To me, shopping can be a necessary evil …

Unless I can turn it into a positive experience!

Imagine pushing this giant cart around! I saw this after my venture to Farmers Market. Then I got creative with the pumpkins that I picked from both…

As †CHRISTmas/HOLYday† shopping draws to a close, here are ways we can benefit ~ by burning both our wallets and calories at the same time:

  • Cart Press ~ Low Impact (Chest and ‚ô•Cardio‚ô•): Push your cart to work your chest and briskly walk around for ‚ô•cardio‚ô• on the store floor
  • Curl with Both Arms (Biceps): Lift heavy object (i.e., box of soda cans below*) up for a few repetitions at a time; I recommend 10-12
  • Single-Arm Curl (Biceps): Lift light object (i.e., bottle below*) up for a several repetitions per arm; I recommend 15-20
  • Cart Lunges (Thighs): While standing at an aisle and leaning onto the cart handle, step back and drop your knee, one leg at a time
  • Cart Calf Raises (Calves): While waiting at the checkout line and holding onto the cart handle, step on your tippie toes then rock to your ankles for your calves
  • Cart Press ~ High Impact (Chest and ‚ô•Cardio‚ô•): After you unload your groceries, push your cart to work your chest again and run to park it for more ‚ô•cardio‚ô•!
