Housework today, burning calories.

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Housework. Cleaning, climbing, stooping, reaching. I think I'll burn like a thousand calories today doing it. But, it is sooooo hot here in Florida (I sure wish we would break that 90+ degree record soon). I've got to get that walk in before it gets too humid this morning.

Happy Wednesday!

    Always got my tunes going. Didn't even think to track housework but you got a point there.

Thanks for the comments.

    I'm gonna have to agree with Kirsty! Scotland is cold! I don't even bother checking the temperature... it's just known as COLD! Lol!
You sound like you've been burning the calories big time so make sure you track it on SPARK! Get credit for your hard work!! Do you listen to music as you work?! I know it sounds like hard work but also fun work if you've got the tunes pumping!

    I read my blog again a week later. I started sweating just reading it emoticon.

This week we're at a more comfortable high of 82 and it is breezy.

    You shouldmove to CT. We are just starting our winter seasonal cold up here, and your Florida heat sounds so good to me.

    I agree, even when the wind blows it's hot air. I think the wind is trying to catch a breeze. But we press on. Clean and burn those calories while you doing it!

    Paula, if you have a HRM you should wear it while your cleaning just to see how much calories you actually burn. That would interesting.

    Happy Wednesday and you are right it is HOTT emoticon, however I would rather the heat than the cool anyday. I am in Winter Haven and as I was driving to work this morning threw all of the dew-I knew it was going to be another hot one......
I need to clean too!
Have a blessed day

Welcome to Paula's Page

Hi, I'm Paula, a native Floridian, bringing greetings from nearby Orlando. My husband and I are empty nesters, my two children are grown. I joined SP for motivation but got so much more. Every time I visit I learn something new. Very educational site.

I used to be a big internet shopper, my user name reflects this. Then it was Facebook but after chatting and blogging, there's only games left. Now, I wake up thinking of SparkPeople, and love it because there is so much to learn and do here. Plus I think of SP as my personal trainer.

Thanks for visiting my page and best wishes on your road to healthy living.
