Progress report: Moving day is here!

Progress reportProgress report

Cleaning sucks.  But cleaning sucks up calories too.  




I hate cleaning, and I have spent most of my time the past two days cleaning packing up my apartment to move out.  How could you ever get someone to clean your apartment, house,  or business?  No amount of money is worth this torture.    It is incredible how much you can acquire over a 2-year span.  I moved here with a mid-size sedan and pickup loaded. I am leaving with a 16-foot truck loaded to the maximum.   


Not all is a woe is me.  By cleaning for two days, I have spent about 4-6 hours per day cleaning and packing a stuck.  I went to bed each night tired and sore.  It is hard work.  So how many calories do you burn per day cleaning a house?  You burn 150-170 calories per day.  The means you would burn 900 calories in 6 hours.  That is a whopping total.  

I still weight about 210 pounds.  I will restart my track to health when I get to Georgia.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving up.  I just realize that I am not going to be able to exercise will get out of the vehicle after this 3-day drive.  

The bottom line:  Cleaning can burn a lot of calories, so clean away.
