Clean and Work out Too

I don't love to clean house. For those of you who know me, I know that is a huge shocker, but it is true. I do enjoy a clean (or at least a tidy) house though. I also never seem to be able to find the time (okay make the time) to work out more than once or twice a week.

So, here is what works for me...

When I do get down to the nitty gritty of cleaning, I try to clean as ineffeciently as possible. Not neccesarily taking extra time to clean but making sure that I am taking extra steps to clean. Clean one upstairs bathroom, and then go downstairs to clean a bathroom, then back upstairs for another bathroom. Get the idea. I read somewhere once that house cleaning is actually a good calorie burning workout, so use it to your advantage. Next time you clean, maybe you won't hate it so badly because you'll be killing two birds with one stone. Of course for anyone who doesn't like to clean or work out, this could create bigger issues...

That is what works for me. Head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more Works for Me Wednesday tips.
