Easy Ways to Burn 100 Calories

I found this article and here are some easy and fun ways to burn some calories without going to the gym. (According to the article this is for someone weighing 155 pounds.)
  1. Bowling - 100 calories in a half hour.
  2. Walking Your Dog - Walking at 4 miles per hour will burn 100 calories in about 18 minutes.
  3. Go Swimming -  14 minutes of normal swimming will burn off 100 calories.
  4. Jump Rope - Eight minutes of jumping rope can burn 100 calories.
  5. Cook a Meal - Cooking for 33 minutes will burn off 100 calories. (I'm not so sure about this one...)
  6. Rake the Leaves - (this one is not fun for me) 21 minutes of raking the leaves will burn 100 calories.
  7. Dance - (I LOVE to dance!!) 15 minutes of dancing will burn 100 calories.
  8. Wash the Car - Washing your car or cleaning the windows around the house will cut 100 calories in 18 minutes.
  9. Use the Stairs - Fourteen minutes on a step stair machine will burn 100 calories, but the stairs in your house, apartment or office building will work just as well.
