I love salmon! I rarely think about buying it though. I think it's a great fish to get kids started on because to me it smells less fishy, and it has a firmer texture.

I know a colleague of mine who is a triathlete, has all sorts of great recipes on her fitness blog, including some yummy breakfast recipes:

Maybe there is a lower cal version of a banana type breakfast?

So Carrie - did you figure out what to do with the spaghetti squash and the cabbage yet? Great job on getting the salmon and experimenting with it! How did you do over the weekend by knowing in advance how you wanted to break up your calories?

Miranda - the salmon was really yummy! I'm going to try cod this week and hope for the same great results...lol. Caden is a pretty easy eater (so thankful!) so it's nice not having to worry about meals around him. He's actually an easier eater than Dh...

I'll have to check out that blog! This weekend I did substitute 1/2 the oil in the waffle recipe for applesauce (lowered the cals per waffle by 50!) and they still turned out great. I have a homemade raspberry/elderberry syrup that we use which is super yummy also... It's not as bad as it could be but it's still not the best.

I did make the spaghetti squash - just baked it and then sauteed it in a bit of butter and garlic.

Carrie way to go on the hill training!! I'm sure you guys will be ready to go! Let me know how you cook the cod - that's a fish I rarely use, but don't mind it at all!

As for the weather for your race - don't overdress!! I did that the first year we did our resolution run on January 1, and it's awful if you get too hot. I do like having something over my ears, and light gloves so my hands don't freeze, but the trick is to layer, and not too many layers. Probably one less than you think you need!
