No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I honestly had intentions of blogging once a week but I have had so much motivation, and I'm so excited that I just can't help myself! Wednesday night I worked late came home & sat up in bed studying until LATE because I had a test on Thurs! I ended up sleeping in Thurs am because I was so tired. Since I had school I couldn't fit in an am workout. No fear I had a back up plan!!!
We planned to attend a fair downtown last night. So it's about a mile and a half walk each way. My 14 year old wasn't thrilled but I told her that if she wants to go that is how we are getting there! She really wanted to go to see all of her friends. The only trouble was she was hard to keep up with with those long legs!!! I planned well, we ate a light dinner of fish and vegetables so that we could do a little food tasting while we were there. There are lots of food venders and part of the fun is trying something new. We recently got a new Thai restaurant in our town that was going to have a booth at the fair, so I looked up the menu at home before we left & decided what I wanted to try and found the nutrition info. We got Panang curry chicken and Pad Thai to share. I had a couple bites of each & was happy with that. The Panang Chicken was my favorite, coconut'y spicy broth & veggies & chicken I've got to find a copycat recipe that isn't as high! The nutrition info on Spark was really high! We watched fire dancers/breathers preform! It was amazing, but all I could think of was how toxic the fuel must be and all for entertainment sake! I've walked more miles this week than I have in a long time! This fair occurs weekly during the summer so hopefully if my work schedule allows we can do this again!
I found a cool site gmap-pedometer
Enter your zip code and figure out how many miles your walking route is. Time yourself you will know how many mi/hr you walked! So cool since I don't have a pedometer. Our house is in a really convenient place to walk from, it's a country road only about a mile and a half from downtown. I created an account and I'm plugging in a bunch of walks that I want to do. The closest grocery store is less than a mile away, & the movie theater isn't far from that! I'm excited!!!
