Can I Get a Woot Woot!?

I did it! I got my folding wheeling grocery bag, and I walked to the grocery store for the first time tonight! I feel so good about myself! I have become so sedentary with my job at the computer and taking the kids everywhere in the car... I am hoping to change that with my grocery trips (at least some of them)!

The funny thing is... I thought it would take me MUCH longer to go shopping if I walked. I got there (.75 miles) in a little less than 15 minutes. Granted, driving would have taken me about 3 minutes, but considering I got a work-out in there at the same time, it was a lot quicker than I thought it would be!

I wonder what adding a half hour walk will do for me? I can't wait to find out! :)

By the way, my grocery bag is totally awesome. I am posting the link here in case anyone else wants to get up and moving!

Woot Woot!! Not only are you green - you are so European! We used these in France ALL the time. Except ours were lovely loud plaid. This black is much nicer and understated.

Wonderful! I used to do my grocery shopping on foot with a backpack, back in my Arlington days. I was so much fitter and thinner when I wasn't getting in my car to do everything!
