In case you were wondering...

Hey, did you get to the half-price Valentine candy sale yet? There's still time!

Just for fun, I did some mathematizing today. Here's the number of miles you'll need to run for each serving of valentine chocolate consumed (based on an average of 110 calories burned/mile; it varies from person to person):
  • Hershey's kisses (per 5 pieces): 1 mi.
  • 1 pkg Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares: 6.9 mi
  • Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Hazelnut Ball, per 3 pieces: 1.8 mi.
  • 1 Dove Double Chocolate Truffle: 1.6 mi
  • Whitman's Sampler (per 3 pieces) 2.3 mi
  • Chocolate-covered cherry: 1 mile each.

Yeah, I know. I nag because I care. No need to thank me, or to send me hate mail, either.


  1. How many miles for a BIG HUGE piece of choclate on chocolate on chocolate cake with choclate dipped strawberries on it? just curious....

  2. I had a Hershey's kiss on Valentine's Day after my swim. They were giving them away at the pool ...

  3. How did you know? Just last night I grabbed a bag of H kisses from the half price shelf. I ran 4 miles, swam 3,000 and I'm gonna crack into that bag this weekend.

  4. I hate to even admit this, but I broke down last night and had some of the dark chocolate Moose Munch that I gave my husband for V-day. And it was good, dammit. :P

  5. The cost of not sweating the numbers on a love-fest holiday?



  6. Mrs Bigun, you can get calorie counts of different foods at

  7. Thank heaven that I don't like chocolate--- wonder what Peeps are though.

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
