How Housework Keeps You in Shape

Whenever some of us hear the word exercise, we tend to run in the opposite direction.

How many times have you had a gym membership and only ever showed up once or twice during the length of that membership?

You would be surprised at how many people are in the same shoes as you are.  Even I can attest to this, too many times.

Perhaps you enjoy exercising but do not have time to incorporate it into your daily regime.

It may also be possible that you hate the effort that needs to be put forth to exercise effectively. I do not like exercising. BLAH

The fact of the matter is, it is not necessary for you to hit the gym on a regular basis to get in shape. All you need to do is keep your house clean.
