Air conditioned mall is a great place to walk
My New Year’s resolution was to pay more attention to my health and maybe lose a little weight.
I decided to do this by watching what I eat and also walking every single day. This lasted until about April when it became too hot and humid to continue my nightly walks. Not to mention all of the biting bugs that came out as summer came in. I wish there was a way to air condition my entire city and keep the bugs away. Of course this is not possible so I checked out a gym. It was air conditioned but not what I was looking for. It seemed like a lot of money just to walk. Besides, I would rather walk somewhere and see things and people, not just walk in place for an hour. That is also why I decided not to get my own treadmill. Finally, I discovered mall walking. Apparently this is a thing and I had no idea until now. However, I love it. I end up walking over two miles every day through the mall. I am not shopping, but I do sometimes pick up a few things. I just like walking in the air conditioned building. I can still get my exercise while not roasting to death or being eaten by nasty bugs. I also do not get bored because I’m not waking in place and the stores always have different displays and I see different people all of the time. I am so glad I can get back to walking again and that I can stay cool while doing it.
