Worried about overindulging in Halloween candy? Health & Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour is here to share with us what we’d need to do to burn off 200 calories worth of candy!
Remember, making healthy eating choices should be because you value your body and you want to put good things into yourself.
Working out is separate – it’s also good for your body. But hopefully this will make you think twice before you eat your candy. And remember, eating protein every few hours will help stave off sugar cravings!
35 minutes of Zumba or dancing to your favorite song
Watch your favorite TV show at the gym on the bike for 30 minutes.
60 minutes of light weight lifting (can show with dumbbells) and body weight strength training
Squats for about 15 minutes straight – using your legs which are the biggest muscle groups so burn more calories faster as opposed to working the arms or upper body.
Push ups at a moderate pace for 40 minutes straight
20 minutes of high intensity interval training: mixing cardio + weights – can show this or also have clip from my workout DVD showing this
The great thing about this is that you’ll burn calories even after you work out, even when you’re sleeping, as opposed to cardio which only burns calories while you’re doing it.
About 30 minutes of Vinyasa yoga
40 minutes raking leaves
2 hours of clothes shopping – carrying, walking around
Buy groceries for 45 minutes, carry bags up stairs for 5, and put away for 15 minutes.
