The treadmill is my ally. During the winter or when the weather is bad, the treadmill is my form of exercise. Even if I’m feeling sluggish, I tell myself, “a little exercise is better than none.” Last night, I ran 2 miles in 18 minutes, 41 seconds. Not blazing speed for you runners, but for me, it’s the furthest and fastest I’ve run in a long time. It’s a small accomplishment on my way to a bigger goal.

One of my other goals is to try new pork recipes. I found one for Thai Pork Pizza on the MN Pork website. Go to, and then click on the icon for Easy Meals in Minutes for Easter and Beyond. This pizza is refreshingly different and pork loin contains less fat that many other pizza toppings. If you get a chance to try it before I do, let me know what you think.
