Just because we needed another excuse to go shopping..according to a story that ran on the Daily Mail, shopping burns off 48,000 calories a year. That's about five calories in a minute. The study also found that the average woman covers "2.96 miles on a shopping trip" (that's about 154 miles a year) and two-thirds of the 3,000 women polled said they "preferred to walk briskly to get everything done as quickly as possible. " 7 in 10 even said they felt exhausted after a shopping trip. What do you think of the study? Did you know shopping could burn so many calories...sounds like an ideal workout to me.
