So the other week I put a post up about how
hoovering is definitely cardio, and I’ve had a
few people that mentioned to me about how
they lack in time to get exercise in because
they’re running around doing the housework
But, one thing I did want to say was anything
that’s elevating your heart rate is giving you a
form of workout to a degree.
I think people put barriers up by thinking they
have to go out for a run, or they have to go out f
or a brisk walk, or they have to go to the gym in
order to do some form of activity.
But anything that elevates your heart rate is going
to burning more calories than it would be if you sa
t on the sofa….
So don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re really,
really busy and you’re finding it hectic.
If you’re literally scrubbing the floor to a degree and
your heart rate is elevated (yes i’ve tried that too haha),
you are going to burning more calories.
If you do all of that and you’re still not losing weight, it
probably means you need to adapt the calories slightly
and make sure they’re correct as well.
So don’t always think that it has to be about doing loads
of workouts. Of course, ideal world, yes you’d get a good
high intensity workout.
However, if you can’t, that’s totally cool.
I have to say, I was absolutely inactive when I hoovered the
house last week and was bouncing with sweat, so I definitely
believe it’s a good workout, typically, if it’s not something you
do very often.
Note to self, will start hoovering on a regular basis myself.
Gotta shoot to hoover (seriously)
