    I don't like traditional exercise, but rarely ever sit down. I am working in my garden or cutting grass, painting etc. How can I figure out how many calories I am burning. Doing the things I do regularly? - by 1995DODGE

  • One of the teams I joined made it a goal to park further away from your destination. I do that when I go to work. Used to park in the closest spot, because I got there early enough and had to leave quickly. Now, I still get there early, but I park the furthest. It's only about 25-30 feet further, but it adds up, especially if I have to run to the bank or post office during the day. - by _BACK2BASICS_
