I was asked to blog about this, so this is a start: We all have busy days where we find it hard to get in some cardio time. I do what I call Blast Shopping, I get my exercise done combined with my shopping. I have my list in my mind that I need to pick up, I know exactly where they are. So I go in grab a cart, head straight for the produce section, grap and go, then head to the dairy dept, again grab and go, never stopping but pushing the cart as I go. Next I go up and down the isles, going back to front of store, grab what I need from the shelf and never stop, pick it up on the run. I do mean I do not stop for anything. Actually can work up a sweat if I am in long enough. The items I purchase there is no doubt as to price comparison, they are preferred and no substitutions. So grab on the go and on to the next item. Only stop when I get in the check out. I do push myself and usually only do this when I am in a tight time crunch. Today was one of those days, only 15 minutes, but I do start to feel it in my leg muscles. This is how, I combine need for exercise and store errand otherwise I might not be able to get to both and the thing most likely to go will be the exercise. Sort of a task turned into exercise. Usually these are just the basic items that are needed until I have the time to do a proper shopping trip.
