New Year's Challenge Day 15: Wash It Out

You're about half-way through the New Year's Resolution Weight Loss Challenge! Congrats on making it this far!

Your activity for January 15 is perfect for the weekend, when you have more time to catch up on household tasks. Make the most of cleanup time with today's activity: Wash It Out.

Take 30 minutes today and wash something very thoroughly. Do it quickly and with as much energy as you can muster. You could vacuum all the carpeted rooms in your house, wash your windows, scrub your refrigerator, mop your floors, or all of the above. Whatever you choose to do, use as much movement and intensity as you can, so that you're getting a workout as you do it.

Hopefully by the end of the day, you'll have completed a good workout and your house will be a little cleaner! Tell us what you cleaned and how it felt in your reply below!

If you're looking for more info on this topic, here's a good article about how you can turn household chores into workout sessions.

If you missed the activity for January 14, you can find it here.

Thats very sweet of you hubby, mine does most of the cleaning too. Although I kinda feel bad for not doing most of the house work when he is the one actually going off to work. But he said that he would rather have a healthy fun happy child than have me and him both be frustrated at the end of the day because I couldn't spend very much time with him because of all the housework. So I guess I can't complain. But these next 6 months I am on my own, so we shall see how that goes.

Quoting KrazyMyra:

 dh always cleans the house. its still clean now lol. maybe i will make a mess tomorrow just for the challenge lol
