Good Morning & Welcome to the new PointFiveKorean.com!!
In lieu of Marathon Monday, I thought I’d check in with some quick triumphs from this past week!
Long run of 5 miles in the books!
Four runs were scheduled for this week, but I started feeling the pull and tug of muscles and took Thursday off to rest up for my 5 mile long run on Saturday. I’m so glad I listened to my body, because it was AWESOME and I felt like I could run and run and run!
Here are some things I saw on my run:
Just a lot of corn.
I also saw a tractor — in the corn…
Also, it’s very difficult to film and run – I had to slow way down and that messed with my average speed O_o.
Weighed in at 188.8lbs as my 10-day record low!
My focus has been eating the right foods at the right times. I also had one cheat meal this week — half a pepperoni digorno and I’m not even a little ashamed of it. BOOM PIZZA!
It was worth it.
Totally worth it.
Tried a recipe from Maangchi.com and made it healthier!
Maangchi makes bomb korean food. This recipe for crispy crunchy korean fried chicken is absolutely no exception — the only problem? It’s fried chicken wings.
So I tweaked it a bit — to make it fit better into my healthy-ish diet.
Here’s what I did to tweak it
First, instead of fried chicken wings, I made crispy baked chicken nugget pieces. I cut up chicken breasts into pieces, coated them with lowfat milk, salt, pepper, & garlic powder, then rolled them in cracker crumbs (I was out of bread crumbs and panko would’ve really been so much better).
Then I baked them in the oven at 375 F for about 20 mins. While they baked, I made the sticky sweet spicy sauce straight from Maangchi’s recipe…
Once the sauce was done and the chicken was fully baked, I tossed half the chicken nugget bites into the sticky sauce (for hubby) and left the other half naked for me!
Hubby LOVED them and I didn’t have to make two separate meals! Win WIN!
