I’ll just work it off tomorrow, it’ll be ok..

img_6609Sound familiar?

Well have a look at this picture then. This person has just run 3.1miles, which is just over 5km. They did it at quite a decent pace: 9:15 minute miles which is just over 5 minute / km. that’s around 30 mins of hard running.

Consider this for a moment. Look at the devices calculation for the calories spent: 394.

You could easily consume this amount of calories by eating ONE of the items of this list;

  • 2 Moro bars
  • Small tub of ice cream
  • 2 avocados
  • 3.5 bananas
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 2.5 glasses of red wine
  • 1 large slice of pizza
  • 1 small McDonald’s fries
  • 1/2 a cheeseburger
  • 1/2 a sweet muffin
  • 1 bagel
  • 1 small bottle of Diet Coke (or similar)

This list is by no means comprehensive!

So, perhaps it’s worth thinking again when you decide its ok, I’ll work it off tomorrow, or – I exercised this morning so I can have this..
