Man, that Dirty 30 Extreme is a tough workout. I will say that this is the best that I’ve done with it so far – but those shoulder exercises are a killer in the beginning. For the curtsy lunges, I must admit that I had to drop back to my baby weights. I did get a bonus work out in – I took my son to his Tae Kwon Do class – so I did 30 minutes on the elliptical while waiting for him.
Breakfast and lunch were basically the usual. Yogurt, apples and cinnamon and then a ham and cheese sandwich on a flatout with some baby carrots and cucumber slices. I had my Shakeo in the afternoon – just because it worked out that way.
For dinner, my son actually requested salmon (it makes me so happy when they ask for real food instead of usual kid-fare…). I made it his favorite way – with a miso glaze.
I make it slightly differently. I do the whole thing under the broiler. I don’t bother with the oil since I foil line a pan – and I don’t care if the skin sticks because we peel the salmon off of it anyway. The sauce is a little runny – so I combat this 2 ways. I sort of press the foil up against the fish so that the sauce can’t run down onto the pan too much. I also put about half the sauce on, broil it, then put the other half on. I like it to get more caramelized than it looks in the pic above. It’s delicious!! I severed it with some rice and steamed green beans.
Oh – and please try to buy wild caught fish instead of farm raised. I won’t bore you with all the details on why its better, but go look for yourself. With just a little research, you will never want to eat farm raised fish again. And don’t get me started on that GMO salmon…gross.
