Does Cleaning My Room Count As A Workout?

Since I have a whole week off before I start classes at my local community college, I decided to be productive and clean my room.

I will be honest, finals week was not kind to my bedroom, and I could not find any clothes to wear.

I won’t lie, I was dripping with sweat as I vacuumed and moved my bed and my sister’s bed around to clean up!

I realize regular people clean up everyday, but man this was a workout!

Feel free to judge, but I chipped my gel color French manicure off in the process. Sad stuff.

But on the bright side, I have bag full of clothes to donate, and I can see my bright orange carpet again!

After my cleaning workout, I geared up for bike ride #2! I have biked two days in a row! I am clearly obsessed.

I realize that I have a lot of weight to lose, but I don’t have a specific number in mind. I don’t expect to drop down to XXX and suddenly I will be happy with everything in my life. I am just happy with adding physical activity back into my life.


While I biked my sister ran. Yes, she ran faster than I biked. But I am determined to get back into shape!


My sister is rocking a SuperSana shirt!


I realize that I am a bit too big for my bike, but I have had it since I was 10 years old!!


 Me giving my bike a pep talk– Come on bike! We can do this, I don’t care how old and rusty you are!

Do you consider cleaning up to be a workout? Do you still ride/have your first bike?

    I’m jealous that you went riding! I need to. Either that or I’m just really hot and need some air on my face. xo

    I didn’t even bring a car to college and basically just biked everywhere (luckily a lot of things were in biking distance).
    However, I did break my arm flipping over my hand wheels when I first learned to ride back in grade school :P

    It totally counts as a workout! I just bought a bike 2 weeks ago! My first since I was 15 and my brother broke it. It’s a Giant XS Sedona Hybrid that is mint green. All summer-y. Have a great weekend!
