Been there done that, I guess I would use the heavy cleaning calorie count the motion and action is similar to mopping with a lot more resistance. Hope that helps!

I might also consider a heartrate monitor as I have heard that fitbit doesn't record everything and can be inaccurate.

I agree with heavy housecleaning...
however for bett accuracy with calories and steps
try fitbit
I use mine for everything.....
I check calories and steps before I start an activity then check again after
It is fabulous and keeping me honest about what I actually do!!!

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!

I use heavy housecleaning for that sort of stuff. I have decided, for my self, that I have to raise my heart rate before I will use it for cardio. I live in WI, so cleaning a pool sounds good, but not here!!! LOL

Blessings are coming your way!!

Maybe you can track those minutes under heavy or housecleaning.

I was wondering if cleaning a pool would count as a cardio workout? You need to skim the top brush down the sides (and floor sometimes) vacuum the bottom and skim again to get the last pieces on the top. If so how would i calculate that for fitness?
