You Ate It, Negate It – Easter Candy

I’ll be back later today to share the recap of my weekend, including a day at the LA Arboretum but first one of the highlights of my weekend – Easter candy! I LOVE Easter candy more than any other holiday. Give me some Peeps or Reese’s Pieces Eggs and I’m a happy girl. However, a few Reese’s Pieces Eggs can easily become 20 in a matter of minutes. When I look at the calorie count of candy, it is surprising how much a small piece of candy can be. It definitely makes me try to limit how much I am eating or follow my candy consumption with a workout. Today I have a “You Ate It, Negate It” workout for some of the popular Easter candy that was probably consumed this weekend.
