Is extra activity exercise, or not?

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I've been decorating the bathroom and am unsure as to whether to count the additional movement as exercise. It's movement I wouldn't have done anyway and the extra time spent doing this is making it harder to get out for a walk and stuff.

Or by counting this am i giving myself an excuse not to go for a walk?

    Thanks Guys

I'm stripping the paint of the lovely wooden window frame, painting the walls and fitting a new floor

All good fun although I think I may have bitten off more than I want to chew!

    I thin kit depends on how strenous it is. If it's things like just hanging a few pictures or the like I wouldn't count it. If you were changing out faucets, getting under cabinets, laying floors, etc. I would.

    I understand that moving is exercise, not matter how or what you do to move. So hang in there and keep moving.
