A calorie burned is a calorie earned

Or something like that.

Today I figured out that our daily walk to school and back only burns somewhere between 33 (Garmin estimate) and 44 (Fitday estimate) calories.

At that rate I'll have to walk to school and back between 80 and 106 times in order to burn a pound's worth of calories. That's ten weeks of walks to school and back.

Guess I'll have to crank up the old exercise routine a bit more than that this week, eh?

there was a sunday cartoon many years back, can't remember which one, but it showed the route to school that the kid walked and it was definitely more than 33 calories. the route was 3 or 4 times longer than the actual needed distance because it had so many side trips and explorations and back and forths.
Be a kid again. : D
