I burned HOW many calories?

So, on the fitday site, you can choose the activities that you do during the day, and it tells you how many calories that particular activity burns.

I went back to yesterday's entry, and selected all of the household activities that I did, just to see what happened.

When I just had the swimming on the list (6 minutes each of the four strokes), I had burned 190 calories.

After adding all of the laundry, the cooking, the grocery shopping, the dish washing (yes, I washed by hand yesterday for some reason), the stair climbing, and the making my bed, I had brought that total up to 350 calories burned.


Yes, making my bed only burned 2 calories...
