Exercise!

 

The best way of getting rid of the calories you consume during the festive season is to burn them off, so instead of snuggling up on the sofa with a DVD, wrap up and get out in the fresh air. Even gentle exercise will get your body burning calories, so you can go back to the sofa and not feel guilty about having a mince pie! 

1h jogging = 600 cal
1h sledging = 400 cal
1h skiing = 388 cal
1h ice-skating = 360 cal
1h swimming = 250 cal
1h gentle walking = 180 cal

30 min piling wood = 180 cal
30 min sweeping snow = 170 cal
30 min hoovering = 135 cal
