Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty packed, but great – Saturday involved a lotta (fun!) work, some Mexican, margaritas, and board games, and Sunday we ran a few errands, cleaned, and ended the evening with a little home-cooking:
Shane and I went to Fresh Market as one of our errands yesterday to see that swordfish was on sale! It’s one of Shane’s faves, so we picked it up and cooked it like this:
-brush with extra virgin olive oil
-mix together a rub of salt, pepper, garlic powder, sweet paprika, chili powder, and cayenne; coat both sides
-heat up another tbsp. of olive oil and garlic in a cast iron skillet on medium
-cook fillets for 6 minutes per side in skillet
Swordfish has almost a steak-like texture, and an incredibly delicious taste. However, it is a larger fish, so it likely contains more mercury, so it should only be consumed every once in a while. With our swordfish, we had green beans with Kerrygold butter, and Shane had an onion roll. Great Sunday night dinner!
As for this morning, I’m off to train a couple clients, and then planning on staying at the gym afterword to get in an interval workout on the elliptical (running is still on the fritz for now )
For the occasion, I thought I’d put together a 40-ish minute playlist of the (my) top workout songs for June 2012. Here’s the playlist I put together:
Most of the songs are current/new for June, but there’s a couple favorite oldies like Slow Jams (I <3 Twista – little factoid ) If you’d like to try the playlist, aim for your “speeds” to be about an 8 on the Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) scale and your “recovers” to be around a 5. It’s not HIIT – the intervals will be a little longer, so the “speed” will be a little less intense.
Off to work! Have a great one, guys
Favorite workout song of the moment?
Favorite fish to eat/grill? I probably eat salmon the most, but I’m a big sea bass and tilapia fan, too.
