What is “motivation”? The dictionary says that motivation is the act of being motivated. So what is being motivated anyway??? I think we all have a different answer to this question, because different things motivate each and everyone of us! To motivate, the dictionary says, is to provide with motive/motives; incite; impel. So, should the question really be what are you striving for???? Once you know what you are striving for it becomes clearer to us as to what our motive/motives are. I am a strong believer that once you are motivated by your goal and you dedicated yourself to it, and are committed to it, then you must make good-habits to reach success! I write down my motives a lot of the time! I speak to others about them so that I hold myself better accountable to my committment! You motive/motives can change, but your goal/committment should not!
One of my “motivations” so to speak is the picture in the right hand corner! She looks amazing and looks to be very healthy too! Looking at her muscle and physique help me strive toward my own goal! What is your goal??? How do you strive and reach for it???
Salmon Burritos with Chili-Roasted Vegetables
Recommended by Tony Horton
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. lime juice
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1-1/2 tsp. ground dried chilies
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 pound salmon fillet (about 1 inch thick), boned
1 large sweet potato, peeled, quartered lengthwise, then sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 zucchini, halved lengthwise, then sliced 1/3 inch thick
1 red onion, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1/4-inch thick wedges
1 fresh poblano chili, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
6 whole whole wheat flour tortillas (10 inches wide), warmed
Chopped cilantro, shredded cabbage, low-fat sour cream, and lime wedges
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two 12-by-15-inch baking pans with aluminum foil. Whisk the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, ground dried chili, and salt together. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Brush flesh side of salmon with 2 tablespoons of the lime-chili marinade. Set aside. In a medium bowl, toss the sweet potato, zucchini, onion, and chili with the remaining marinade. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on the baking pans. Roast vegetables for 10 minutes, then add salmon (skin-side down) to one pan and return to oven. Continue roasting until potatoes are tender when pierced and salmon is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove skin from salmon and slice fillet into six equal portions. Spoon vegetable mixture equally onto warm tortillas. Top each with a piece of salmon and a little cilantro, cabbage, and sour cream*. Fold tortilla over the filling. Serve with more sour cream and the lime wedges. Makes 6 servings.
