Thank Heaven for Housework!


Thursday, March 07, 2013

emoticon Yeah, I know...It's not my favorite thing to do, either. There's a big "but" coming--BUT, it sure can eat up some calories! I don't count the little 10 minute dusting jobs, just the big blocks of time that I set aside for the big stuff. This morning, it was mopping and cleaning out my chickens' "command module" (where they sleep at night and lay eggs during the day. The mopping was the start of my spring cleaning in the house.

To track my calories burned by the mopping, I used a site that factors in your weight
www.healthstatus.com/cgi
-bin/calc/calculator.cgi
Mopping and chicken chores torched 372 calories by their calculations. I had to move furniture, drag a heavy bucket around, and lift some boxes and hampers to get it done, so I'm satisfied I've gotten my workout for the morning!
