Down Down Duvet
Thursday, October 17, 2013
Well, I had great intentions of going to the 6:00 PM Step class tonight, but decided that, after my overly ambitious day yesterday, I should probably spare my knees, so I didn't go.
That decision was helped by the fact that I came up with a great innovation to my laundry routine today. I put my headphones on, kept my iPhone in my back pocket, and played my workout playlist while I was walking around loading the washer, unloading the dryer, folding and putting clothes away. I was not so much walking around as dancing, taking two to three steps for every one I actually needed to to get where I was going.
I was sweating by the end of it, so I must have been burning some extra calories there. (Not sure what to log it as, if anything. It must have been equivalent to about an hour of dancing at a club -- not that I've done that in over 20 years, but if memory serves.)
Anyway, this innovation was borne of desperation. I was feeling a bit mopey and hopeless, and the laundry needed to be done but I just didn't FEEL like it.
So I found a way to make it fun!
I even changed the bedsheets and switched the summer (silk) duvet for the winter (down) one. We've a long way to go yet before it truly gets winter-cold, but in the meantime the down duvet will be nice and cozy.
