1.5 mile walk with D in the stroller and the Husband.
Then I did the Pinterest workout from July 15th. I changed it up a little. I did the crunches on a ball and instead of arm circles I did lateral raises with 8 lb weights. Those little modifications really made it a challenge!

I was so SORE from the Pinterest workout that I couldn't go full blast! Ugh!
3 mile walk without children. Woohoo!!
So last night I made a new recipe, you guessed it - from Pinterest. I think I need a Pintervention...
Here is my review (I know you are on the edge of your seat):
This is what I chose:
Doesn't that look pretty?
So, it is basically lemons sliced, salmon on top, butter, and the spices you choose all wrapped up in aluminum foil. I used minced garlic, pepper and Season All. The instructions say to cook this at 300° for 25 minutes. This does not work, ya'll. I had to put it back in the oven two more times. I'm going to guess that 450° for about 20 minutes would have been perfect. It turned out good. By the time we finally sat down we were tired, cranky and hungry. I think I will make this again but definitely will not be cooking it at 300°.
My halfway finished product (I think it went back in the oven one more time):
Our side was this fabulous tomato and corn salad I found in Good Housekeeping
The recipe is as follows:
2lbs of cherry tomatoes sliced
6 ears of corn
4 jalapenos (Good Housekeeping says to put them in raw, but my fab husband removes the seeds and cooks them in olive oil for me)
3 green onions (I forgot to buy them this time. The salad was still good, but we could definitely tell they were missing. I also prefer more than 3.)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
This makes a ton, but it is good left over. I didn't think it would be because of the tomatoes, but it is! We will be having it again tonight.
That's all for now!
