Recipe: Zucchini Fries

Well, hello, fellow people of the universe.

Last night’s workout was pretty decent. And by decent, I mean SWEATY.

-40 minutes of treadmill intervals

-15 minutes of spin intervals

I walked to and from the gym for the extra (4) calorie burn.


Listened to some new music-some of it is technically old, but I just got around to putting it on my iPod.


Might have overdone it because my left shin/foot has been throbbing like a mother fluffer all day. I also have a bruise there…so I could just be clumsy. I’M TURNING INTO MY MOTHER.

Quick vent sesh: wedding are expensive. Apparently I haven’t been properly conveying how I want my wedding because before I knew it, all the plans were getting way too formal.


That just might happen. And I’m gonna have a candy bouquet instead of $1300 flowers. (i joke..maybe)

For lunch today, I finally whipped up a batch of zucchini fries. I got the craving for them about 2 weeks ago, then Gina posted a recipe yesterday, so I figured it was a sign.

Instead of bread crumbs, I opted to use a recent purchase


I put a handful of those suckers in my new food processor, and BAM!



Chop up the zucchini, dip in egg wash (one egg + one egg white + splash of milk) then roll in crumbs.


Place on sprayed cooking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for around 20 minutes.

Lunch is ready.


(shot ‘a hot sauce for some kick)

I tried staying off my feet all day for my dang leg to feel better-minus the short walk with Layla- so I’m not sure what tonight’s workout will look like. I’m guessing strength.

Fantastic Friday

Well hello there.

This Friday morning has been just as grand as Monday morning.

I got in a quick interval workout at home, watched The Pauly D Project, and took Layla for a hike at Nose Hill Park.

My glutes, quads and Hammies are super sore from yesterday’s burnin’ workout, but this hike really helped. It was a little chilly, but after a few minutes at a brisk pace, I was ready to peel off some layers. We saw lots of deer too. Actually, Layla didn’t…which is good because I would have probably lost my arm once she took off after them.

Another reason why today is good: I am now 5 days clean of sweets. Pretty awesome if you ask me. If I have a craving, I satisfy it with strawbs or mango…sweet, but not stick-to-your-hips sweet. Phew.

3rd reason: Im on my way downtown in a few minutes to get all my paperwork done for the Y then I am meeting with my Wednesday afternoon co-instructor and we are going through a mock workout. I have two different ones planned- we’ll see what she goes for!

4th: I really really really want a pair of these

Like, seriously, I really want them. Talk about a conversation starter.

5th: Since I will be teaching an outdoor bootcamp AND I have been out for long hikes and walks with Layla, I really want to get something that’s easy to carry all my necessities in (phone, keys, chapstick)

I can’t decide between a Spibelt or and Armpocket. Does anybody have either of these? Any input would be really appreciated!

Last, but not least, my new tunes for the week:

(Only two explicit songs! I’m so tame)

And on that note, I am going to whip up a smoothie and hit the road….Jack.
