Stick With Tricks
It’s Halloween and Trick or Treat Time… Stick with the Tricks, and steer clear of the sugary treats this week!
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Don’t Start The Sugar Train. Sugar is an addictive little product that just makes you want to keep coming back for more. Steer clear of the trick or treat candy this week. If you have kids, donate it to a program like treats for troops or something similar. There are so many negative implications of too much sugar, it is best to just not start! Do you best this week to avoid sugar, you work too hard!
2. Count Your Steps. Even with avoiding sugar, holiday parties can still mean increased Calorie consumption. Track your steps this week and aim for 12,000 or more. Staying active will not only help keep you out of the candy bowl, but it will make you a N.E.A.T freak… that is non-exercise activity thermogenesis. N.E.A.T is one of the best ways to reduce weight gain in the holiday season. N.E.A.T refers to all the ways you can expend Calories without really “exercising;” taking the stairs, doing your work at a standing desk, walking farther to the grocery store, etc. Keep moving this week and count your steps!
