Urban Hiking

In an effort to start the new year off right, I've come up with a few guidelines (not resolutions, I never manage to keep those) for 2009.

1. Its time to get my fat butt moving. Get away from the computer and start doing more. Maybe even (dare I say it?) do some exercising.

2. Eat some veggies. My diet has historically been horrible, a few veggies wouldn't kill me. so I want to start simply with incorporating veggies into at least one meal a day.

So yesterday, when I realized I needed something to make for dinner, I came up with a great plan.

They just opened a little neighborhood market about half a mile from my house. I've threatened in the past to take a walk down there to shop, as my husband burst into fits of laughter.

So I thought to myself "why not do it? Make it an Urban Hike. Get a little fresh air and exercise while picking up some necessities?"

I grabbed my special "look how green I am" canvas bags and my Daughter, and off we went to the market.

How's that for keeping resolutions, er, I mean guidelines. =p

Go You! I bet you'll start to love doing those walks to the market.
As for veggies... ugh. I made myself eat green beans last night, but it was a challenge. Good luck with the health bit.

I'd like to make the walk to the market a weekly event. Not for major shopping as I would have to carry it all home, but for odds and ends.
