Snow Shoveling Calorie Burn

Well, I didn't make it to the gym today, instead I shoveled for over an hour again--and I am not done yet! This morning it was my driveway, and tonight it was my brother's driveway. He is recuperating from a minor surgery and so lifting is off limits. So, me being the sweet sister I am, shoveled for him. Now that I am home I see the plow buried my mail box and I will need to go out and uncover it. Ugh, I am tired of winter. Suppose I should open up the end of the sidewalk too. The ridge left by the plow is hard packed and about hip high. This is not going to be fun. Just think of all the calories burned though, right? In other news I actually saw 208 on the scale two days in a row--I am a little leery and I am not sure I trust it, but we are definitely headed in the right direction. Hope it will stick and not creep back the other direction.


  1. You should believe if you saw 208 for 2 days! Well done. I'm sure that shovelling snow is as good if not better than a gym workout, might be 207 tomorrow!

  2. Shoveling is great are on your steady way down!!
