Welcome to Fit Family Carnival!
This is my weekly look at how I can help my family stay fit. I'm doing it along with my friend Linda and if she wasn't so lazy she'd have a linky for me BUT, since she does not, I ask that you link any and all fitness posts or tips (maybe you tweeted a fit family tip?) in a comment so that we all (all 2 of us) may benefit.
Here are my 5 Best tips for NOT eating all the Halloween candy lying around your house.
1. Throw it out
Let your kids keep their age in pieces and then toss the rest. OR let them eat their fill one night and then toss the rest.
2. Hide it
Stick it in a Halloween bag and hide it with all the decorations until next year and regift to next year's trick-or-treaters
3. Bake with it
Find a recipe that calls for Snickers, M&Ms or pieces of lollipops and start baking away! Freeze until you have guests over and let them eat all that goodness.
4. Bring it to work
OK, not original but it gets it out of your house. The trick is to get it into an area of your office or building that YOU don't frequent. Give it to your favorite boss, the mail room folks, or leave a big bowl with the developers.
5. Mail it to Santa
I hear somehow letters find their way. Surely the big guy(s) answering his letters are in need of a little sugar high. Right?
What are your tips for not eating all that tempting candy?
