I have a 30 minute minimum fitness minute daily goal for myself. I HATE cleaning my apartment (yet I love when it's clean). I'm naturally disorganized. But I like it more now that I consider it exercise minutes I can put in my tracker. I even listen to my running playlist while I clean. It helps!

I purchased a file box that holds 3.5 index cards, 3.5 colored index cards, months of the year and 1-31 cards. I then took and made a list of all the household chores, hair cuts and yearly apts and seperated them by how often they needed to be done and assigned them by color. Yellow for daily chores, pink 1/week, Green 1/ month, orange every 2 weeks and blue 1/year. I wrote on the cards the chore assigned to the color and then placed them in the index box on the days I wanted to do them
All those chores around the house are a drag. I crank the music and dance while I work and when my niece is visiting, she dances alongside. It burns calories and makes household chores a whole lot more fun!
