Tons of Extra Thanksgiving Calories Hanging with You?
That Thanksgiving Dinner and all the leftovers may have you feeling sluggish and heavy. There is a reason. The traditional holiday meal gives us 3000 to 5000 calories in just one sitting. This is 3 times the calories I need in a day and at least double what my husband should be eating.
We know this isn't particularly good for us so here are some suggestions from Gizmodo.com and News.health.com that will help you get back to feeling good and burn some extra calories throughout the holiday season.
All of these will take moving your body and increasing your heart rate a bunch. These will burn off up to 4000 extra calories. Take smaller doses of these activities throughout the party season and you can keep your weight constant and feel better too.
- 7.5 hours of running
- 10 Hours swimming
- 7 hours of cycling at 12-14 miles an hour
- 7 hours of touch football
- 13 hours of walking at 3.5 mph
- 7 hours of swimming laps
- Almost 5 hours of jumping rope
- 12 hours of lifting weights
- 9 hours of vigorous dancing
- 19 hours of average intensity sex
This is over and above your the regular exercise you get. Maybe next year you may want to start a few weeks before Thanksgiving so you will have no guilt at the big meals. Continue your exercise routine and more throughout the holidays and beyond and you will be looking and feeling good into the New Year.
Looking for a new home can burn a lot of calories too. It takes walking, thinking and checking things out. A day of looking at homes will burn a lot of extra calories, too.
