200 Calorie Surprise!

Monday, February 18, 2013

It's Family Day here and the only plans we have are for dinner with my mom and dad. We can't afford much else, so I thought I'd start my day early with some rearranging of some furniture and some serious cleaning - to make my home just that much nicer for my family.

My first half hour produced fantastic results and just to give my daily Spark Points an early jump start, I "tracked" it as cardio activity. I was super surprised to see that what I've done already counts at about a 200 Calorie burn! If getting my home nice and shiny isn't enough motivation to keep going, the serious Calorie burn might be! I'm off to see what else I can do today! Ask not what your home and body can do for you, but what you can do for your home and body! LOL Thanks, JFK! ;) At least I *think* that's what he said! ;-D

    Burning calories is what it's all about no matter how we accomplish it.
    Have a wonderful Family Day dinner and enjoy !!!! Remember it's the time we spend with family that is more precious than $$$. emoticon

    Love the play on words. I'm doing spring cleaning and am counting it. I figure going up and down the stairs and step stool and all the arm movement polishing has to be worth something.
