How many calories do you burn with yard work?

When it comes to losing, gaining or maintaining your weight, the key is to MOVE more. So remember that every active thing you do counts, even yard work!
 Now that spring is here and it's finally reached 70 degrees here in western Washington (AMEN) it's time to get outside! since my husband and I just bought a new home there is much to do in the way of yard work! So instead of get overwhelmed I decided to take a fun fitness approach! Not only will my daughter be much happier spending her days outside in the sun but I will get my body moving and soak up some Vitamin D at the same time!! Here is a website to help you calculate how many calories you burn while outside working on the yard.

  1. I haven't ventured out to work in the yard, as we just moved from Idaho to North Carolina and it's HOT here! I keep hearing that the temps will be great in September, so that's when I'll get my butt out there and put the kids to work, too....I actually can't wait. There is weeding and planting to be done and we can grow stuff all year 'round here, unlike Idaho :)
    Happy Gardening!
