Some people might not realize that they are burning calories as they work their way through a variety of household tasks. For example, dusting burns around 174 calories in an hour so if you spent an afternoon dusting you would likely burn over 500 calories. If you want to work on toning your arms, you can strap on light weights to your arms as you dust.
