Put your Texas heels in a totebag and hoof it in sneakers! You'll burn 100 calories more per mile than you would have sitting behind the wheel. Save on gas, save on a gym'll just need to buy new sneaks every 3 months :)

And for fun, look around and see if anyone is already doing this. You might be surprised (or you might not...Texas is so truck-crazy!)

OP here..its husband started riding his bike to work, but he doesnt live far from work, I have to cross a major street, I really dont care though. I cannot afford the gas...I havent gone to the gym, bc of gas, I have been running outdoors bc of gas so there is no reason why I cannot walk to work bc of gas!!

a comment from another texas gal ... i would LOVE to walk to work. i live about 2 miles from a train station and could walk to that and take the train to work. except here in texas, it gets to be 10,000 degrees so what's a girl to do when she's a sweaty, stinking mess by the time she gets there?

Thats my dilemma also...grrrr!!!! This is so hard...why does it have to be this hard!! I wish that stupid oil guys with all of their billions of dollars would just give it up...before they get killed by us angry americans (and Texans) who cannot afford their stinky gas!!! And scene...

I am altering my hours starting in June to 4 days a week so I can save money. I drive 32 miles one way to work.

I also started hypermiling.
