Wow, I am lame.

I don’t post often because, honestly… I haven’t been busy. LOL (got ya there- another lame comment…fail). I’ve been sleeping. 🙂 However, I am posting because I’ve been sick in bed for almost a week and I’m running out of Netflix Christmas movies. But come January 2nd I will be VERY busy. Changed jobs and will be fully engulfed in my job just like I always am. I’ve taken some time off to re-group, catch up on the sleep I’ve missed for the last 4 + years, hit the gym like I used to, and spend time with people I care about. So here goes nothin– here’s the latest recipe I created along with a workout!

salmon-dinner-plate

1 pan dinner: Ingredients:

  • Wild Salmon (because it’s way better for you duh)
  • FRESH sage
  • Garlic
  • Garlic Powder
  • Lemon
  • Yellow Squash
  • Asparagus
  • Olive Oil
  • Himalayan Salt
  • Pepper

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. If frozen salmon- thaw it in the fridge for 2 hours.
  3. Peel the paper layers off the garlic and discard. Use about 4-5 cloves and finely dice.
  4. Chop up the sage.
  5. Slice the yellow squash into 1/2 inch rounds
  6. Cut 1 inch off the asparagus.
  7. Put thawed salmon on large foiled baking dish.
  8. Add the asparagus and squash anywhere on the foil spread out.
  9. Lightly use the olive oil to sprinkle on salmon and asparagus.
  10. Sprinkle the garlic and sage over the salmon (I add a little bit of garlic over the asparagus as well)
  11. Sprinkle garlic powder over the squash.
  12. Put lemon all over salmon and asparagus (I’m a little addicted to lemon so I add more after its done as well!!)
  13. Add himalayan salt(this kind of salt HYDRATES you instead of dehydrates so you can use as much as you’d like) and pepper to everything to your liking.
  14. Pop that baby in the oven for 10-12 minutes and VOILA!!! Nomzzzz

Dec 2016 | Aug 2015

I only put this picture here to show what almost a year of NOT lifting weights does to you… I was training for a half marathon from November 2015- April 2016 so I held off on weight training and focused all my attention on running.  I might do that half-marathon again this April 2017 but I will incorporate weights into my running routine if I have to because I have never felt so weak in my life than I do now.  The squat rack is NOT my friend currently.  I am strong in other ways like my endurance ( when not sick..)  but I want a well-balanced routine of both strength and endurance. So here’s to new goals and getting back at it in the gym !!

Workouttttt time: Shoulders/ Tri’s

  • Arnold Press : 4 x 10
  • Lateral Raise Catch : 4 x 15
  • Bottoms Up Kettle Bell Press : 4 x 10

  • Dumbbell Front Raise + Row : 4 x 12
  • Z Press : 4 x 8
  • Bench Dips : 4 x 12

Hope everyone had a good weekend full of holiday cheer and joy while I’m crawled underneath my covers searching for more Netflix shows and movies 🙂
