How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop? A group of students recently found, through the use of a “licking machine” that it takes exactly 364 licks.  

Steps across the kingdom? That depends on where you are going and how long your legs are. But no matter what, you will rack up those miles. 

My vacation would not be complete without my fitbit. Sound a little crazy to you? Surrounded by food, other vacation temptation, it’s great to know that I am logging in miles and miles of steps… at least 20,000 a day!!! This is even without going to the hotel gym. 

So, take the stairs, walk from your resort to the theme park and budget the extra time. Your legs will thank you!

While the tootsie pop debuted in 1931, (click tootsie to see the 1970s commercial that still runs through my head), the fitbit company was founded in 2007 and is still kicking. After trying several fitbits, my choice is the Blaze, pictured below – because you can read texts and see who is calling without looking at your phone.

Regular walking can not only help you lose weight, but its easier on the knees than running. Walking improves mood and strengthens muscles. You lose 1 lb of weight for every 3,500 calories you burn walking. Be sure to drink plenty of water!!

Why tootsie rolls? Well, you can eat plenty of them if you are walking through the kingdom. And everything will look might good. How many steps have you racked up at Disney?

Walk instead of taking that stroller/shuttle/bus ride.

Let us know what you think!!
