getting older = more calories burned

Saturday, February 02, 2013

The best part of getting older for me is that I get more exercise - unintentionally!

Did you ever walk to the other end of the house to get something, then forget what it was you were going to get? When this happens, I go back to my original spot, at which time I remember - so then I have to go all the way to the other side of the house again, hopefully remembering then. Extra steps here!

On my way out the door to work, I sometimes have difficulty finding my car keys. And after looking all through the house, a few times, before I find them (and they are usually where they are supposed to be, on the counter near the door - duh) I can walk many, many extra steps and very quickly so as not to be late!

And let's not forget the - I forgot where I parked the car at the mall syndrome!
Or - The sun is so bright I can't see when I come out of the store to find my car.

Exercise by accident! I'll take it! emoticon

    Hey there are tons of step to be had that way. Just remember the pedometer or you will forget about where you walked!

    Good to know since I'm on the downhill side of 50! I finally have designated a container to put my keys and phone in so I can find them quickly. I usually remember to put them in it but not always!

    loved this blog and i love that you are happy about your accidental exercise. my husband gets mad when it happens to him I just laugh. the other day I got home form groceries put everything away , and realized i did not have my coupon organizer. was trying to think if i left it in the cart as I put it in the proper place. but I had no recollection of putting cart away or getting in my car which is weird for me. all week i was going to call the store but kept forgetting good thing because i found on the side of my car seat where it fell ,a week a go . what a brain i have but i remember to exercise and eat right so hey . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
