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
