LOSING WEIGHT WHILE GARDENING!
I get the Johns Hopkins Health Alerts. This morning I got the email that I get every week or so. It said this:
"Light gardening and yard work can be surprisingly taxing: Performed at a moderate pace, a 154-lb person can burn 330 calories per hour digging up weeds and raking."
I am really happy about that because I'm also trying to lose weight! Unfortunately, there's about 2 feet of snow on the ground covered by about 1/2 inch of ice...I guess I won't be losing any weight THAT way for awhile!
Anyway, I thought you'd like to know gardening can help you lose weight!
