A new years resolution

Small Fruit Mix a great healthy snack
 I for one do not make new years resolutions. I end up breaking them within a week, so I made a decision years ago to stop making resolutions that could have been the one resolution that I kept, oh well.

This time of year many people make health and weight resolutions; health clubs see a rise in memberships and use, and believe it or not our store sees a trend as well. What we see is people purchasing healthier options such as:
The nuts are definitely a healthier option, but truth be told the dried fruits have sugar in them. Though the sugar free chocolates and candies do not have sugar they still have calories.
As you've been reading along you are probably wondering where is the Candy Man going with this? And the answer is that "exercise and eating in moderation" are the only way to see fit to your helth related resolutions. So indulge in confections, but just have one or two.
Here is an interesting fact -- the majority of American adults (54.1%) do not engage in the recommended minimum amount of physical activity (30 minutes per day of moderate activity, 5 days per week or 20 minutes per day of vigorous activity, 3 days per week, as recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association).

Roasted Mixed Nuts
That being said the way that I stay somewhat healthy and in shape is through exercise. I actually need to eat candy on a daily basis as part of our quality assurance program. Tough job but someone has to do it.

So a bizarre blog from the 'Life of the Candy Man' - don't make new year resolutions especially one you can't / don't plan on keeping and work out on a regular basis so you can eat what you want (at least in moderation).

Have a Sweet and Happy New Year!
