    Hey! I'm Beth - a 27 year old foodie living and working in the Washington, DC area who has lost almost 90 pounds through Weight Watchers.

Post Workout Glow

Jen over at Prior Fat Girl routinely puts up pictures of weight loss bloggers of their post-workout sweaty selves, so I just submitted that picture to her. ๐Ÿ™‚

This sweat was a result of:

  • 12 minutes on the stationary bike at level 10 (3.25 miles)
  • Upper body weights: Bicep Curls, Tricep Dips, Rows, Chest Press
  • Running 5.6 mph at 2.5-3.5 incline for 42 minutes (~ 4 miles)

It was a great workout and I did the run really slow just to loosen up because I am hoping to be a speedster tomorrow at my 5k! Adding the incline makes it so much harder, and I rarely run on an incline so I always forget how much of a difference it makes.

I had half of this PURE bar before my workout, and half after. It was GOOD. It’s all organic and raw (nothing is cooked!) and the list of ingredients was so simple it made me smile.

After showering away my post workout glow ( ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I made dinner for my boyfriend and I and I did good! I made a salad with spinach, roasted peppers, and cucumbers, and then did baked potatoes with broiled salmon. I made a cucumber dill sauce that went with both the salmon and the potato and even the chef was impressed! =)

That is light sour cream, dill, shallots, cucumber, salt and pepper before I mixed it all together. And then:

This sauce was SO good. I will definitely be making it again!

This blurry picture does not do the meal justice, I swear. We devoured the plates within a few minutes (and used all of the cucumber dill sauce!). Nothing terribly exciting going on tonight because I have to get up early for the 5k tomorrow. Wish me luck!
