5 Star Bingo - day two

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Yesterday, I focused on the "pamper yourself" parts of the challenge so today I thought I'd share a few pics of my walk to Wal-Mart. I needed to make my 45 minutes (fell short, walked too fast) and I needed to pick up a few things for dinner so I thought I'd kill two birds. Roo and I set out around 3:00. It's mostly downhill and/or flat all the way there so I was making pretty good time. Less than 10 minutes in, she fell asleep. Which means I had no one to talk to. Which means I was now pretty bored. I'm SO not a good walker. Anyway, I made the 4-ish kms in about 33 minutes. Yay for downhill!! I'll definitely do that walk again although, for the height challenged (not afraid, just nervous), it's a little bit iffy. First I had to take a pedestrian overpass over one of our main roads and then I had to walk over Highway 2 (Deerfoot if you're from Calgary) on another stretch. FYI, the width of a sidewalk on an overpass is laughable. I rubbed the meridian TWICE with the jogging stroller. Here's a couple of views along the way:



I fully intended to walk back home, too but when I came out it was raining so I called Paul to rescue us. Next time, for sure.
Tonight's dinner was salmon, stir-fried kale & carrots with brown rice. I got the recipe on Spark and, for my BINGO, used it to score 3 squares. Here's the recipe, if you're feeling adventurous: recipes.sparkpeople.com/

Well, I'm off to do some yoga. I might also try this: youtu.be/2U9bVmVL7FY

    Ah, I know Deerfoot Mall well. Lived not far from there growing up. In fact, learned to drive in that parking lot! Still go there frequently, since my dentist is just up the road. Thanks for sharing your day with us.
