Cleaning uses a lot of calories

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

I got 2.5 miles in today by spring/fall cleaning my Dad's house. Needless to say I didn't get done but I put a big dent in it. According to our fitness tracker heavy house cleaning uses a lot of calories. Plus when I finally get in the zone I don't won't to stop and eat because I know if I stop it is hard to get me started again. The back of my legs hurt and my back is starting to too. I probably did 5 hours of cleaning for him. I like to get exercise and accomplish cleaning too. I didn't get much done yesterday I guess I was gearing up for today.

I don't know how many times I got up and down off a step ladder or carried my Kirby to a new location, they are heavy.

    I've always been surprised by how much housework burns when I check calorie calculators! Good job!
