Is This For Real?

So according to CalorieCount.about.com

You Burn:
mowing the lawn for one hour- 364cal
weeding the garden for one hour-298cal

I guess I'll be doing this today after work instead of wogging. We haven't touched our yard in 2weeks and our flower beds in a month. Man Oregon, is so tropical. Now I really understand the phrase "growing like weeds".

Yeah, I don't know about these numbers? Tiff, correct me if I am wrong. According to my Bodybugg, I only burn about 350 calories after one hour of plyometrics in which I am breathless, so depending on how tall your grass is, maybe? But it seems a little off to me. I'm a little skeptical. Tiff?

Seems off to me.

See you at T-hill around 5.

dude. fitwatch.com just told me 380 mowing the lawn for one hour?

Yippee! I read this right after weeding for an hour-so I'm choosing to believe it.

who knows where that number comes from...i wonder if they are calculating a heavier man because then yes they may actually burn that many calories, but i highly doubt a person burns that many calories in an hour. with the workouts i do, in about an hour i burn 250 calories, at most 350. i think those may be off a little/a lot.
