What Bad Food Cost Us In Exercise...

This week my husband read this article and forwarded it to me. I found it very interesting. Here are what these food cost us in exercise:

Dunkin Donuts Chocolate Frosted Donut (230 calories)
59 minutes of walking (3 mph).

McDonald's Egg McMuffin (300 calories)
32 minutes of running (5 mph).

Panera Chocolate Chipper (440 calories)
62 minutes of biking (10-11.9 mph).

Pizza Hut Large Hand-Tossed Style Cheese Pizza (1 slice; 320 calories)
39 minutes of swimming (slow to moderate laps).


Starbucks Cinnamon Roll (500 calories, varies by location)
85 minutes of dancing.


Burger King Original Whopper With Cheese (770 calories)

94 minutes of swimming (slow to moderate laps).


Au Bon Pain Chocolate Chip Brownie (380 calories).

129 minutes of yoga (Hatha style).

Isn't that something Sarah? Every Friday night my hubby and I get pizza. We could blow our whole healthy eating in one meal!!!! Glad to see your Fitness Friday post.

WOW!It's always good to see it in black and white. The only thing on here that I eat and that's rarely is pizza. It's good to know what we're getting into. I'll have to put that article on my blog next week.

I'm getting off line for the weekend and wanted to tell you that I love you and I said a prayer for you.

Well...that explains a lot. Namely why my shorts are all too tight after one week of vacation, despite the 1-hour walks each morning. Not enough to counteract the nightly ice cream runs...and the pizza, pasta, glass of wine, sunchips, etc, etc, etc...

You didn't link up today! I miss you on Fitness Friday! snif!

French fries with chicken is what I take for lunch thrice in a week. I was told not to eat it too much if I want to stay healthy but, I love the combination.. but will try to stay away a litle..

Thanks for the post...
