Some people hate to clean… me on the other hand.. I LOVE IT! I can’t stand coming home to a dirty house; therefore I am always cleaning! I found this great calorie breakdown for all of those “clean freaks!” Most clean freaks ALSO love to workout; so here is the break down for all the busy bodies out there……
|Activity:||Calories burned (per 30 minutes)*:|
|Mopping the floor||153|
|Mowing the lawn (push mower)||148|
|Raking the lawn||135|
|Washing the car||153|
|Weeding the yard||153|
*Based on a 150 lb. person.(credit)
If you have a bodybugg then you know that cleaning is a huge workout. However, for those who don’t, this is a great chart to gauge how many extra calories you can burn while doing household chores.
Maybe next time you clean your house you will approach it with less dread and more enthusiasm!
