I find it therapeutic. I spend about 2-3 hours cleaning nearly every day (I'm a SAHM btw). My husband works 12 hour continental shifts so I get all the cleaning done while he's working/sleeping so we have more family time on his days off.
Not because I'm obsessed with a clean house (although it does bug me a little when I see messes and I like everything to be organized) but mostly to keep myself moving. Sitting around makes me feel tired, bored and depressed. I have trouble sitting for any more than 20 mins during the day. Productiveness fights depression, restlessness and boredom! I love having a long to-do list every day. ;) When I'm not cleaning we're doing crafts, playing out in the backyard, going for walks to run errands/to the park, cooking/baking, gardening, etc. always finding stuff to do that doesn't involve my old habit of sitting idly in front of the computer.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
