Winter Activities And How Many Calories You Burn
People tend to gain about five to seven pounds during the holiday season because of holiday parties with cookies and alcohol, dinners with second helpings and cold weather that makes you dread working out. But what a lot of people don't know is that winter can be one of the best times of the year to exercise.

Sledding/Tobogganing: Burns about 120 calories every 15 minutes
Take your children sledding for an afternoon and you could burn over 500 calories. Sledding works your quads and calves for an intense period of time (climbing up the hill) and then lets the muscle relax for a small period of time (sledding down the hill) before re-doing the workout, according to Shape, a fitness magazine. This is a workout that can also be fun.
