Why is grocery shopping not listed as excercise?

Monday, January 11, 2021

Today I grocery shopped, loaded the car, unloaded the car and put the groceries away. I shopped for the week so I had a lot of groceries and heavy items. It took 2.5 hours of physical activity! I think this should be trackable! It’s a work out! Besides that I was proud of my cart! A good 1/4 of it was fruits and veggies, then healthy meats, whole grain bread, canned beans for chili, eggs. The chips I got were baked and I got some quick protein bars that I can grab for lunch or a snack. I prepped most of the fruit except still gotta do a watermelon and pineapple. I’m proud of my 1st solid week in awhile. I’ve planned my dinners for the week and have lots of good choices for the other meals. Today I had grapes while I cooked dinner and that kept me from pre dinner snacking. I’m finding if good options are available and easy, I’ll make better choices.

    Way to go. Thanks for the grapes tip. I am really bad at snaking while preparing. Keep up the great work!

    I totally agree about grocery shopping as a "workout!" You take them off the shelf and put them in the cart, out of the cart and on the line, from the line into the bag (nobody has real live checkers anymore!), place the bags into the cart, then push the loaded cart to the car, lift them all into the car, lift them out of the car, and put them all away... Makes me tired just thinking about it! So glad I only have two to shop for! You made great choices, keep it up! emoticon emoticon emoticon
