What is it about spring that warrants a good deep cleaning of the house? This weekend I have major plans to get down and dirty and I'm not taking it on alone, my husband will be right there with me.
Cleaning, while not the most fun activity in the world, is necessary. My husband and I usually have our morning coffee and a nice breakfast and then we take on the dirt, as a team. Before we know it, we've each burned a couple hundred calories.
|Chore||Time||Her Calories Burned||His Calories Burned|
|Cleaning Windows||one hour||195||255|
|Making the Bed||5 minutes||15||19|
|Sweeping Floors||30 minutes||101||133|
|Scrubbing the Bathroom||30 minutes||118||154|
|Moving Furniture||15 minutes||108||142|

That's a lot of calories burned even if you split up the tasks. When you're done, you'll have a clean house, you'll feel great and you'll have spent the day with your husband getting something done.
