I do the timer thing when I’m desperate, and it really works. For an added plus, put on some music, I particularly like old, hard rock for this purpose like AC/DC or the Scorpions, and race around with that in the background.

I like that. Think I'll try it. Setting the timer is the clincher. You got me with that. Now it's a challenge. Hope my wife doesn't flop over from shock at me doing some housework other than my 'chores'!

Here's my task:
What's your favorite way to squeeze more movement into your day? Tell us about it in the Fitness & Exercise forum.

Since I have both ADHD and OCD, I combine what both need when working through housecleaning and decluttering chores. I'm not always as successful as I would like, and my house sure isn't ready to be a magazine cover, but setting the oven timer for 15 minutes and "racing the clock" in each room of my house while running back and forth to reset the timer burns quite a few calories and gets my daily steps in fairly easily. My ADHD sees it as a game and stays interested while my OCD patiently says, "well, at least you're getting SOMETHING cleaned up."

Let me know if you try it to keep yourself motivated and on track. :-)
