HOLIDAY TREATS AND WINTER EXERCISE

We all want the chance to indulge a little during the holiday season, but the important thing to keep in mind is balance.  Make time for exercise during the holidays and stop feeling guilty about eating a slice of Mom’s famous pecan pie.  Check the chart below for wintry activities to burn off your holiday treats.

 

 (All exercise calculations for a 150 lb woman)

·         Drink 2 glasses of wine (200-250 calories), burn it off by snowshoeing for 30 minutes (250 calories burned, works quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors and abductors.  Add some poles and you’ll work your chest, back, triceps and biceps too!)

·         Eat 1 slice of pecan pie (500 calories), burn it off by downhill skiing for 1 hour, 15 minutes (500 calories burned, works core muscles, gluteus maximus, quadriceps, and hamstrings.)

·         Drink 1 cup egg nog and eat 2 small pieces of fudge (400 calories and 140 calories respectively), burn it off by ice skating for 90 minutes (589 calories, works adductors, abductors, hamstrings, quadriceps and calves.)

·         Eat 1 cup stuffing (340 calories), burn it off by sledding for 45 minutes (321 calories burned, works core muscles, quadriceps, gluteus maximus)

·         Eat 1 cup green bean casserole (180 calories), burn it off by shoveling snow for 30 minutes (179 calories burned, works core muscles, deltoids, latissimus dorsi, quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteus maximus.)
