Working vs. Working Out!

So... I have not been to the gym in two days which is NOTHING compared to my old routine which was like NEVER go to the gym. I know I need to be going at least 4-5 times a week but does working hard count as working out? I have been working all day in my bathroom and cleaning the house and I know this is burning calories because I am sweating. Should I feel bad that I have been working hard all day and I am tired and sweaty and the thought of getting more tired and sweaty sounds NOT fun? OR am I making excuses? My husband isn't home yet and I have to start making dinner in about 20 minutes. EXCUSE? SOOO I did some research on the amount of calories burned doing all the things I did today. FIND IT HERE
Shopping - 156 calories Cleaned for 2 hours hard effort (sweating it up with no breaks!) - 400 calories Painting - 306 calories Watering Flowers - 30 calories That means I have burned around 1,000 calories working on my house and sweating - should I feel good about this? I know that when I did Weight Watchers these counted as activity points so I have to say if I am burning calories and consuming very few calories then I am doing ok. DON'T FREAK OUT OVER MISSING A FEW DAYS AT THE GYM! My new means of tracking my progress is with the TAPE MEASURE! This is my first time doing this so I am sure I would have had some awesome numbers compared to January BUT thats ok.
CHEST - 46 BUST- 49 WAIST- 44 ABDOMEN- 44 HIPS- 52 BUTTOCKS- 53 THIGHS- 29 KNEE- 18 CALF- 19 ANKLE- 10 UPPER ARM- 18 FOREARM- 11 1/2
