Get Physical: Wander Around a Street Fair

I love a good street fair. They are a great opportunity for me and my husband (and the kids) to get out of the house, walk around, and pick up a few goodies. As the gift giving season comes upon us, I love going to festivals and fairs to find unique gifts for my family and friends. Besides the fun factor of finding random treasures for yourself and others, you can burn upwards of 380* calories from walking around a street fair for about two hours. It's not a ton, but it's better than sitting on the couch, and you'll also be logging in steps so that you can reach your goal of 10,000 steps per day.

Street fairs are happening all of the time, and holiday themed ones are on the horizon, so be sure to check your local listings for festivals and fairs near you.

Fit's Tip: Be sure to watch any foods you eat while wandering a street fair, since one deep fried Twinkie will leave you in a surplus of calories, despite all the walking you've done.
