Burn Time

Last Wednesday I went and saw American Sniper (fantastic movie by the way) with a friend. While we were waiting in line for popcorn I overheard a girl saying that she didn’t want anything from the concession stand especially since a small popocorn with butter would take her 140 minutes on the elliptical machine…. WHAT! At that point I probably should of stepped out of line and passed up on the popcorn, but moderation is key… right? When I got home I looked up common “junk foods”, the calorie counts and how long it would take to work it off. Let me tell you it really put things in perspective for me.

Glazed doughnut (200 calories): 53 minutes of lunges (ouch)
1 slice of pepperoni pizza (260 calories): 272 consecutive burpees (yikes!)
1 M&M (3.4 calories): Walking the length of a football field
1 small theater popcorn and butter (630 calories): 135 minutes on the elliptical
1 medium size bagel + cream cheese (400 calories): 2 hours and 15 minutes of yoga
