Clean Your Way Fit

Feel better about your body and your house all at once. Yes, you now can have a clean house and a fit body. I have built you a workout plan for cleaning your house in a week that will get your upper, lower body and abdominals all in one week. You can burn more than 500 calories in an hour depending on your weight and height.          

According to a new survey by the Discovery Channel, many of us find cleaning our homes ‘mentally therapeutic’ and say it helps us feel in control of our lives. The good news is that a clean house equals a fit person.

Cleaning the house now can be your workout for the day. Make sure to put a lot of effort into your cleaning and get the house polished, dusted, mopped and vacuumed. All these moves workout your arms, legs and abs. You won’t just building muscles but also working on your cardio as you go up and down the stairs, cut the grass in your lawn, and mop the floors. Bending and stretching, for example, when you make the bed, wash windows or do the laundry are good for toning thighs and improving flexibility.

This is approximately how many calories you can burn with just getting your house and lawn done. You may burn more calories than this depending on your height and weight. With a clean house comes a fit body and you can feel good about skipping the gym to get your house in order.
