HIT THE TRAIL
Hitting the trail for a moderately strenuous hike can burn off a peanut butter cup (plus a few bonus calories) in just 15 minutes. With all the gorgeous fall foliage to take in, chances are you won’t even notice the workout. Add a backpack to your trek, and you’ll burn an additional 80 calories per hour.
DO YARD WORK
Raking leaves, cleaning the gutters and other fall yard work is inevitable. If you need a little extra motivation to check those chores off your list, know that they can be surprisingly good calorie burners. While raking, throw in some walking lunges and squats to boost your heart rate and burn off a few extra calories.
GO FOR A JOG
Before winter weather makes outdoor runs a distant dream, enjoy the crisp cool air and fall foliage while burning off the equivalent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Just 15 minutes of jogging (at a pace of less than 5 mph) burns more than 100 calories. Pick up the pace for a solid 6 or 7 mph, and you’ll burn off the whole pack.
