Now think back... how many pieces did you eat last Hallow'en? How about the days after Hallowe'en?

Now imagine this.  How many minutes, roughly, would you have to exercise to burn off those itsy bitsy, teeny, harmless little treats?...

(based on a 150-lb woman; if you weigh less, you burn fewer calories, and if you weigh more, you burn more calories)

1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (80 cals) (this is hubby's favourite... or one of his favourites...)

Walking 4.0 mph - 14 minutes

Hatha Yoga - 30 minutes

Belly Dancing - 15 minutes

Bootcamp - 10 minutes

 

Not quite so yummy-looking anymore, are they?  Check out this Hallowe'en Hangover guide... just in case you didn't read this in time.

Happy Hallowe'en!
