Friday Fun – Halloween Candy

Are you like me? I love candy… I know it’s bad, and full of badness, and super processed… but I still like it.

I can normally do okay because I don’t buy much of it at all, so it’s not around me to tempt me (except in the vending machine at work but I keep my desk full of healthier alternatives and so I never fall victim to the snack machine…), but Halloween presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities – candy is EVERYWHERE.

I don’t have children yet so I am not confronted with pillow cases of the stuff, but its at parties and in the office kitchen (because people bring in the extra so THEY won’t eat it!), and it just seems omnipresent.

Truthfully, most of us enjoy a few pieces. Not the end of the world! Here are some exercises you could do to “offset” the calories brought on by these sugary splurges. If you have the willpower to avoid eating any, my hats off to you – you are AMAZING. But if you aren’t quite there yet – don’t fret. You are human, we all make mistakes.

Go burn it off 🙂

ate it negate it

ps, if you can get the kids to join in on these activities with you, they could burn theirs off too!

  1. We save healthier treats like dark chocolate for special occasions. Also have you heard of stevia? We use it a lot for sweetener rather than the fake chemical ones out there. Some sweeteners actually make you hungrier, love and light C.

    1. Yes – I’m not actually a fan of sweeteners – I used to take one in my iced coffee daily but I am going on 2 months now of just milk in my coffee – slowly but surely weaning myself! I agree that Stevia is much lesser an evil than some of the fake stuff out there!

      Also I love dark chocolate! 🙂
