What about counting that as gardening? It seems like about the same kind of calorie burn as heavy gardening.

I would agree that it's part of your daily activity since you are doing it every day and shouldn't typically be added to your calorie burned amount as exercise. Also, I doubt that there are studies done for calories burned for that activity.

Agree that it's probably more of your daily activity at this point, but if you wanted a similar calorie burn estimate, I'd just use "heavy cleaning."

If it's an activity you do everyday, it's not really exercise, more it's a part of your lifestyle. So instead of "sedentary" you'd set it to "moderately active" or "active."

Hello.

Can you please add 'Mucking out stalls' to the list of fitness activities? I have two donkeys and muck twice a day. I saw on another website that it was calculated at 92 calories per stall. It's harder than raking, but not quite as hard as shoveling snow, I think.

Thanks.
