I squeeze in extra cardio while I clean my house. I put my headphones on and blast a workout mix, and get really into it. I dance while I clean, and take little breaks for jumping jacks, squats, crunches, etc. It's fun, burns a ton of calories, and gets my house sparkling! I replace one gym session per week with my Dance/Clean.
I wear my heart rate monitor so I can track the calories, and I burn an average of 750 calories during a 90 minute cleaning session, as opposed to 350 during a regular cleaning session. I'll take it!
