Monthly Grocery Shopping = A Workout!
Sometimes when it's hard to get your exercise in you have to look at unique ways to get it in. Here is one I like to use. At the beginning of the month, I go to the grocery. I like to go by myself and I usually leave early on a Saturday morning when dh is home to watch the kids. Most of the time they are not even up before I go. I buy pretty much all for the month on that day. I usually go back for milk, produce and bread but that's about it. Getting a month's worth of groceries for 6 is no easy thing! I also try to make it harder on myself be making it a race. I race around the store and get everything I need and then I go back in and get all of the cold stuff because it usually takes 1 1/2 carts to get everything. Sometimes I go to one more store because the other one does not carry everything I need. Then I come home and unload ever thing myself and then I organize and put it up. I like doing it this way and it really is a great workout! I think I might even start counting 1 activity point for it!
