    Fire Burning Calories Walking

    Well, the last few weeks I've still managed to get in my workouts (almost everyday), as well as some walking here and there, particularly since I find myself sitting in front of the computer more than I probably should.

    This morning, I just couldn't bring myself to workout, so I walked 8.2 miles with ankle weights on, instead.

    I thought the following chart might be helpful to folks wondering just how many calories they are burning by getting a walk in each day:

    Use the chart below to figure your average weight, walking at a speed of 3 miles an hour, you will burn calories at the following rate:

    * 130 to 140 pounds - 3.5 calories burned per minute
    * 145 to 155 pounds - 4.0 calories burned per minute
    * 160 to 170 pounds - 4.5 calories burned per minute
    * 175 to185 pounds - 5.0 calories burned per minute
    * 190 to 200 pounds - 5.5 calories burned per minute
    * 205 to 215 pounds - 6.0 calories burned per minute

    So, if you weighed 145 lbs and you walked 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, you would be burning 120 calories per day or 600 per week. Just by walking an extra 30 minutes a day!

    I love walking my hills in the warm month's. Feel like water in the winter, guess I should get me some snow shoes and do just that!
