Did You Know...

Did you know that one hour of vigorous house cleaning will burn 145 calories? YES 1 hour! Did you know that ten minutes of doing Jumping Jax will burn 108 calories? Yep, amazing isn't it? So if I could, I would do thirty minutes of Jumping Jax at a grand total of 324 or better yet do sixty minutes at a grand total of 648 burned calories... that's right - I said "If I could". I can barely get ten minutes in and that ONLY if my bladder is EMPTY! Sheesh!!! - old lady syndrome :O{
So beyond doing the exercising and house cleaning I have set up on my computer a spreadsheet- it gives a place for my meals, snacks, etc and how much and what I eat and the calories for each and then it adds them up for me daily. The spreadsheet is for a month at a time. It also has a column for the exercising I do each day and how many calories were burned at days end. No not normal day's calories but the ones burned with planned exercise. I've found that when I know exactly what I'm putting in my mouth and how many calories it has- its easier for me to watch what I eat... so here's to loosing some of this flubber and feeling good on top of that! Yippeee...
Yes, I realize its going to take a long time for me to do this - its not an overnight remedy (darn) and that I'm going to have to make myself work out, even when I don't want to, in order to be successful - but I have a goal and a time-line for that goal- so I'm hoping I don't get derailed.
Ok - drum roll... stay tuned for the earlier mentioned contest, it will appear next week AFTER the ANWA Writing Conference I'm leaving for tomorrow...
