After researching so much about bagless vacs, I recently invested in a good one. I am sorry I did. Even weighing all the pros and cons, it's yucky to clean out the accumulated dust, wash the filter, etc. every third time the house has been vacuumed. I hate it and wish I'd stuck to those with bags. The dust goes up my nose when cleaning this thing out. Yikes!

TV is on and I'm sitting on here comfortably. I know I have move and shake my body more. I just get up and just start moving around otherwise I'll never notice the difference. Don't think about it, stop being lazy, JUST MOVE!!!!
I take a walk, lift weights, do sit ups, squats, jump or run in place...sometimes I just vacuum the whole house
I recently went to Sam's Club and bought frozen vegetables; chicken; cereals and breads in bulk of course. I vacuum sealed my breads in 2 or 3 bagels; 2 or 3 sandwich thins; frozen broccoli in 1 cup or 2 cup portions; precooked baby shrimp in 1 cup packages; and chicken pieces 4 per pack.
Saves money , saves time and will last longer if vacuum sealed. 128
The SparkCoach video today talked about how to turn house work into exercise and gave a couple of good tips. Here are two that I use.
Unloading and loading the dishwater can be up to twenty squats for me - squat slowly down as you load and rise slowly to get another dish.. Lunge while vacuuming. Go down one side of room lunging on one leg as you move the vacuum. Keep good form! Turn around and lunge with other leg..
