Exercise vs. Housework?

I have spent the last 3 days doing housework non-stop. Is that exercise? I think it is, how does everyone else feel?

Yes, housework is definitely good exercise. I do some housework too now that I am retired. My blood sugar will drop while I am doing it.

Well I had my exercise today as I went shopping for an Air Compressor and the BG moved somewhat. I figured that I can roll back the ratio when bolusing after my exercise. It says a lot what I do in my day.

I agree with Fiesta I think house work is definitely an exercise. It's not only hard work but it takes a lot of planning to keep me from running in circles. I have reach the age that it's hard for me to stay focused on one task. If I'm not careful I'll be working all day and not accomplish one thing. I'm the same way with yard work. I'll get out the lawnmower and noticed the tire needs a little air, start looking for the air gauge, find a wrench that I had lost a week ago, return it to the toolbox and notice a tape measure I was looking for to measure the width of my Jon boat, head to the Jon boat and noticed a broken tip on a fishing rod, remember the replacement tip is in the top drawer in the kitchen, past the refrigerator and open a diet drink, look in a kitchen cabinet for a glass, notice a serving plate that I wanted for barbecue chicken, remember I'm needed charcoal to cooked chicken, etc. etc. by the end of the day I've accomplished nothing except a good workout...

Hi Bugg,

I am 67 and I have problems keeping focused, too. You probably accomplished more than what you think you did.

If not, you got a great workout. That is the main thing. I do one room at a time and I do not look for anything that is not going to accomplish cleaning that room. At least, sometimes.

Hahaha.. that's a great joke. I sure wish Satan hadn't created all those unhealthy products, or else I would have been doing just fine.

Being active throughout the day like walking/moving whenever possible as opposed to sitting too much helps me more than vigorous exercising. Whenever I do exercising/badminton I make it a point to have a snack before or in-between.
Or else i will have a spike

I think our body is structured to be active.If we are not we face the consequences

You are totally correct. We are meant to be active. People who are very active live a longer life.
