My treadmill is in the basement, right next to the laundry room. Before each workout, I throw a load of wash in the washer. My workout is just long enough for the wash to finish, then I throw it in the dryer after my run. It feels like less of a chore since I'm down there anyway.

When I'm Hungry Between Meals...

If I had an early lunch and supper is running a little later than normal at home, I plug in the air popper and pop some popcorn. I like mine plain so very few calories and no fat. It keeps me til supper is ready plus makes me not as hungry so I eat less.
