Halloween is full of tricks and treats! Make sure you aren’t tricked by all those treats and follow this trick-or-treating walk and workout routine.
Before getting to the trick-or-treating routine, remember to protect your feet with the correct shoe wear. Many costumes suggest shoes that don't have support or don't fit appropriately. After some time on your feet, inappropriate foot wear can cause arch pain, heel pain, and even blisters. Wear shoes or sneakers that have arch support, that do not rub on bony areas causing blisters and that fit appropriately. I suggest sneakers or tennis shoes. They may not go exactly with your costume, but I promise nobody will notice and you will feel a lot happier being able to walk longer without pain.
Here is the routine that combines trick-or-treating and working out. Do it while you take the kids (or yourself) around the neighborhood, and you won’t feel guilty about sneaking a snickers or two!
Once you have your mask or costume on, put on your comfortable shoes and get ready! I recommend planning out your route prior to Halloween to make sure you know exactly all your stops.
1. As you walk out the door, begin by doing walking lunges down the block. You can also skip to bring your heart rate up a bit.
2. While waiting at each door to open, do jumping jacks but make sure not to drop any candy!
3. For each piece of candy you have in your bag do a squat. For example, one Reese’s do 1 squat. If you get to your next house and have 1 Reese’s, 2 snickers do 3 squats and so on. As your bag fills up you will do more and more squats with a heavier and heavier bag. Challenge yourself!
4. As the bag gets heavier you can do bicep curls and shoulder shrugs on your way to each house.
After you return home for the night, make sure to stretch for about 5-10 minutes. Enjoy your treats and don’t feel bad about having an extra piece of candy, you deserve it!
Have a Happy & Healthier Halloween! ;)

Your Feet Are Your Foundation. Protect Them With The Appropriate Footwear. Soft Science Shoes Review
Healthy footwear begins with proper biomechanics. Many shoe companies compromise on important aspects of a proper shoe, such as support, stability, toe box width/height and cushioning. For me, it has been difficult to find a brand that incorporates all of these aspects PLUS is lightweight, dries quickly and is slip resistant!
About a year ago I came across SoftScience™ footwear. This brand of comfort footwear began In 2013 by Scott Seamans a founder and chief designer of Crocs, and John Duerden former president and chief operating officer of Reebok. The two got together and set out to design shoes that would take comfort casual footwear design to a new level. SoftScience uses a material on all of their outsoles and footbeds named Trileon™ which is a lightweight yet dense closed cell co-polymer that is highly resilient, supportive and odor resistant. Their shoes provide a cushioned and supportive design helping to reduce foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.
They base the structure of their shoes on simple principles of biomechanics in order to provide the wearer with all day comfort and support. One such principle is supporting the foot in a level and neutral position in order to allow the body to align properly. This level foot position has a zero heel rise or drop keeping the front of the foot at the same level as the heel. Shoes with minimal elevation changes from heel to toe keep the foot level, which is natural and healthy and helps disperse body weight evenly across the sole of the foot, reducing pressure points.
SoftScience™ footwear also has a generous toe-box and fit that allows the foot and toes to spread out and relax in a natural alignment. The contoured footbed is designed to evenly distribute the body’s weight to reduce pressure points. All of these elements together make for one amazing comfort shoe! They are perfect for wearing while fishing, boating, a day at the beach and even when working in doctors offices and hospitals.

Did you know that mushrooms are one of the world's most well studied superfoods and are jam packed with amazing benefits? Medicinal mushrooms and mushroom extracts have been used in Chinese medicine and worldwide. Mushrooms like Lentinula edodes (shiitake) and Cordyceps, have a history of medicinal use for millennia in parts of Asia.
It has recently become much easier to find and consume high quality medicinal mushrooms. I personally use medicinal mushroom coffees, elixirs, hot cacoa and superfood blends. I mainly use medicinal mushrooms for cognitive enhancement during work and increased energy and stamina for exercise. Reishi mushrooms help me relax and unwind at the end of the day. Don't forget to check out the end of this post where I give you my daily medicinal mushroom schedule!
Luckily, my friends over at Four Sigmatic have developed mushroom coffees, mushroom elixirs, mushroom hot cacao and mushroom superfood blends that fit my healthy and active lifestyle!

Some Types of Medicinal Mushrooms
CHAGA - ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES:
Chaga mushroom can help support immune functions. It is called the king of mushrooms. You'll find growing naturally in the wild and it has antioxidant properties.
LION'S MANE - BRAIN & NERVOUS SYSTEM
Lion's Mane is an all-natural cognitive enhancer. It has been shown to support memory and
REISHI - STRESS & SLEEP
If you have occasional stress and difficulty sleeping, Reishi mushroom can help you relax and
get a good night sleep.
CORDYCEPS - ENERGY & PERFORMANCE
Cordyceps is an adaptogen, not a stimulant, so it helps you produce and maintain steady
energy levels. Coffee can give you an energy spike, followed by a crash; cordyceps, on the
other hand, helps your body produce its own energy.
Plus, mushrooms don’t just benefit our bodies’ internal environment. They can also improve the health of the ecosystems on which our very survival relies.
Find Your Perfect Mushroom
Here’s how I’ve been reaping the awesome benefits of mushrooms throughout my day:
- 7AM: Grab the day by the horns with a Chaga Elixir (their antioxidant properties make me feel like a superhero!)

- 6PM: Pre-workout cup of Cordyceps Elixir to even out the energy levels and guarantee a high-impact workout
