|Not a mess--a calorie burning |
Gift shopping: 95 cals
Standing in line: 47
Food shopping (pushing a cart): 13
Baking cookies: 95
Changing beds for guests: 40
Housecleaning: 191 (wow, we have a winner, wait, it's housecleaning, never mind)
Caroling: 140 in an hour, singing while standing
204 walking between houses at 2 mph
A nice big piece of pie is what...250-400 calories? That's a lot of bed changing.
Still--you may also be sightseeing with guests, going up and down stairs more, shoveling walks, making snowmen with all the kids, and otherwise getting off your routine--every little bit helps.
