Halloween Damage Control

4093602345

Halloween has come and gone. You have cleaned up after the party, removed the costume and taken off the makeup.

Now it’s time to shake off that hangover, and deal with burning off the candy you ate. Yes, it was only a couple of pieces at the office, and a few more from the kid’s trick or treat bags. In essence, each little piece of fun sized candy is not so terrible, calorically speaking. But do you know anyone who eats one little candy corn kernel and calls it a day?

Have no fear, with are here to help with damage control. You already ate it, but there is still time to negate it!

For every Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup you ate, go for a half hour run at a moderate pace (6 mph) to burn it off.

For every mini Tootsie Roll you ate, spend about 5 minutes on the Elliptical at a moderate pace. (You know you ate at least 30 minutes worth so settle in.)

It only takes about 30 minutes of your spin class to negate the effects of a  300+ calorie candy apple. Might as well stay for the whole thing and work off that handful of candy corn while you are at it.

That little bag of Skittles you consumed will cost you a not-so-leisurely walk for almost 1 1/2 hours to torch.

A mere hour in the weight room should get rid of the 3 mini Hershey’s bars you gobbled down. Stick around a little longer if they had almonds.

When you come back, rehydrate, shower and get rid of the rest of the candy to avoid further temptation.
