o   2 t canola oil

o   1 t cumin

o   1 t dried oregano

o   1 t chili powder

o   1/4 t salt

o   freshly ground black pepper

o   1/3 cup yellow mustard

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place pork on a baking sheet and rub with oil, spices, salt, and pepper. Roast until internal temperature reaches 155°F on a meat thermometer, about 20 minutes; cool. Stir together mustard, relish, and shallot. (You can refrigerate the pork and sauce for up to 2 days.)

Lunges With a Dumbell

Click the photo to see the site we learned this exercise from.


Stand with dumbbells grasped to sides.


Lunge forward with first leg. Land on heel then forefoot.
Lower your body by flexing knee and hip of front leg until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor.
Return to original standing position by forcibly extending hip and knee of forward leg.
Repeat by alternating lunge with opposite leg.

Don’t forget that you can never push your knee past your ankle while doing lunges or you will damage your body!
