Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means: sweets! Between scary (and sexy!) costumes and overall good mischief, you might want to be prepared for the onslaught of chocolate bars, candy corn, and empty calories.

#1 TIP:  Schedule a Workout
When you work out, you feel and eat better.  Get your workout in before you hit that party.  Don't forget we have a 10am Better Body Exchange class Saturday mornings.
I would have to do 72 Burpees to burn off one of my favourite Reese Peanut Butter Cups!!  Think long and hard about that.

#2 TIP:  Eat it all at once
Treat it like any other Cheatmeal.  Eat all of your treats all at once and let your kids do the same.  Get it out of your system.  It’s much better for your teeth and you won’t keep craving it over and over again.  Throw all of the candy out after 7 days.

#3 TIP:  Don’t spread it around
Get rid of the extra junk, throw it in the garbage, donate it but do not bring “left over candy” to your work place and give it to people you know!
Do NOT be that saboteur!

#4 TIP: Sugar Buster
Sugar is a drug and hormone disruptor and it weakens your immune system.  
It’s FLU season.  “I already ate so many treats, I might as well just spend the rest of my day eating junk.”  NO!  
Get back on the fitness and healthy eating wagon right away!  Plan your next workout and Goal.

#5 TIP:  Reduce and Replace
Enjoy your treats then replace them with something else.  Halloween is only ONE night; don’t carry it into November.    
Instead, satisfy your sweet tooth with a tasty Quest or OhYeah One Protein Bar.
