3-Ingredient Tilapia

So… hi there.  Yeah, I’m still here.  Still dangling (God, I hate that word) from the armpit hair of life, holding my breath to avoid the stench of the hideousness that surrounds us.  Yeah, it’s been that kind of week.  Hence the reason why I have not been writing.  Or cooking.  Or cleaning.  Or bathing.

Okay, I’m not that gross, but it has been a rough run on my end.  Coming back from a vacation is always rough,  but I have had a TON on my plate to deal with in virtually every pillar of life.  Let’s take a look at the walking disaster that is me:

  • physical self – I sprained my wrist and banged up both knees falling, because I suck at walking
  • family and friends- who doesn’t have difficult situations going on with their loved ones, emirite?
  • work- ohemgee this week…. nuf said.  I can’t even.
  • dating and relationships- actually, this one’s pretty steady, but given the other three crumbling, you can see how I can be less than pleasant to cuddle up to.

I was at my breaking point.  So many small things built up to one explosive mess within myself and all I could do was spin.  Then, I caught a cold.  I thought I would officially spiral into a full-on depression, but it actually is helping me get over all of the little annoyances.  I even cooked myself something, which always makes me feel better and more useful.  I have to remember that:  when I’m feeling awful, cook.

Since I knew my workouts would suffer, I wanted to make something low-cal.  I reached into the freezer for some frozen tilapia, and made a super simple, wholesome baked fish.  Well on my way to recovery.
