Snaffle. It just sounds funny! I'm going to snaffle those biscuits before everyone eats them.
Yeah, I need sleep.
So anyway, today I'm wondering about exercise v. activity. Where exactly is the line drawn between proper cardio exercise and just day to day activity?
Today was my bin day at work (all the permanent staff take turns emptying the bins for the whole company) and I don't know whether to add it to my tracker or not. It involved going up and down stairs 4 times, and I made sure I jogged up instead of just walking every time. It took me around 15 minutes to get all the rubbish and recycling downstairs, and I was breathing a little heavier by the end of it. But not a lot heavier, and it's not like I worked up a sweat carrying bin bags around.
So do I track it? Or call it activity and just feel smug about the few calories I burned while everyone else was sitting at their desk? What would I even track it as? Somehow I can't see 'emptying bins' being an option in the tracker. But then you never know...
