I don't even like spicy food. So why have I been scouring pinterest looking for recipes in which to use my new favorite condiment - sriracha?

I've already made this chicken salad...and it was pretty damn good.
New recipes on my list of things I want to make...

Sriracha-Miso Salmon
Mix 2 tsp. Sriracha, 1 Tbsp. miso, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread on four 4-oz. salmon fillets. Broil until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Sriracha Egg Salad
Mix chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, pickle relish, and Sriracha.

Sriracha Brussels Sprouts
Mix Sriracha, honey, and fresh lime juice to taste; drizzle over roasted brussels sprouts.

And it's a good thing all of these recipes are relatively healthy...bc I haven't run in a week! A week! What is wrong with me? The days just got away from me, there were other things going on or it was just too hot. So. Many. Excuses. I keep talking about how I want to get faster and run longer and I'm not running at all.

New Goals - Lean

So I finally went back for my follow up body fat test last Tuesday. I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I had lost some weight and I could see more muscle definition, but I wasn't sure. I told myself I would be happy with anything under 30% since I was 33.8 the last time I went.

So of course in the lead up to the test I had like 5 cheat meals. Insert eye roll here. Saturday was margaritas and Mexican for dinner. Sunday was brunch and champagne and pizza. And then Monday was more Mexican bc of Sunday. Whoops.

Clearly I had to run Tuesday morning before the test. hahahaha

Then at lunch time I headed over to visit Heather. The got a new machine that's so supposed to be even more accurate than the BodPod and you don't even have to strip down lol.

So my new results were:
Weight - 147.6
Body Fat - 27.8

So I lost 6.3 pounds and 6% body fat. Total time elapsed between tests was 16 weeks.

This places me in the moderately lean category for women.

Moving forward, I think …
