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.
