Will Walk for Wine
After a long absence, I dusted off my treadmill this morning (which also included lifting the 20 pound feline who's made it his bed) and hopped back on. I didn't want to, had all kinds of excuses not to, but then I remembered a game I played when I used to exercise consistently. It's called "walk for wine" and consists of staying on the treadmill or walking path until I am sure that I've burned enough calories to equal a glass of wine..or two. Now, you all know how much I enjoy my chardonnay yet I feel guilty indulging in empty calories so this is the perfect solution! No walking? Then no wine. Ha!
So I turned up my i-pod and kept in mind how lovely a nice cool glass of vino would taste during happy hour tonight...worked and walked and focused and before I knew it 30 minutes had passed and lookie here!
30 minutes, 1.7 miles = 212 calories burned, enough for 3 glasses of wine if I so choose! No saying I'm going to drink all three, but you know...just in case...wink..
Have a Beauty-Full Day,
