Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays to celebrate and participate in. Even though my little princess and super hero are grown up, I love to get into the holiday fun. I still enjoy dressing up and using the day (week) to enjoy some treats. I have a fun Halloween workout to keep you moving in between answering your door to trick or treaters.
Happy and Healthy Halloween Workout
If you are anything like me, those cute little mini Halloween candies start calling your name as soon as they hit the shelves. What’s a mother runner to do? I’ve come up with a Halloween workout to help keep you moving while enjoying the fun of the day. Pin it or print it and keep moving.
Here’s how it works~ Whether you are staying at home answering the door or out trick or treating with kids, you can perform this fun workout to “trick” yourself to keep up your activity and enjoy those “treats”. See the costume on the list and perform the corresponding exercise. Simple enough for the whole family to do. At any rate, it will give the neighbors something to talk about!!
A few “Lifesavers” to make it through Halloween
Do something active early in the day
Plan to go to a class or go for a run earlier in the day. Most Halloween activities do not start until the afternoon or evening so an early morning workout gives you are great head start for the day.
Give yourself permission to enjoy the day
Decide in advance how much candy or goodies you would feel comfortable eating. Having a plan can take away some of the stress and make the day more relaxing.
Get rid of it
Left with more candy than you expected? Many shelters and military organizations and even some dentists will take donations of extra candy. Operation Gratitude has collection points all across the country and they will send it off to the troops for them to enjoy.
Keep a healthy Perspective
If all these tips don’t work and you have an overdose of sugar, know that one day does not ruin weeks of healthy habits.
