I hopped back onto the calorie counting/working out train last week, and have been doing pretty well so far. Last night I went to the gym, which is in the same complex, but across the lot, from Von's. Did my workout then remembered I had to go buy some veggies for lunch, and I figured I'd jog across the parking lot rather than driving the 20 seconds it would take to get there.
Got to Von's okay, got my veggies, then found a whole bunch of other things on sale - whole chickens! Club soda! Wheat crackers! Cheese! (AKA: heavy stuff!!) Loaded up my cart, checked out - 12 bags later! - then started wheeling my cart back to my car.
Cue 15 car lengths to go. SCREECH!!!! Cart jerks to a COMPLETE halt, and refuses to budge even an inch. Apparently Von's recently implemented that awesome limited cart zone, whereby the wheels lock up the second it hits the boundary a certain distance from the store. Wish I'd known that since I was leaning quite comfortably over the cart handle and pretty much jammed it full-speed into my ribs!! Clear knocked the wind out of me!!!
