I surprised myself and wasn’t a total candy
whore addict on Halloween. I do need to get back on the no-sugar bandwagon, I can feel myself slipping. Can’t give an alcoholic a “tiny sip,” if you know what I mean.
If you are coming down from your sugar high, Outside Magazine puts some of your worries at ease in “How To: Turn Leftover Halloween Candy into Workout Fuel” –
Bottom line: If you’re going to finish off the leftover Halloween candy anyway, eat it after your workout. Post-workout nutrition is an important habit, and if it takes candy to help you establish that habit, so be it. Just don’t make candy corn your default post-workout meal. It lacks important nutrients, and it’s easy to overindulge on sweet candy so the calories will add up—and fast.

Sharpie Sporting football star Terrell Owens but he has a solid work ethic the man makes a valid argument: “I liken my training to a bank account…you’re only going to get out of that bank account what you put into it. Basically, that’s how I look at my workouts. I’m only going to get out of my workouts what I put into them.”

Did anyone give away their Halloween candy or have another creative way of making sure it doesn’t get devoured all at once?
