After my kiddo went to summercamp today, I decided to do dance/Strength Training while doing laundry.

Essentially, it goes like this: I turn on some party mix music and dance as I fold and hang laundry. However, as I'm folding, I'm putting them into piles as far as where they belong. Sometimes I do Strength Training as I'm putting them down, sometimes I do it when I "empty" a spot (finish putting it away), sometimes I do both.

The kiddo left late today, I only did my strength training as I emptied the spots.

I also did my laundry in the living room, which is across the house from the bedroom.. so every time I finished I pile, I carried the hung clothing into the bedroom, and went back for more.

Overall, I laundry-cized about 16 minutes and burned 127 calories. Not bad. Especially since my goal (for now) is at least 100 calories burned every morning I do this!

Edit: My son went to summercamp, not school. Oops!

    Great way to do the laundry! I purposely make multiple trips when putting everything away into the closets and drawers, in order to rack up my daily step count. Your way sounds more fun!
