Ahhhhhh – I finally made it to the gym – it was so great! I hopped right on the treadmill, ran 5.5 miles and walked 10 minutes, for a grand total of one hour spent on the dreadtreadmill. It actually wasn’t too bad – however I SWEAT like nobody’s business! Ben was even a little afraid of me when I came home. He was like…really? Really, you’re that sweaty?? HA, yes I was! I love sweating, it makes me feel like I worked HARD!
My dinner was also motivation to get through my workout. When Ben and I lived in Minneapolis, one of our favorite places to go catch a beer during a game, head over for a Saturday lunch, or even order take out from – was the Green Mill. It’s just a bar & grille type restaurant, but something about it really clicked with Ben and I. We miss it so!
Among a great drink selection, a fabulous area for watching games and quick service, one of the main things we liked about the Green Mill was their FOOD. In three years, we never had a meal we didn’t like. One of the dishes, I liked so much, I emailed the company for the recipe – and they gave it to me! Yes!
So what’s this dish you ask? Lemon Pepper Chicken with Artichoke Salsa. YUM! This was on the Green Mill’s “eat right” portion of the menu and it literally took seeing the recipe to convince me that this meal was not un-healthy. It is SO flavorful, so tangy & so delicious – I thought there was no way it could be a healthy meal. Thankfully, I was wrong!
I’ve modified the recipe slightly from what was given to me – I’ll post it tomorrow!
Biggest Loser time!! Final weigh in!! Ahh!!!
