When shopping, I tend to have the impulse of reach and drop into the shopping cart. Lose the weight from the shopping cart and do another lap or two before checking out by putting things back that you WANT vs Need. put it on a list to get Later. It gives you an odd satisfaction.

When I do my grocery shopping without my kids I like to park the farthest from the grocery store. When I'm done loading my groceries into my car I return my shopping cart back into the store. It's one less cart that the cart guy has to bring in and I feel good knowing that I got a little extra steps in for the day.
When I buy groceries, I do two brisk laps pushing my cart around the perimeter of the store before I shop. Then, I move as swiftly as possible down the aisles. Once the cart is full, I again do two quick laps around the store before checking out. This works in any big store.
Do you ever place your purse in the empty baby carrier of the shopping cart? Take an extra minute to loop and fasten the baby safety strap thru your purse strap. Now you can take your time reading those nutrition labels and give your arms and shoulder a rest. If a thief decides to grab your purse, he will have to run away with the cart as well!! ;) 148
