We joke about the season of fat, kind of. I do not own a scale but I do own a “skinny mirror” that is encouraging in certain situations. The TRUTH is… we are girls – we are a little crazy. Hear me out. I truly believe that what we consume and how we feel will reflect on the outside. If you are feeling energized and great, it will show.. and guess what? Confident and happy girls are the prettiest girls :) THAT is the BEC girl.. Constantly evolving and not taking life too seriously. The superficial reasons for eating healthy should NOT be the number one reason we are living a healthy lifestyle. (NEVER SAY ON A DIET. DIETS SUCK) I want you to really think about what I am about to say… What we consume is either going to promote health or promote disease and it is important to keep that in mind for ourselves and the next generation. Alright you crazy, beautiful, fierce babes, let’s get back on subject this read.
Halloween is one of those days that I would like to party it up and then go on with it’s bad self. But unfortunately, due to the excessive candy (and possible hangover) it lingers.. It sits… it’s in the cabinet “hiding” from us for weeks. We reach, we eat, we crave, we cave. That candy is filled with our arch nemesis(ES).. PLURAL… aka high fructose corn syrup, food coloring, artificial everything that can lead to everything we hate. Why? Because it will lead to highs that inevitably lead to lows, headaches, allergies, stomach aches, melt downs, and the list goes on. Our body has no idea what to do with that. It attacks our cells and stores as fat and toxins. We try as hard as possible to keep it real. Keep it recognizable.
I dedicate this post to every single person on Halloween who can’t stop, won’t stop unwrapping the candy wrappers. And of course, a special shout out to the moms who thrive (or not) and live vicariously through our babes around Halloween (that can be me). I know that when my kiddos dump that candy on the floor my initial reaction is extreme anxiety. Seriously, I cannot attend Halloween events at school because I despise candy and even more, kids ON candy. I then scan the candy- You got any of those Kit Kats in there? How about…REESES? Maybe grab a couple and GET OUT. Get your 4 pieces to love on if you must because BEC does not want to deprive you completely, but we all know candy is like a drug. It is hard to stop. Tiffany (or HELGA) and I (UNI) have provided you with great tips and product options to avoid deprivation and make sure your hottie body continues to thrive through Halloween and TSOF (the season of fat). Please excuse me, the lack of oxygen was affecting my recollection of certain ingredients in the video. Check it :)
