Keeping It Healthy For the Halloween Weekend...

Alright guys, the weekend is fast approaching and you can definitely keep up the healthy eating and snacking, even if it is Halloween weekend! You've worked hard all week and you do not want to blow your efforts in one day. Here are a few key points to get you through the weekend!

  • Get your exercise on. If you can get a solid half hour of heart pumping cardio activity in, on Saturday AND Sunday,then that's great. If not commit to at least one weekend day of doing half an hour of cardio
  • If you are going out, load your bag with healthy snacks such as apples, almonds, string cheese and a healthy granola bar (I like the ones by Kashi)
  • If you are going to a party, have a bowl of low sodium vegetable soup. This will help curb your craving and hopefully keep you away from the trick or treat bowl
  • If you are craving candy, then go for the small fun size pieces. These usually rank in at about 80 calories per piece
  • Drink water and sip on tea through out your days
  • Eat healthy throughout the day. The worst thing you can do is save your appetite for when going out. You will just go overboard from hunger and eat way too much! Nosh on fruits, veggies and lean protein throughout the day instead.
