Few things smell better than a cinnamon roll fresh out of the oven. (Cinnabon continues to bank on this one basic fact!) That’s one of the reasons I avoid a certain bakery in my neighborhood. Even walking in front of the building makes my mouth water—the cinnamon rolls smell (and taste!) that good.
But sometimes I give in, as I did earlier this week. The sweet scent was just too good to pass up. Of course, this came at a cost. Like, a really big cost: 620 delicious calories, to be exact, which is higher than pretty much any other treat I’ve learned how to burn off—even donuts and biscuits and gravy.
So, how could I help rid my body of the extra 620 calories?
I could have done hot yoga for 149 minutes. (Okay scratch that—I can barely stand 60 minutes in that heat!)
I could have played tennis for 65 minutes.
Or I could have cleaned my house top to bottom for 172 minutes.
I opted to clean. And after nearly three hours of it, my house was possibly the neatest it had ever been!
