10 minutes does what?

March 21, 2011 at 11:41 am (fitness) ()

This is  from  the  eating  well  website — and I  though I  needed to  post  this  here as a  reminder  to  me.  I’m getting  lots of exercise  now,  but there  will be  a  time in  the  future  when  I  need  to  see  this:

Calories Burned in 10 Minutes:
Indoor Activities:
• 28: Stretching or yoga
• 28: Household chores, light
• 34: Weight lifting, moderate
• 45: Household chores, moderate
• 59: Playing with kids
• 90: Sit-ups, vigorous
• 102: Stair machine/Treadmill

Feeling really motivated? If you have more time on the weekends or your day off, get outside and embrace winter and all the fun activities it has to offer. (I for one can’t wait to go snowboarding… wait, does that count as exercise? Yes!)

Outdoor Activities:
• 28: Playing catch
• 57: Walking, very brisk pace
• 62: Ice skating
• 66: Shoveling snow
• 66: Snowboarding
• 68: Downhill skiing, moderate effort
• 88: Snowshoeing
• 91: Cross-country skiing, light/moderate

the whole article is here.

    Gardening seems to come somewhere between walking and snow shoveling to me. Unless you’re pulling up trees ….
