What a great, active few days I've had. Thursday my daughter's dance class was on break so I had the opportunity to take a class I normally don't. Did a Abs, Butt & Thighs class, followed by a 30 min Abs Only class. It was good and I like the instructor, but I found her quite a bit easier than the instructor I have for my other classes. After 30 min of abs I should have been near tears and I wasn't even close.

Friday I took my usual fitness class. Saturday I took my daughter to the mall to meet a friend. While there I hoofed it around the mall for a few hours ... and maybe, just maybe ducked into a couple of stores. I ended up buying a fitted blouse that's just a teensy bit tight and I can't wait to have it fit perfect. Plus I bought some cute black capris. I had bought the same style from this store last year, but in white. I grabbed a smaller size than I thought I'd need and ... they fit - really good. I tried on the size smaller but it was a big jump and I didn't want to waste money so I got the ones that fit good. Got home and compared them to the one I bought last year and WAHOO there were a size smaller - YEAH!!!! After I got home I tackled some of the stalls (way overdo and gross). That is most definitely a tough workout.

Sunday I met up with the ladies for the most beautiful run I've had in a long time. It was fairly cold, but the sun was shining and the trails were packed with active people. We're guessing we ran about 12 Km and other than stoping for about 30 seconds to tie my jacket around my waist, I ran the whole thing. One of my goals this year is to run the entire thing without stopping. Had I remembered that I wouldn't have stopped to take off my jacket. HAHHAA.

Last night I tried something new ... TILAPIA .. and I'm in LOVE ♥♥♥. I'd heard before it was good, but hadn't actually tried it. If you're not a really fishy lover this is the fish for you. I didn't even notice a fish smell and my kids didn't saw ewww while it was cooking. I topped it with a tsp of olive oil, cayenne pepper, black pepper, lemon juice and about a tablespoon of cornflake crumbs. Then a bit more lemon juice upon serving. It was SO good and I plan to have it again this week.

I'm planning to do another run, a 10K, on April 5th. My parents have been down south all winter and should be back by then and this run is in their hometown - so it makes a great excuse for a visit, and keeps me on track. I'm very much looking forward to it!!!

Talapia is one of the few fish I'll eat. I don't like a real fishy fish, and generally stick to haddock (which is something I can't get around here at a decent price)... so I was very glad to find talapia!

I love tilapia! It's such a versatile fish. I have a recipe I'm going to try tomorrow. I'm glad you found one that you like.
