Lose Weight, Gain Dirty Laundry
It’s been a few weeks since I started this whole lifestyle change and one thing I noticed was that my dirty laundry has grown tremendously. It’s as if the more I workout, the more dirty clothes I have. It’s nothing major, just something I started noticing as I was doing laundry the other day. More sweat equals more dirty clothes. Pretty simple when you think of it, but most of the time we don’t think of these little things.
Just think. Let’s say you workout twice a day: once in the morning and once at night when you get home. That’s two shirts, two pants/shorts, four socks, and two underwear (add in bras or sports bras if your a woman) that are dirty and that you need to account for in a day. Let’s then say that you do this five times a week. That’s all that times five. So if you do laundry once week, like I do, then that’s about load of clothes just from your working out per week. I don’t know about you but I don’t dirty that much clothes normally, so it kinda effects my bottom line in a way. Having to spend more water, detergent, conditioner, and electricity isn’t something I like to do.
There are a few ways to lessen the heaping mound of dirty laundry that you build up but it sometimes isn’t worth it. For example, you can wear the same shorts and shirt for a couple of days, which is gross. You can also wear the same socks and underwear, but at the risk of a potential fungal bacteria.
I guess when you think about it, it really isn’t all that serious of a matter. I was just bored and having do some laundry so I decided to write about it. Oh well, back to washing my sweaty gym clothes. They don’t seem that nasty when you’re wearing them. Yuck.
