I just shoveled snow for a good hour and a half and mind you I fell a few times on the ice. Should I count this as some of my workout?

Yah saw that GA. Got a bit unusual for you all I live in Massachusetts so yah New England snow is common lol so naturally I use shoveling as a calorie burn lol

I've burned over 1000 calories shoveling snow (according to my heartrate monitor). I'd definitely track it. It's a great workout! :)
