Burning Summer Calories

The summer solstice is upon us (at 7:09pm EST, in fact!) - and that means summertime is about to be in full swing - hooray!  Warm weather!  Watermelon!  Other words beginning with "W"!

As much as I love this time of year, it's not always the easiest season to maintain a healthy lifestyle, since, if you're like me, you tend to inhale pretty much every good comestible in sight as you make your way through barbecues, picnics, ball games, pool parties, and the like.

Luckily, Fitsugar posted an amusing and helpful chart that equalizes yummy summer eats and drinks to fun calorie burners in an aptly titled post called How to Work Off a Corona and Other Summer Favorites.

It's a great way of keeping things in perspective, too - multiple hours of tennis to make up for a funnel cake will certainly make me reconsider my portion size when it comes to that delectable treat!  

Hope you enjoy!

Check out the whole article here.

By the way, Fitsugar (as you may know from my Monday Afternoon Links posts) is one of my favorite health blogs.  They have tons of great fitness, food, and general well-being tips and ideas and present them in super cute ways.

Check them out, and get inspired to be healthy!
