Halloween Survival Guide for the Health Conscious

Halloween – it’s fun, everyone loves it and it always involves copious amounts of candy. How can someone who wants to stay healthy possibly navigate through Halloween? Well, never fear! Here is your Halloween survival guide for the health conscious.

Halloween Survival Guide for the Health Conscious

1. When you see kids approaching with candy, run, just run. In the opposite direction. Think of the calories you’ll burn (huzzah)!

2. Whenever anyone asks you if you want candy, just say you’re allergic! Candy is closely related to gluten. Yep. Tell family that it developed recently and they’ll never question you about it.

3. Bring carrot sticks with you everywhere. Tell people that you’re dressed up as a rabbit and everyone knows rabbits only eat carrots and lettuce. Duh.

4. Instead of trick or treating, go for a run! Run around everyone with candy and show everyone your willpower. 

5. Under no circumstances can you get drunk at a Halloween party – next thing you know, you’ll be accepting candy, ice-cream … it’s all downhill from there.

6. When people ask you not to be “lame”, tell them you can’t possibly let your Snapchat followers down by eating junk food and candy.

7. If you don’t have children and still wanna get that trick or treat buzz, borrow one! There’s no way you’ll eat candy that way – how can you possibly take away candy from a child?

8. Fly out of the country. They don’t celebrate Halloween in Indonesia, right?

Hahaha, and there you have it! If you hadn’t already guessed, this post was a bit of fun and my way of inserting humor into Halloween. I.e. I am totally joking with these ‘suggestions’. As always, balance is key! You can have candy for Halloween; just don’t eat the entire bag of it πŸ˜‰

Happy Halloween in advance!

    HAHA Alice! Hilarious! But I honestly feel like some of these can be of use to me. I’ll do my best not to get drunk (always involves me eating). I can’t let my insta followers down – how will my morning abs look after all that candy?! And my family will totally believe any fitness fact I tell them (plus a lot of H’ween treats DO have dairy!) because they think I’m crazy and up on “all the latest fitness stuff” πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the laugh. Hope you have a lovely Halloween weekend and I promise to still treat myself despite running away from/around all the trick or treaters lolol. Lots of love – @fitnyse.lyfe πŸ™‚
