NOT be on board with that!!! my husband has to work tonight- so i have to go it alone with the kids...this is SO NOT my favorite holiday. my neighborhood is VERY decorated- and i just have not had a spare moment to decorate, which makes me feel bad!

i am ready for it to be November!!!!

I went to a halloween party last night. I 'saved up' some calories to use there, but I know I exceeded them. I had a good amount of alcohol (straight alcohol though, no sugary mixed drinks, but still) 4 fun sized snickers, some chips and dip, and 4 mini brownies. Not a binge, but not what I had planned on.

As soon as I was drunk, all planned eating went out the window. I was still hungry after I left so I got a bbq sandwich and a lemonade on the way home but I felt too sick to eat it, so I saved it for lunch.

I'm not going out tonight, and I don't have any candy for trick or treaters so I'm safe until thanksgiving.

I have two kids, so we'll be doing ToT tonight.

My DH is handing out the candy. I *just* opened it and as planned, allowed myself 5 pieces. My husband has been given strict instructions to make sure it's gone before we get home, and I won't touch my kids' candy (they seem to have steel-trap memories when it comes to stuff like that, so I know I'd get busted!).

I had those 5 little pieces and feel sick. It wasn't as good as I remembered, and I'm not tempted in the least to go get more.

Got a package of non chocolate candy to hand out, which my Dad is doing. I'm having long distance movie night with my man. We're watching Ghostbusters!

I LOVE Halloween - it's my favorite holiday - so I always buy candy for the little ghouls and goblins. Also, it's my first Halloween in a new house so don't want to be the grinch and get egged or something. So, I'll give out candy, then take the rest to work tomorrow so I won't eat it. Happy Halloween everyone!

I have 4 kids, and one of those kiddos were born on Halloween. So it is HUGE at our house. I managed to stay out of all the candy (and my husband bought good stuff!) until it was time to pass out. I allowed myself 1 mini heath bar and that's what I ate. My kids ToT last night (per town's request so they aren't doing ToT on a Sunday), and we now have 2 walmart sacks FULL of candy.

My plan is to freeze (or put far away) all the chocolate for Christmas candy recipes. (We give a lot of that stuff out for gifts). I'm having a hard time resisting, but I will!
