Brun While You Clean

Did you know that you doing house and yard work can help you burn calories and lose weight? Just to give you idea of how much you can burn, here is a list of how many calories a 150 lb person would burn doing these activities for 30 minutes. If you weigh more than 150 lbs then you would burn more calories and less calories if you weigh under 150 lbs. Now, there's a reason to put a smile on your face while cleaning!

Weeding = 150 calories
Gardening (moderate) = 135 calories
Washing the car by hand = 112 calories
Ironing = 75 calories
Mopping = 128 calories
Scrubbing the floor = 210 calories
Window cleaning = 112 calories
