I have created a weekly dinner menu. This way I dont have to think about what we are having and when we are going to have it. I walk through the door from work, change into my clothes, start dinner and head to the treadmill. I walk for 30 minutes, adjusting to the hop off time to get to the kitchen to check on the meal that is cooking, sometimes I wait until I have walked the 30 mintues to start. Then I do cardo workouts in the kitchen while finishing dinner up.
I dont eat as much when I set down due to the fact I feel full after I excercise and I want and drink more water instead of going for a Seirra Mist or tea.

Every night before going to sleep I put myself through a routine of stretches. Most involve my legs and hips. Takes 7-10 minutes. Helps me to relax and I sleep more sound. Not tossing and turning with moving my legs.
I've gotten in the habit of doing small amounts of housework during the commercials of my favorite nightly TV shows. It's amazing what I can get done in the 2-3 minutes of each commercial break! I've managed to get my entire living room clean during "House" - the dishes washed by hand during "Bones" - the bathroom spotless from a single episode of "Big Bang Theory". You really can get a log done - plus you are moving every ten minutes, so burning calories as well!
