With all this Easter candy around it has been really hard to be good. Ya feel me?
You should ALWAYS treat yourself. Little breaks in your healthy lifestyle is okay! Especially when it comes to the holidays. You should enjoy the little things, one day will not make you fat, nor will one day make you skinny. It is all a balance.
BUT! It is time to get a little break down on portion control when it comes to sweetening up our holiday.
Have you ever read the labels of your favorite Easter treats? Did you ever actually portion out what 100 calories would be for each of them? Let me put it into perspective for you (CAUTION! This may shock you)
Jelly Beans:17 beans = 102 calories
Peeps: 3.5 peeps = 98 calories (these are my downfall)
Cadbury Mini Eggs: 6 pieces = 96 calories
Cadbury Creme Egg: 2/3 of an egg = 100 calories
Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs: 2.5 mini eggs = 100 calories
Cadbury Caramel Egg: 2/3 of an egg = 113 calories
Cadbury Mini Eggs: 2 mini eggs = 90 calories
Peter Rabbit Chocolate Bunny: 1/4 bunny = 110 calories
Reese’s PB Egg: 2/3 egg = 113 calories (again, my downfall)
Reese’s PB Mini Eggs: 2.5 mini eggs = 100 calories
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Mini Eggs: 3.5 mini eggs = 102 calories
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs: 3 pieces = 100 calories
M&M’s: 1/8 cup = 105 calories
Well, now that we’ve all see what damage the candy can do. How about a workout to help alleviate some of those extra calories?
While some may not have time work a workout this weekend, why not incorporate one into your morning Easter Egg Hunt?!
The kids will love it, you’ll love it! Even if you don’t have kids, this would be fun to do on your own!
Here’s what you do. Fill your Easter Eggs with these exercises (or get creative)!
You can hide multiples of each exercise if you’d like or stick them in each egg with a piece of candy! The more the merrier!
See you can have your candy and stay on track!
Happy Easter everyone!
