  • Put on something sexy and comfortable at the same time (my friend cleans in her lingerie), I just put on short cheerleading shorts and a small tight shirt and turn up some upbeat music and clean and dance. So, I get cleaning and exercise done at the same time.

  • I make a list of what I want to accomplish that day and then I do it until the list is done. That's for cleaning. For exercise I try to find a friend who will exercise, too. Walk with me, or take a class. I'm not very self-motivated for exercise. If I find a DVD that I like, or a TV exercise program that is fun, then I am more inclined to stay with it.

  • I generally also like upbeat music, but also usually have some coffee or something with caffeine to give me more energy. I also like to make myself wait to do something I like doing, until I'm finished with something I don't like. (that does not always happen tho!!) Mostly self-discipline is needed, I guess.
