Don’t let the end of swimsuit season mean the end of striving to reach your weight loss goals! As we say goodbye to summer and wholeheartedly embrace the cooler temperatures of October, we are given the opportunity to recommit to our weight loss goals. Whether you are just starting your weight loss journey, continuing the quest to your goal weight, or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, take advantage of these tips to help you navigate the onset of holiday season.
1. October is essentially the beginning of a month-long Halloween celebration. Who doesn’t love hunkering down and watching scary movies while planning this year’s costume? Pro tip for scary movie marathons: consider switching out store-bought popcorn for a healthier alternative like Medifast Sea Salt Popcorn or Medifast Cheddar & Sour Cream Popcorn – take it one step further with Healthy Popcorn Balls. You can also combat the chilly nights ahead with a mug of Medifast Hot Cocoa!
2. If your Halloween traditions include trick-or-treating, consider purchasing fewer bags of candy to prevent overstocking and creating a risky situation. Donate leftover candy, and stay away from leaving an ever-tempting candy bowl out on the counter.
3. As the seasons change there are so many opportunities to stay active in Minnesota. Enjoy a day with the whole family at a local apple orchard such as Minnetonka Orchards in Minnetonka, Victoria Valley Orchard in St. Paul or Sekapp Orchard in Rochester. If your family loves carving jack-o-lanterns, spend the day picking pumpkins at Dehn’s Pumpkins in Dayton or Pampered Pumpkin CSA and Pumpkin Patch in Watertown. Looking for a good haunted house or spooky maze? Try the Trail of Terror in Shakopee or Scream Town in Chaska.
