Believe it or not, the mathematics constant known as pi (3.141592653…) has it’s own day. On March 14th (3/14) every year, math nerds like myself come out of our studies to celebrate one of the greatest days on the planet.

On this day, pi and pie are both involved as pie is the designated food. It makes sense since they are the same pronunciation. In my 6th grade math class, pi day was the most serious day of the year. You were looked down upon if you didn’t show up to school with at least one pie.

However, splurging on pie can take you away from healthy eating habits. Each slice of pie, depending on the flavor, normally ranges from between 200 and 400 calories.

If this worries you, some exercises to burn off the calories you put on are:

  • running
  • torso twists
  • v-ups (sit-ups that make the shape of a v)
  • crunches
  • leg lifts
  • straddle reaches
  • side and front planks
