Some of you might be familiar with the phrase “I eat hills for breakfast.” Today, it was true! First, this hill ten times…Then, this beast five times.I’m not a huge fan of hills, but at least I had Anthony around to help get me out the door and tackle this monster. He joined me for a mile warmup, and then headed out for his own run (for some reason he didn’t want to join me for repetitive hill torture?). ps I have no idea what those green dots are on him? Looks like snipers were after us this morning.After my hilly adventure, I headed to the gym for some stunts with my favorite Bosu ball etc. After lots of running, squats, lunges, calf raises, bridges, and wall sits, it’s safe to say my legs are fried. It feels bad, but good. You know?Hills for breakfast… fish for dinner! I tried this Food Network recipe: Broiled halibut with pea puree, with one major difference: I didn’t use halibut! That stuff is $26 a pound, which is a bit expensive for a Tuesday night dinner, you know? We used a white fish called paiche instead, which was similar and on sale :).Pea puree was pretty fun to make — and way more fun to eat than boring old peas. I also whipped up a “harvest grain blend” from Trader Joes for some extra staying power. Even though this dinner looks fancy, it was actually quite easy!We’d give this a 9/10 overall. Easy, yummy, healthy, and semi-cheap, if you can find a fish on sale :).
Now, off to work! Have a wonderful day!
