I did it. I actually got up this morning and took the dogs to the park near my house. It was later than I planned and therefore a little hotter - about 82F at 9am. Learned a couple lessons though. Gotta take water for the pups - they're so used to the A/C that they immediately start panting when we walk out the door. Gotta take water for me too, especially in this heat. We had to stop at a convenience store and grab some water for humans and canine alike. But we did it! Three miles in 1 hour and 15 minutes. That includes poop and pee stops for the pups, the water break and even geocache! Fun was had by all.
After a short break to recoup from the heat, I grabbed a shower, made the menu for next week then grabbed the daughter for a shopping trip. Stopped by Chic-Fil-A for lunch and probably should have had the grilled chicken instead of the original and probably should have had water instead of sweet tea, but the side salad was a good substitute for the fries, right? Besides, I skipped breakfast this morning. I didn't eat before the walk and completely forgot about it afterwards. It all works out in the end, doesn't it?
This afternoon, after putting away all the groceries, I was entering my food for the day on MyFitnessPal when I noticed a recipe link for a Chicken & Black Bean Burrito Bowl. Doesn't that just sound good? So I clicked the link and I liked 98.9% of the ingredients. SCORE! It was from another blog called 24 Carrot Life. Here it is…
