Calories and walking

Bit of enlightenment for me, downloaded MyFitnessPal this morning and have just returned from a fairly brisk 5 mile walk - and only burned about 400 kcals! In the old days I'd reward myself for such activity with a biscuit or nuts or something in the gob..... not now! A couple of biscuits would mean I'd just put on what I've enjoyed burning.

    Well done on the walk, enjoy your hard earned dinner 😊
