MIMM [Workout, Blog Birthday, Recipe]
Ooooooookay so I know it’s late in the day, but I am finally sitting down after a long day of work + a meeting + cooking, and I’m ready to join Katie and all the others for Marvelous in My Monday!
We going allllll the way back to Saturday when I had my first group run for Team Total Health. I haven’t mentioned much about TTH on the blog, but it’s basically a group of people from our community who share a common goal in life, and that’s to be healthy! The group was started by a local dentist (Dr. Jimmy Gardiner, GO TO HIM! ) who wants to emphasize total health, including dental health of course! Hence the name Team TOTAL Health. I’m really excited to be part of this group and can’t wait to see what this year brings!
A group from TTH met Saturday morning to run 5 miles together. I’ll be honest, the pace was much faster than I ever would have gone, but I pushed myself hard and averaged a pace of 9:19. For 5 miles, that’s great for me!
Here are some of us after our run.
It was definitely a marvelous run!
Another marvelous thing about my Saturday? An afternoon coffee pick-me-up while Chad and his nephew enjoy some cupcakes.
That night I made a super marvelous dinner for me and the boys.
I gave the boys real noodles of course, but for me it was spaghetti squash, tomato sauce, homemade meatballs, and parm! SO GOOD. I hope my MIL doesn’t get upset when I confess that the nephew said it was the best meal he’s ever eaten.
Sunday is always marvelous because it’s a REST DAY! Those are so important, and I am more than happy to take one (or more!) a week.
This morning, it was back to reality with a 4:30 am wake-up. Ugh. At least Chad and I were able to get in a really
awesome marvelous lower body + abs workout. Take a look!
Chad and I would switch up workouts during the supersets. While I was doing weighted side crunches, he was doing leg presses, etc. It was actually fun. Try it out with your sweetheart in honor of Valentines day coming up!
Here’s something else marvelous that I just realized… It’s the official 1 year anniversary/birthday of Eat Sweat Sing! I started blogging in August 2011 as a way to document my new life as a wife and to document my weight-loss journey. Over 6 months, my blog evolved into what it is today. So happy birthday Eat Sweat Sing!
So to end this completely random post detailing all the random marvelousness in my life the past three days, how about a look at tonight’s dinner?
Parmesan encrusted tilapia, roasted green beans, and baked sweet potatoes. This made my tummy happy!
Thanks to this girl for the tilapia inspiration! I took her suggestion and tweaked it a bit to create a new version of boring tilapia. I don’t really measure spices, so this is just an estimate of what I used.
Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia
- 4 small tilapia fillets
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 2 tbs bread crumbs
- 2 tbs parmesan cheese
Coat both sides of tilapia in mixture and cook on medium heat in a greased skillet for 4-5 minutes on each side. EASY!
Off to find something sweet before bed and yet another 4:30 am wake-up call. Have a marvelous night!
