“It’s just a snack size bar I can have one” Come on, how many of us really only have one? Those stupid little tasty treats keep haunting us with their sweet taste and we eventually cave in, eating like 10 of ’em! Jeeze ,Halloween is pretty scary. Well don’t freak out, your not alone and we will help you deal with this scary mess!
Ok so just remember the basic simple math equation… burn more calories then you take in. How do we do that, easy… MOVE YOUR BUTT! You can go take a class at the gym tonight, maybe Zumba or Spin or even a basic step class, any one of those should be good for 300-500 calories burned. Can’t make it to the gym, no problem, instead of staying home passing out the candy, go walking with your kids as they trick or treat. Throw in a little jogging here or there, get that heart rate up and burn some calories. If you have a heart rate monitor use that as your tool to calculate how many calories you burned on your walk or jog.
If you have some down time before bed, get on the floor and do some push-ups, hit 2 sets of 20 to help tone that chest and your arms. Feel like the candy went straight to your butt or thighs? Lets do some squats, hit 2 sets of 20. Lunges, do 2 sets of 10 each leg. To tone your butt, lay down on the floor, feet flat with your knees bent, lift your butt to a bridge position and hold for 7 seconds. Do 2 sets of 15 for this one. Before you go to bed, stretch out your legs, back, arms and neck along with a few deep breaths. There, you’ll feel better and sleep peacefully instead of tossing and turning having nightmares about all the candy you ate! Happy Halloween!!!
