Dodging crowds, walking store to store, lunging after that perfect gift.. Christmas shopping is a workout in itself. As your rushing from store to store, you can’t believe how much you walk and how many calories you burn! In one day of shopping, I have to check my blood sugars more than normal because I tend to go a little low when I’m running around constantly. I also often forget to eat because of how busy I am. Today’s Monday Motivation for Day 22 of the Type Happy Holiday Challenge is to use a pedometer as you shop and see how much you walk around! (most smartphones have a pedometer app that you can use too) So far I’m at 1,054 and the day just started! Make sure to not give into that holiday stressful energy, shop at your own pace. Remember to test often if you tend to go low and eat a healthy substantial meal to give yourself energy for your long day.
Ready, set, shop!
