Happy, Healthy Halloween

As we rounded the bend to yet another display and another handful of candy, one of the “treaters” said to me…”It’s your favorite night of the year, right?” As we laughed knowing that she was being sarcastic and making light of the fact that we typically try to keep our candy and namely sugar intake to a minimum, it made me think. I don’t necessarily love the onslaught of candy that the Halloween is known for, but truth be told, because our focus is balance, I don’t mind the occasional treat (or trick) here or there. I do try to do my best to keep it all in moderation, though, so I thought I’d share a few of my tips for enjoying a healthy and Happy Halloween!

I seriously love EVERYTHING about fall!!! You’re probably thinking, “So what’s the problem?” Or maybe you guessed it already…

And with the extra busyness of the season (with after school practices and football games and harvest festivals…) who really has a ton of time to or wants to take the time to work out? So what’s a girl to do?!

Struggle sticking to your health and wellness goals this time of year? Spice up your fall fitness with this fun, effective option!
