Walk While You Wait


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My feet were moving while my vehicle received 4 new tires. I didn't sit and wait the hour in front of a TV in a waiting room. Previous times I brought a book, this time I brought my dog and we walked nearly 4 miles during the hour appointment.

Dress for the weather - mittens, hat, thermals, headband. Bringing a canine pal along for safety in unknown neighborhoods. GPS comes in handy so you don't get lost. A pedometer to measure your distance.

    Keke, I thought your idea was so great when I read your blog. A wonderful way to wait for the car to be repaired. Thanks for sharing it.

    Awesome secret! I agree with Monty that the idea needed to be shared here for others to see too:) I'm going to find ways to incorporate your idea into my day when I'm waiting for my DD at her activities.

    That is a fabulous way to take advantage of our limited time! So many people including myself say they just don't have time. That's why I started walking to and from work. Great idea!! emoticon
