    I love shoveling snow but I never realized it’s such a great workout!

  3. We bought a fixer upper last summer, no wonder my baby weight came off so fast!
    I wonder how many calories are burned by mopping and vacuuming?

      According to CalorieLab, by mopping, you burn up to 170 calories in one hour and 43 calories in 15 minutes. Vacuuming burns the exact same!

    I love this! Makes me want to fix up the house more!

  5. Great information to have! Really motivates one to move. 🙂

    I wish the same could be said for cooking and baking, but that adds calories – at least for me because I’m always tasting along the way!
