Spring Fit Tip: Park and Shop

Are you guys sick of me talking about how Spring is nearly here? I can't stop; I love Spring. Last weekend it was just gorgeous in my neck of the woods and I decided to do a little shopping around town. Instead of getting in our car in between each place (what I do when it's cold out), I opted to park in a central location and walk from place to place. If I acquired bags then I'd walk back to the car, drop the bags off, and continue on my way. By the end of our little shopping excursion, I felt great. Sure it takes a little longer but I wasn't in a hurry. Not only was the sun shining, but I was on my feet moving around all day while getting all my errands done (and not using a lot of gas). What could be better? Try it out next time you're shopping and it's nice out.

Last Monday it got up to almost 50 degrees here and I went grocery shopping without my coat for the first time in months!! I was so excited. I parked in the way back at Walmart and walked through the parking lot just enjoying the warmness (oh, and I was glad that I didn't have to fight off any obese soccer moms for the front parking spots, lol).

yep, we're still rainy and gross up here most of the days. but we have had some beautiful weekends and i definitely do the whole parking in a central location and walking from store to store.

I hate driving (and having to find parking!), so I usually do this if at all possible.

I love outdoor malls, since you can enjoy the nice weather and walk from store to store.

I don't have a car, so I have to do this all year long. However, it's a lot more enjoyable in the spring and fall.
