Halloween: The Really Hardcore Girls
Wear Lingerie And Animal Ears

It's true, Mean Girls is my second favorite movie of all time.  Right after Joe Dirt.

And in Mean Girls, the character Cady, played by Lindsay Lohan, puts it best,

"In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it. 

The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears."

"What are you supposed to be?"
"I'm a MOUSE!  DUH!"

So we've got less than a month if you want to get into that skin tight Halloween costume.

It's not very much time.

That's a good thing. 

Anyone can keep a diet and workout program ultra-tight for a few weeks. 

Any longer than that might actually take discipline. 

A few weeks we can do just on sheer force of not wanting to look bad. 

No one wants to be the girl dressed as a pumpkin.

So rocking your workouts and nutrition ultra-tight for a few weeks you could drop as much as 4-8 pounds of fat.

That should increase your choices of Halloween costumes drastically.

Here Is The "Lingerie and Mouse Ears" Workout Plan:

Step One: Find a really awesome Halloween Party to go to. 

If none of your friends are throwing parties that would inspire you to work out, then find a club downtown.

Step Two: Find a Halloween costume that's a little bit more rockstar than what you would normally wear.

Step Three: For the next few weeks, really kick ass on your workouts. 

A really kick ass workout should be a circuit of big movements like kettlebell swings squats, pushups, and dumbbell bent over rows.  

Step Four: Really kick ass on your diet.

Step Five: Show off at the Halloween Party.  You get bonus points for compliments from your friends or dirty looks from random girls.

Ok, I Know It Sounds Too Simple

It is simple.  Lets get real.  Most of you don't need more workout information.  What you need is a strong deadline and some accountability.

 You need a reason to make it happen NOW.

Your Deadline: Halloween Party

Your Accountability: Your Halloween Costume

So there you go.  Schedule your workouts.  Find your food log.  Call a workout buddy.  Make it happen.

OH! I love Halloween party but I am too BIG for that. I am already under diet plans as well as excercise, not sure which one will work!

George Samuelson, RKC

Josh, that's a pretty kick ass costume if you're going to be Lacey Chabert.

Kate

Hey Josh,

Can you do a post about Julianne Hough from Dancing with the Stars? Her body is PERFECT! And we'd all love to know how she does it (obviously she dances, but that can't be all she does.. the girl is TONED without being the least bit masculine.)

Josh Hillis

Jose, good job! Keep doing both!

George, dude do you like my costume?

Kate, I should totally do Julianne Hough! I'll give you a preview though - she does a lot of squats and lunges, and she's pretty much all about lifting with free weights.

Lykke

Hey Josh, I have a question for ya.
I've always thought Elisha Cuthbert has one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood. I've also read that she's "not a gym girl". She doesn't really do workouts. Now, I realize you can get far by running, staying active and eating right (her routine according to a blog I read), but still don't really believe she could get that fit without doing a single squat. What's your opinion?

Carrick

This is such a great idea!!! It's past Halloween already, but I have a holiday party to go to next month and I look like a freakin' football player in the halter dress I want to wear. I've taken a "before" picture and everything...and gonna try to hold myself to a full month of hard-core exercise and food log!
