Calorie counting challenge














Anthony introduced me to the fine art of Slurpee drinking. On the day we moved my mom and dad to their new home Anthony and I both drank 4 40 oz. Slurpees. That translates into +/-2200 calories! Pretty sweet until you realize how many calories you have to burn. I looked it up. You pick what you would do.....

1. 612 minutes of walking
2. 252 minutes of jogging
3. 184 minutes of swimming
4. 336 minutes of cycling
5. 780 minutes of walking combined with lifting 25,000 lbs.

As for Anthony and I we pick #5.......We are both overachievers so why stop at 612 minutes of walking. 780 here we come. Then what the heck bring on the 25,000 lbs.........

The only thing I was sad about was that we could have had a fifth Slurpee and all would have been well (765 minutes of walking and 2750 calories). Next time.....next time......

After my last marathon I looked up to see how many calories I could indulge on and an article I was reading said I could eat an entire snickers bar and 6 starburst!

That is hilarious. The good news is I am pretty sure you clocked in 780 minutes of walking and lifted 25,000 lbs on moving day. Remember moving the full freezer:)
