Coastal Estate Team's WELLNESS IN ONE!
Halloween. It makes some of us giddy with excitement, while others dread the endless supply of candy everywhere they turn. This year, let's indulge without packing on the pounds. While it's easy to consume a few extra calories from all of the treats - whether it's from the office party or sneaking your favorite candy out of your kiddo's bag while they're not looking - we can use the holiday to our advantage to get in a bit of an extra workout without much effort at all!
Last Minute Candy Shopping: Shopping for 10 minutes = 23 calories Plus, you'll burn bonus calories if you have to dig through all the terrible, left over candy to find the good stuff!
Carve a Jack o' Lantern: Carving a pumpkin for 15 minutes = 39 calories Your front entryway will look extra festive with lots of flickering pumpkin faces... the more, the better! (and think of all the calories you'll burn!)
Prep Their Stomachs: Cooking for 30 minutes = 78 calories Don't let them roam the street with empty stomachs! Cook them something healthy before they stuff themselves with candy!
Do The Monster Mash: Dancing for 15 minutes = 87 calories At a Halloween Party? Hit the dance floor. Have little ones? Help them boogie out their excitement while they wait to go trick-or-treating.
Trick-or-Treating: Scrounging for Candy for One Hour = 205 calories Depending on the ages of the children you'll be trick-or-treating with, this could be a major workout. Burn bonus calories by carrying worn out toddlers or by running to keep up with those tweens that are trying to ditch you!
Cleanup: Car washing for 15 minutes = 66 calories Did you make the mistake of giving out those tiny boxes of raisins to trick-or-treaters? If so, there's a good chance that your car got egged and you'll have to clean it off!
Brush Away the Damage: Brushing your teeth for 5 minutes = 12 calories No matter how tired you are, tonight is definitely not the night to skip your nightly dental hygiene routine.
*Note, all calorie estimates were based on a 130-pound female, so you may have to adjust your candy intake / Monster Mashing to balance the calories in / out.
