Park with Calories on Your Mind
As mentioned at the end of the last post, about burning calories while you shop, parking is part of the experience. Let’s face it. Wherever you go, you need to park your car. And lucky for you, this gives you an opportunity to burn even more calories, as you’ll see in this post.
It’s easy to get into a competition with another driver and battle for the best parking spot. For some of us, this competition is a daily habit.
But what if you changed how and where you park to add more fitness to your life?

Where could you park that would support your efforts to burn calories?
Chances are, the answer to this question will enable you to avoid all that competition over by the door!
