There are some good points here, many of them conflicting.
Spark already includes an allowance for daily chores, so to track them as exercise would be to double count.
But some chores have all the characteristics of cardio (repeated rhythic movements over an extended period), and involve sufficient effort to be above and beyond a standard allowance for normal activities. Yard work, shovelling snow, and heavy scrubbing may well fall in that category.
However, Spark's tracker assumes constant activity. The task may well have taken you 105 minutes, but after you got out and put away the cleaning material, changed position to access a different part of the oven, waited for the cleaner to be absorbed into the accumulated crud, etc, 'active' scrubbing may only have been 30-40 minutes. I'd recommend being conservative in your estimate of the active component of the task.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
