Chore Exercise or Exercise is a Chore!

24 Apr

Ok so how many of you love doing chores.  How many of you love getting stuff done around the house.  I read this blog post from The Token Fat Girl  Click Here and it just reminded me of how many chores I used to do outside.  I

 

think when you are young you don’t think about chores being good for you because you are burning calories.  But a lot of chores that we do burn a lot of calories.  HAHA how many of you have worked up a sweat when you vacumm your house 🙂  Or how many of you put on music while you are cleaning and that makes you dance more.  Which in turn makes you move and burn calories more.  Gotta love that, when I saw celebrity Kristi Alley started dancing to lose weight I realized how much more I move when I am cleaning if I have music going.  I love listening to music anyway while I am cleaning, but just one more reason to listen some upbeat tunes!  The more we move in every day life the more weight you will lose or keep off.  If it is a life style change than the more we change our regular lifestyle to make us move more regularly.  I went hiking with my kids the other day as a family outing.  We have been getting in the habit of hanging out watching TV and I really want to do more of these types of activities with my family we hiked up one of the many hills or mountains in utah and got to see the city!!  So beautiful!  Go out and spend time with your loved ones! 🙂

    Good for you! Taking some initiative and bringing the family closer together. They will remember those outings when they get older, but I bet those nights spent in front of the tv will be all blurred together. 😀
    When I was in college I had to take a few dance classes and I will tell you they were an excellent workout! Half of the time you are so focussed on getting the moves down that you don’t even realize how hard you are working. I dance around all the time at home. I even encorporate lunges into my vacuuming on occasion. Anytime is a good time to exercise. 😀
