halloween, a 3 part series: trick or treat! (part 1)

happy halloween, beasts!  i absolutely love this holiday but know that it can be a real diet buster with all of the sugary hoards of candy.  i know it's easy to buy lots of candy to hand out and you tell yourself that you'll stash the extras away somewhere so you can indulge in a treat every once in a while, but let's be honest....that doesn't happen.
those extra bags stay out and you graze.  and then you feel guilty
but, those leftover bags of halloween treats don't have to taunt you.  sweat off a few fun-sized indulgences on your next workout.
check out just how many of your favorite fun-sized candies you're burning off at your next workout.  keep in mind that all calorie counts are based on a 130-pound woman and fun-sized candy bars.

Charleston Chew (30 calories)10 minutes of leisurely walking (2.5 mph)
Nestle's Crunch or York Peppermint Patty (60 calories each)25 minutes of yoga
3 Musketeers (63 calories)26 minutes of Pilates

so be smart.  stick to your goals and don't let it all go to your hips...and thighs...and glutes....and stomach...

happy halloween from me to you

eat clean.  live lean.  live better.  live longer.
