My husband naively said this morning, that housework doesn’t count as exercise. Instead of giving him the “Chuck Norris Round house Kick to the Head” that he deserved, I whipped out my iPhone to prove him wrong.
When I couldn’t get the Nike + iPod app to work, I downloaded Pedometer (Luminant Software, $0.99) and calibrated it.
I put in my new V-Moda Faze headset and grabbed the vacuum.
In an hour and a half of doing my regular vacuuming, I had 7,130 steps. That equals 3.28 miles and I burned 301 calories.
The V-Moda Faze worked great to drown out the vacuum and Yo Gabba Gabba. Best fitting in-ear headset I have ever used. It only fell out twice while doing the housework – that’s 100 times less that the Apple earbuds. I only wish it had volume control.
So, with my iPhone I was able to prove my husband wrong. Oh, and by the way, Honey. You couldn’t have done that with your Blackberry!
