Your Halloween Survival Guide

Boo!

Happy Halloween!

I’m back! (After a slight hiatus in newsletters)

You know what’s awaiting you today. Candy left, right, and center. It’s ok. You’re gonna be prepared and you’re gonna stay in control. Right?

With a few simple tips, you’re guaranteed to rock this Halloween without sabotaging your fitness goals.

1. Drink loads of water all day. (This is true for any day not just Halloween!)

2. Get in a workout, an intense one! If you need ideas, let me know, and I’ll send you something you can do from home. Think squats, lunges, pushups, burpees, etc.

3. Pick a number. And stick to it. This is the number of Halloween treats you’re planning to indulge in. (<5 please!!) Having a simple plan like this will help you stay in control. Email me your number and I’ll help hold you accountable. I’ll tell you my number if you tell me yours!

4. Get back on track right away with your clean eating on Thursday.

Have a safe and happy Halloween,

Meryl
