Does shopping count as exercise?

January 4th, 2007 at 12:14 pm

How about swimming to the car? It is pouring rain here today and I managed to get to the car and get the specials at CVS. This is the first month I have really concentrated on reading the circulars and trying to catch the good sales. For one thing, I don't usually stock up much on toiletries or cleaning supplies. Believe it or not, it was a tough thing to buy a toothpaste on sale and get one free. I am having to work on changing a mindset. In honor of it being January of the new year, I decided to jump in and even if I make mistakes, I will learn something. And maybe, just maybe, get it right. So, I've hit three stores in two days and bought the items I use which seem to be good deals. I really do need that price book....

I'm glad that Tina spelled it out to us that we need to cut 250 calories a day in order to loose half a pound a week. That seems to be an easier way to "see" things we can do. Now, about that exercise.....

    hey, don't forget you can also keep up your current activity and cut out 250 calories worth of food! or, 125 in exercise and 125 less in food... so, 2 fewer cookies and a 20 min walk should just about do it... too bad i already ate my cookies for today ...
