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.

It certainly makes you really consider wasting precious calories when you realise how hard you need to work to burn them off 😊

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