Who knew that shopping was considered a form of physical activity?
It may not be a high-intensity aerobic workout, but if you are pounding the pavement at the mall with a lengthy holiday shopping list, you could be burning a fair number of calories.
During a three-hour shopping spree, you can burn up to about 600 calories. If you skip the elevator or escalator in the mall, you'll end up burning an additional 12 calories per minute climbing.
