    I can definitely understand the frustration with an injury when you want to work out. I think you’re doing a great job listening to your body. Just make sure you give it enough rest before you try again. It’s too funny about your kitty! My kitties run and hide from smelly things! LOL!

    I didn’t make an resolutions besides to keep on doing what’s i’m doing, and so far that’s still working out for me. 🙂

    Good Luck!

      It was is very frustrating. I was feeling pretty low about my knee last night. (Hence the ice cream lol).

    Haha, I do the ice cream in a ramekin trick, too. I love it!

    Also, one of our cats is seriously attracted to anything that smells like chemicals–soap, carpet cleaner, lotion, plastic shopping bags. I don’t know what it is.

    Also also, I’m not going to have time for a full workout tomorrow because I’m traveling, but I think I will be able to squeeze in the Ab Burner. Love it!

      My abs are SORE today!! The Ab Burner works well. I’m happy with the App!

      My cats are so weird. ‘Nuff said. 😉

    hahaha how funny about fat kitty!! And I agree – fresh citrus makes such a different with fish! If you’re looking to change it up, you can add fresh orange and/or lime slices in addition to or instead of the lemon. Its so good you barely need any seasoning besides salt and pepper!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Oh that’s a great idea! I will definitely try the oranges next time!

      What about grapefruit? Too weird?

    I know my sister cooks her salmon this way too (with real lemon). I haven’t tried it but will now, that looks good! That’s some good calorie burning your doing. I like the idea of maybe only eating half of those calories. It should get you to 140 and you can see how that feels. Sorry about the knee, hope it heals soon. You’re inspiring, no doubt about it.

      Thank you for reading Tamm. I’m glad I can inspire people. 🙂

    Um, wow, the icecream looks sooo soo soo good, I WANT!! 🙂
