Ding, Dong! Turn Halloween Into a Calorie-Busting Workout

By , SparkPeople Blogger
The candy is supposed to be given away, a prize for the little trick or treaters hiking up hills both ways to hit every house in the neighborhood before the sun goes down. That's the plan, anyway. But when you're sitting there by the door for two, maybe three hours, that huge bowl of fun-sized candies staring you in the face, it can be really easy to grab one, then three more, and a few more before calling it quits for the night. They're bite-sized and harmless enough, after all.
Even though it's just one night, Halloween can be a terrifying trap for your health goals. You don't have to fall in the fun-sized hole, though. Instead of grabbing every candy that crosses your path Halloween night, use the cute, scary and downright clever trick or treaters as an impetus to workout. The concept is simple: We matched some of the best Halloween costumes with an exercise move. When that doorbell rings, check out the costumes, deliver the goods to each trick or treater, then perform the move while you wait for the next group to arrive. Get in the spirit by throwing on your best Richard Simmons getup and get sweating!
