Think you're a multi-tasker but still can't find time to exercise? Problem solved with "The cLEAN momma workout: Get lean while you clean." The book explains how author Carolyn Barnes sought to find time to keep her house clean while shedding pounds. The result: "Taskercizes" created to help you lose weight, enjoy yourself and get the house in tip-top shape.
Included in the book are recipes, cleaning tips and moves such as "the vacuum lunge," "the tub tush squeeze" and "the rag-drag." And the methods work for more than cleaning: You can do them in your car, while you shop or even while you watch your children at the playground. Although it may sound goofy, the exercises can provide you with intense toning and - yes, really! - a clean home. Carolyn's approach is reminiscent of functional fitness concepts, where you exercise using moves that you use in "real life." For that reason, also recommended is "Functional Fitness: Look Younger, Stay Active Longer."
