Go Trick or Treating
If you feel like you will be tempted to eat candy when staying at home then go out with the kids trick or treating. It will allow you to get some steps in and burn some calories.
Don’t Sit Still
If you must stay home to hand out candy keep moving. Don’t sit on the front porch and wait for trick or treaters. Stay away from the door and force yourself to walk from the back of the house every time the doorbell rings. Or put on a work out DVD to do in between visitors.
Even the most disciplined person can be tempted to indulge on Halloween. The trick is to just eat a little, so you feel satisfied without overdoing it. Pick out your favorite candy and just have a bite or two to fulfill the craving.
