Today has been an interesting day despite the weather. We had a big snow storm last night resulting in some major snowfall. The stuff was light and fluffy so wasn’t bad to clean up this morning. I shoveled our double driveway and then went and did our neighbors double driveway across the street who is unable to do his because of health problems. It felt GREAT to get out there and do some exercise in the gorgeous, sunny morning!
Then my husband and I went out for lunch and when I got home, I went on to my elliptical for an hour and rocked it out! LOL It was fantastic! I was so pumped after that workout I felt like I could keep going for hours but my legs and back wouldn’t let me.
My total workout was:
Snow Shoveling: 90mins Cals burned: 789
Elliptical: 64mins Cals burned: 464
Total Cals burned today: 1253
I’m hoping the scale will reflect the exercise at some point in the next few days so I know all this effort is paying off.
Otherwise, I’m managing to keep my calorie intake below my daily budget allowed before exercise - for the most part.
