You Ate Lay's Potato Chips--Now What!?!

You know the phrase: "You can't just eat one!"

With summertime comes more outdoor barbecues, picnics and pool parties. It is hard to resist the potato chips that seem to always be present at these parties. Sometimes you just give in. Remember to always portion and not just stand by the bowl and eat the chips. Put them on a plate and walk away. It is key to manage the indulgence and any possible guilt. Guilt can cause havoc with our psyche and press us into overindulging.
 
I came across a listing of foods we sometimes treat ourselves to. I like how the facts were broken down, including the various ways we could burn off what we just ate. It allows us to take responsibility and avoid the guilt. I hate looking at potato chips on my hips....now I can avoid it!

Here are the facts:
You ate: 3-ounces lay’s potato chips
Calories: 450
Fat: 30 grams
Now burn it off with:
135 minutes of miniature golf
90 minutes of car washing
50 minutes of rock climbing



Now go out and enjoy the summer! And Live Vibrant!
