Fitness Friday: A Few Less Jelly Beans, A Little Less Jiggle

With Easter egg hunts and candy abounding, it's real easy to have too many jelly beans. All the candy that the kids don't like - Goes to mama!  All the candy that was bought extra - Goes to mama!  All the candy that goes on sale - Goes to mama!

Then, what happens to it?

All those jelly beans m,ake a jelly belly, and not the flavored jelly bean kind nor the jolly jelly belly form either.

So, now is the time to say no!  OK, not no to everything. It's ok to let yourself have a jelly bean here and there, or even on Easter.

But, just don't sit down to the entire bag while fending off others in your household who want to help you finish off, even the black ones.

Turn a blind eye to those candy sales.

Host your own buy back program for your child's candy. Exchange the pieces for a penny a piece, and then allow him or her to buy a fun toy with the earnings.

Have some fun!  For every jelly bean or chocolate egg you allow into your mouth, do 20 situps. For that hollow chocolate bunny - Go for a walk around the block.

Take the whole family, and get the family involved.

Enjoy those Easter baskets filled with candy, but make it more inviting to refocus onto healthier options.
