Um seriously how are we still getting weather like this? We are living on borrowed time my friends because any day now the rains will come. But until they do, we’re taking advantage of it.
Like yesterday when we decided to hit up Journeys after work (me in flip flops and shorts).
Sadly they are no longer serving hard cider on draft. This may be a blessing in disguise. I certainly don’t need those extra calories.
And before we hit up Journey’s we had a delicious salmon dinner. This is one of the 1st meals Chris made for me when we were dating and I’ve always loved it.

- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 ingredients. How easy is that? Dump them directly onto the (fresh) salmon filet, rub it around and throw it all on the grill.
We served it with grilled, spicy asparagus (olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes) and wild rice (from a box – not my finest moment).
So good. I could eat that meal every day but I admit that salmon is the one protein we don’t eat enough around here but we need to be better. So many nutritional benefits.
In other news, my workout yesterday was pretty typical – a pilates reformer class and 30 minutes on the elliptical split into before and after class segments. And as for my two challenges, I am not at all doing good with the sugar-free variety. Those darn M&M’s from my mom are just too tough to exist.
And with that, I’m out. I shall leave you with this picture of my night. How glorious is that for this time of year?
