Exercise your way to Doing Laundry

Last week I started to exercise regularly, just starting out with some crunches, pushups, and those arm curling things. I picked an arbitrarily small set of guidelines: Stretch! Push the muscles until I feel them, cuz the discomfort is SUPPOSED to be there! If I’m not constantly aware of my muscles the next day, I haven’t pushed enough! I just noticed today, when taking down a huge pile of laundry from the upstairs hamper—and by hamper, I do mean the entire upstairs—that controlling the basket was considerably easier than I remember it being. Of course, I can’t remember the last time I did laundry either, but it is a small boost in the right direction. Booyah!
