I suppose it depends on who you're around. A lot of people overestimate how much they burn.
Be proud of your running, it takes a lot of perseverance to get to 30 min!
I totally agree with this. I do know a few people including myself who have given themselves permission to have whatever just because we did this and that as well as overestimated calories burned. Once I got into calorie counting and learning all about it, man it opened my eyes! No more of that!
