Shoveling show is the most timely example since I'm in the Midwest, but other house chores can also be used for great exercise - washing your car, mowing your lawn, sweeping, heavy housecleaning and more. I often do things the old-fashioned way, just to burn more calories. That's why TODAY, for the 4th time this year, I shoveled snow with a snow shovel while several of my neighbors were using snow blowers.
