Studies have shown when people do normal everyday things, they can and will lose more weight if they think of the calories being burned. In the study, they had people doing things such as parking in the back of a parking lot and doing everyday around the house cleaning.
They counted it as exercise and the people that counted everything they did, on average, lost MORE weight than those that only counted their cardio and strength training. It's all in the POWER OF THE MIND!!!
