Ok...sometimes when your shoveling away...the snow can stick to your shovel...well...I have found a little pam sprayed on the snow shovel....does help with the snow sticking to it! I highly recommend it!
Shoveling show is the most timely example since I'm in the Midwest, but other house chores can also be used for great exercise - washing your car, mowing your lawn, sweeping, heavy housecleaning and more. I often do things the old-fashioned way, just to burn more calories. That's why TODAY, for the 4th time this year, I shoveled snow with a snow shovel while several of my neighbors were using snow blowers.
Just because i have a snow blower does not mean I always have to use it. Especially when dealing with the light and fluffy white stuff, and when time allows, I grab the snow shovel instead and leave the snow blower in the garage. It is good exercise, I burn more calories and burn less gas (which is important these days). Saved 4 bucks yesterday and burned over 2,000 calories!
