Over the hump…

I have a new obsession. Cycle class.

I’m starting to feel like myself again after getting hit with some type of bug last week and so I decided to try a cycle class last night at the gym. While some people may find it annoying to race, race, race, in one place-I think it’s fabulous. I’ve never sweated so much in my life!

While I love to run outside, it’s been cold and rainy here lately so I see more visits to the gym in my future. After the Thunder Road Half I am excited to do more group classes and take a little break from running.

Lunch yesterday was Panera! I opted for the soup and salad vs. the soup and sandwich. My apple was surprisingly good yesterday too…

Mid-day snack was some Calm Tazo tea in a “Better Smarter Faster” mug 🙂 Clearly, I have to keep myself motivated…

some almonds on the side along with a granola bar helped to keep me full till dinner.

Soy-Glazed Salmon


  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine, or water
  • 2 pounds salmon fillet
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. with a rack in the center. Make the glaze: In a small bowl, stir brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and white wine until the sugar has dissolved.

    Cut salmon fillet into 4 equal-size pieces; arrange, skin side down, in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour glaze over the fish, and turn to coat evenly.

    Bake until fish is opaque but still bright pink inside, basting every few minutes with glaze from baking dish, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.

    (I was  craving some bread so I whipped up some biscuits to go along with the meal-as well as steamed some brocoli.) Total time for dinner=30 minutes.
