This week my class schedule looked like this.
Friday-cardio dance lite + Tai Chi + shopping
Sure, why not. We park in the back of the lots because of my van. After tai chi I went to Penzeys and Whole Foods. That afternoon we went to ALDI, Sam's Club & Trader Joes. I probably got close to a mile of extra walking in, (especially if you include Trader Joes. Not so smart move going there on opening day.)
Want weights? A case of 32 24 oz bottles of water comes in at around 50lbs. Now throw a whole brisket, a pork loin, about 5lbs of cheese, + the bonus sized cleaning supplies in the cart. My cart at Sams can push 200lbs, especially in sports season w/ the bottled water & gatorade & drinks for kids lunches in there. Juice/milk boxes alone can weigh over 20lbs!
If you want lifting instead of pushing, just forget to have a quarter for ALDI.
The difference is now, I'm not totaled for the entire weekend because of gauntlet. I made the lighter runs to Kohls, Hy-vee and Price Chopper today, and my first thought is not Ow! That alone has made gymfest worth it.
