Cleaning Burns Calories

This morning was the usual Tuesday for me.
Work with my usual Tuesday morning clients.
My own cardio and lifting.
Then I cleaned my house for about two and a half hours. We're talking deep cleaning...scrubbing floors/mopping/bleaching...Needless to say after all the cleaning I felt like I had just gone through a second workout. Good thing I wear my workout clothes all day, right?
I decided to do some post cleaning research and I calculated that I burned around 600 calories from my cleaning. I felt good about it. It was a great reminder to me that leading an active lifestyle doesn't have to mean working out 10 hours a day. By being an active person you can burn calories just the same. Sometimes busy mom's don't have time to clean the house and make it to the gym. If this is the case all you need to do is get moving and burn some calories while you're cleaning.

So, put on some of your favorite loud tunes...if you are like me that is the only way to clean...and sing your little heart out while you clean/dance your way around the kitchen. Put some elbow grease into it and you'll work up a sweat.

Do you feel like cleaning is a workout for you? I always do, but I kinda love it. I am a little bit of a clean freak. If you feel like you need to burn of some extra calories for the day pick up your cleaning supplies and get going!

This should motivate me to clean but it doesn't. I try to pace myself so I did all of my bathrooms today.
