Workout Playlist for June 2012

Morning, morning Open-mouthed smile

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


SO good.


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 Confused smile)

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 Smile) 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 Open-mouthed smile

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.

    I ate fish last week for the first time since becoming a vegetarian nearly three years ago and it made me so sick! I remember you saying you didn’t have a difficult transition from eating veggie to eating meat, but holy smokes my stomach was not happy with me. The fish you made looks pretty darn good though!
