Rise & Grind: Grab coffee, Bring to mouth, take drink. Repeat several times. HA! That is my workout as of now but later on I will be doing this one: Grab a deck of cards. Do as many reps of each exercise as face value of the card.

It is finally feeling like fall here in Oklahoma. The temperatures are cooling and the mornings are crisp. We got our little girl her first Halloween costume last night & I can’t wait to take her out in it! Halloween has always been a fun holiday for me. While growing up, my mom would have a bonfire at our place for the kids to warm up around (we live in Wyo, it was usually snowing by halloween). This year will be a whole new chapter for us having our own baby. I am afraid dad will be eating her candy this year since she is still lacking teeth!
On the topic of candy, Do you let your kids eat all their halloween candy? This has been all over the news and blogs lately, the topic of halloween candy. I have heard some great ideas on halloween candy!
- Let them eat as much as they would like and offer to buy each piece they have left for 5 cents. Then, take them to the dollar store and let them buy a toy. (from Heidi Powells blog)
- Let your child pick out a certain number of pieces they want (5 or 10) and then take the rest.
- Dole out your candy and trade it with parents for healthy treats and toys.
- Eat it all!!!
Personally, I have not decided what to do with our child and the candy yet. Since she will not be eating crappy candy and food on a regular basis, I am ok with her eating a lot of it one night. Everyone needs to live a little! It is moderation that is key. Once Halloween night is over, the candy will go away and we can go back to healthy eating habits.
What are you doing for halloween with your candy?
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
