WOW what an easy burn NOT! Just spent the whole day Christmas shopping and believe it or not my activity tracker credited me with burning 652 Calories. I probably burned a lot more than that but...I'll take it.
See what happened when you help others. The shopping I did today wan't even for me. Our church has a “giving-tree” but we received so many names there’s lots still left. We aren’t sure if it due to the shorten time between Thanksgiving & Christmas or the economy. But we didn't want those expecting gifts to be forgotten or disappointed so our organization decided to go out and purchase them so I took 15…what was I thinking!
So I was on a mission and was not coming home until I was done. I started at 11 am to return home around 2:45 pm – to eat (healthy). Oh and I also needed to regroup to see what I had purchased and what still needed to be bought. Good think I decided to sort things out before going back out. I found that I bought a pair of winter boots for a man but when I matched up the gift receipt I noted it read "WOMEN BOOTS, OH NO! So I would definitely need to exchange them. I also over purchased a few shirts so would need to return them as well. Plus I still had a few “harder” gifts to find to buy.
So after a quick yogurt with bran buds (too much info) I was off again on a mission to get everything bought TODAY! So off the stores I flew, making sure I took my water with keep me hydrated on my travels.
Obviously I got done with my shopping as I’m blogging here. Returned home around pm 7:30…whew! I’m bushed. I still need to wrap everything and although I do love to wrap presents they will have to wait until tomorrow - I'm just too tired. And they aren't due back to church until 12/10 so I have time.
But...I still need to l go for a small jaunt as I’m nearing my 10,000 steps for the day (at 9630) and I so want to get another Glow award –
