Aerobic Snow Workout

No need to hike yesterday - snow fell overnight and since his Lordship goes to work, the task of snow removal falls on me.  We have a steep driveway, so it is a tricky job.  Yesterday, I wore hiking spikes on my shoes just to navigate the icy base under the snow.  Our driveway is so steep that without the spikes, one just slides all the way down.  According to Spark People, a person of my weight shoveling for 40 minutes burned 223 calories. This is of course, without the aid of a snow blower. So lets here it for household chores that also count as exercise!!!

A lot of snow to remove


  1. Wow, that's some great exercise. I can't seem to activate email notifications for the blog. :(

  2. The comments don't interpret the little faces properly :(
