OMG! Vacuuming!

I knew I did it pretty vigorously, I get really hot, break quite a sweat and get achey back and core, but... 415kcals for 49 minutes of it!

I decided to wear my HRM and find out just how much I get out of vacuuming and was amazed to see 415kcals after pretty much 50 minutes of scrubbing at the cat-hair encrusted carpets. And that was after a 708kcal cardio gym session earlier today. Not bad really.

Late getting up after very early to bed meant 12 hours sleep(!) and no morning snack today...

B - toasted onion bagel with Marmite and a poached egg
S - 1 scoop chocolate in semi-skimmed milk
L - toasted ham, stilton and tomato sandwich on wholemeal granary bread
S - an apple
S - toasted slice of banana, walnut and raisin malt loaf
D - roast chicken, potatoes, carrots and broccoli with wine
S - little bit of dark chocolate

Exercise - 71 minutes cardio plus core, and 50 minutes hardcore vacuuming
