With Halloween on the brain, I was thinking of suggesting that this week you try not to eat any Halloween candy. I even thought of making that this week’s challenge, but then I thought that was mean and probably near impossible.

Next, I considered suggesting people only eat candy on Halloween Day, but then I realized if you take kids trick-or-treating that is probably a ridiculous request.

So hear is what I’m going to suggest instead as an attempt to keep your body a little healthier this Halloween season. Try these two things:

1) Since you are probably going to add some Halloween candy this week, eliminate a dessert you would have normally had. Don’t go out for ice cream if that is something you do. Or don’t have dessert when you get together with family or friends.

2) Try to add 10-minutes to your exercise routine every day. Maybe get up 10-minutes earlier to fit this in or go for a 10-minute speed walk on your lunch break.
