Doing housework is not "my thing." My profile picture is more aspirational than representative of what I love doing. Likewise with working in the yard. I took a play from the SparkGuy's playbook, and tried making a LITTLE goal. Now I do 20 min. per day of work outside, and 20 min. per day of housework. This works for me!
I have a schedule for what I do each day for inside, and just do a bit of what needs doing outside each day.
I have found that this really helps, and gives me a feeling of accomplishment.
