So, I got a flat tire on the way home from work yesterday. At the time, changing the tire wasn't very fun. It was windy and actually pretty warm. Boy did it pay off when I found out how many calories I burned!

So, I got a flat tire on the way home from work Monday.  At the time, changing the tire wasn't very fun.  It was windy and actually pretty warm.  Boy did it pay off when I found out how many calories I burned!

Since January I've been wearing a device called the Bodybugg.  It counts how many calories I burn 24/7.  So I uploaded my calorie burn from Monday and was shocked.  It took me about an hour to change my tire(I know .. don't laugh, I'm not very good at changing tires).  I burned 367 calories according to my Bodybugg.

Hey, maybe I should get a flat tire more often!

A quick update on my weight goal.  I have now lost 26 pounds!  I am 4 pounds away from my ultimate goal!
