Snow day!!

Monday, January 10, 2011

So most people would probably think I am silly by writing about snow but where I live, it's a very rare thing for us to get 8 inches!!

I decided to put my heart rate monitor on while hubby, both the brats (dogs) and I went outside to play in the snow. We built a snow man, ran around and had a snowball fight within an hour and a half period. After my feet went numb and the brats were soaked from galloping in the pure white bliss we decided to go in. As I took the monitor off I figured, eh, I probably burned around 200-300 calories. Boy was I wrong! In that time frame I burned a whopping 800 calories! How great is that!?
Pretty much effortless and I had so much fun! It really goes to show that when we are just having fun we are also burning! I still plan to do some strength training with ChaLEAN tonight but my cardio is done for the day. How exciting!
