If you got to the mall, you must walk around the whole mall before you go into each store. What an easy way to burn calories.

Well, that's helpful! I especially liked the "General to Heavy house cleaning: 1 hour = 191 calories" part. That's what I'm going to be doing all week until we leave for our ski trip on the 29th!

Thank you AKAYCAT
I'll burns calories in my family reunion. I am on bed all sofa all day. I walk from my bed to my sofa and that is my only exercise everyday. That is because I refuse to use the weelchair. I have a lot of help from my children and my husband.

Show hospitality to strangers for, by doing that, some have entertained angels unawares.
Never stop helping others because others think that they abuse you. That stranger can be Jesus and you lose the opportunity to serve, even in something simple.
