Absolutely! It might be the only cardio I end up with this week, so I am going to count it!

Last year I wore my heart rate monitor a couple of times to see how many calories I burned while shoveling. I was pleased with the results, which I now have forgotten, so this topic has made me want to try it again.

What I do remember is deciding - Oh, I just need to burn a few more to make it to "X hundred." and nearly did the sidewalks down the whole street. It became its own monster! Just another hundred, just ANOTHER hundred. It was pretty funny by the time I finished, and I was exhausted!

That is the only good reason I can find for living with all this snow, it is great cardio!!!

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

It's there under cardio! I just did 30 minutes and thought I'd take a peak and it's there. :) It's coming down like crazy. Wish whoever is shaking the snowglobe would just put it down and let it settle. :)

Have a great fluffy snowy white day. Drive safe everyone!
