My Inner French Girl
I arrived home from work today and realized I hadn't planned anything for dinner. Hmm..since Kali's (seriously carnivorous) boyfriend was due home from a business trip, I decided to make him a special (read: meat-laden) dinner to welcome him. I had some ground beef thawed for the dogs I figured he & Beren could share that..giggle. Since it was only just after noon, I figured I could toss something into the slowcooker. A quick google search resulted in this meatloaf recipe. Sounds good, right? I mean, if you're not a mostly-vegetarian watching your weight. Alas, no eggs. I grabbed my keys and was ready to jump into Bettie when I thought..wait! It's a beautiful day, why don't I just walk to the market like the French girls do! Oui! Oui!
While my Suburban streets are nothing like gay Paris, there are lots of shade trees making for a pleasant walk.
Half an hour later, I'm back home preparing dinner, feeling pretty fabulous about my petite accomplissement!
Once again, I stayed on program and managed to burn over 200 calories on that walk. Enough for a little glass of vin, no?
Have a Beauty-Full Evening,
