When I'm gardening, I only track it when I'm doing the heavy stuff; digging, hoeing, pulling weeds, etc. If I'm just spraying things or picking vegetables, it's just bonus movement, and I don't count it as exercise.
Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
I work in my garden for hours some days weeding and harvesting. I'm concerned the fitness tracker calculates too many calories burned for these chores.What I do doesn't get my heart rate up but I do feel it in my muscles. Should I track less time in the garden or is this correct?
