Have You Been Sneaking the Candy Already?

on October 30, 2011

 

Back away from the bowl!

Did you dig into the Halloween stash yet?  Yes, I know it’s for the kids but I only had a few….

How much walking does it take to burn off those snack size treats? These amounts are approximate but you get the idea. 

1 fun size Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, Butterfinger, etc.=.80 mile or 1,600 steps, assuming your stride is 2,000 steps per mile

20 pieces of candy corn= 1 mile or 2,000 steps

2 Hersheys kisses=.50 mile

1 mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cup=1/3 mile or 660 steps

1 fun size M&M packet =.90 mile (really, almost 1 mile for that little packet? bummer)

Wow- that’s a lot of extra moving around just to break even!  Keep this in mind when you are tempted to reach for the candy bowl. 

If you do indulge- get up and MOVE!

Happy Halloween!
