Whether you're looking to burn calories through a workout or while doing everyday activities, burning 80 calories takes just a few minutes of your time. For a 150-pound woman, 80 calories can be burned quickly with less than 15 minutes of moderate activity, and in just 30 minutes with less strenuous activities. This is roughly equivalent to a small sugar free vanilla latte, one piece of string cheese, one egg, one cup of minestrone soup or one fat free pudding snack cup.
Get domestic. Thirty minutes of dusting or ironing burns 80 calories, as does spending half an hour making dinner and setting the table. After dinner, another half hour spent washing dishes burns another 80 calories.
Go for a walk or jog. A half hour 2 mph stroll easily burns 80 calories, and if you step it up to 3 mph you can cut nearly 10 minutes off that time. If you have only 10 minutes to spare, jogging the entire time will knock those 80 calories out quickly.
Play with your children. Mimicking the running around children do for 20 minutes will burn 80 calories, as will 25 minutes of playing Frisbee with them. Or have a dance party in your living room to burn those 80 calories; throw your hands in the air and dance it up to some fast songs for 12 minutes.
Run several errands at once. Driving for half an hour alone will burn 80 calories, and the stops you make only add to the burn. When you get home, 30 minutes of unloading the car and putting groceries away uses up another 80 calories.
