Only if it's deep cleaning, cleaning the house top to bottom. Tidying up and day to day stuff I don't.

No, but I am beginning to waver today as I have moved the couch, cleaned the blinds, taken down and washed the curtains, cleaned the baseboards, etc., and still going strong with my Independence Day cleaning - freeing the house of dust bunnies and clutter.

I still think I won't count it, though. It is activity, and I have peppy music. I'm actually enjoying doing it, also.

Not unless I do something much more strenuous than usual like cleaning the entire garage, but I do burn calories doing some of it. I can work up a sweat with certain tasks.

I count house cleaning as an exercise because it takes a lot of effort for me to do my house work. I have difficulty staying on my feet for longer than a few minutes due to a bad back, etc. (Recovering from back surgery still) So, just the movement of walking, standing, etc. are calorie burners for me. I am able to shop with a cart for 1 hour now...that is a big improvement for me, so I count grocery shopping as an exercise in walking, too. That's an improvement over using the motorized cart like I did prior to surgery and right after. Thank you, God that I am improving slowly.

Yes, when I make a point to move more during housework. Leg lifts, squats, stretches, etc. are done while I fold clothes or stand at the sink washing dishes. Multi-tasking at its finest.

Sometimes. When I have been doing laundry all day and lugging baskets of clothes up and down the basement steps, along w/ cleaning up after 3 kids constantly through out the day, I do, but only count it for 15-20 mins at the most.

added to Favorites.. Housework sure beats sitting on your can. Add a few squats and stretches while sweeping. Do a few curls with that full laundry basket. Add a few stairstep inclined pushups before you walk up a flight to kick the teens out of bed.
