More breakfast muffins were on the menu yesterday!  One of my bosses came in late because he had to go to the DMV, so when he got in I heated one up for him.  I think everyone needs a treat after spending time at the DMV!  He loved them and said it was a sneaky way to get vegetables into a breakfast!

I was happy that when I was getting ready for work yesterday I remembered I had another pair of swim goggles and tossed them in my bag.  Um,  now I remember why they are in the basement, because they sucked ass.  So I ended up doing my water taxi and floaty board swim workout again for 30 minutes.

What you don’t see in most of my pics is my middle – that’s where all the fat I carry goes.  So while I do appreciate the compliments that say I look great, the photos are a bit misleading – I still have about 30 pounds to go to get to my goal weight.

Lunch was the last of the sourdough pizza!  This time with pickled jalapenos – so good!

So once upon a time, Long John Silvers and I were BFFs.  Like 3 times a week BFFs.  I never really ate seafood growing up, but I would eat the chicken planks and the shrimp.  I mean with all that breading and dipping sauce it really could be anything on the inside, but I literally thought I was eating healthy back then by eating the shrimp – I mean, isn’t seafood good for you?!

The best part about getting Long John Silver’s is all those little bits of breading that are in the bottom of the box.  Well, that and that you can have hush puppies too.  I loves me some hush puppies!


So I had Long John Silvers on my brain when I was making dinner last night.  I had shrimp tacos on the menu.  I made a super quick beer batter – this could not be simpler.

  • 1/2 pound peeled deveined shrimp
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 can beer (I used Miller Lite – no way in hell I would waste my Sam Adam’s Cold Snap on a beer batter!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Mix all the batter ingredients together, then toss the shrimp to coat.  It’s going to be a little bit thinner than pancake batter.

I wish these pictures were better, but well, I was hungry – but these were delicious AND I got the little crunchy bits – just like Long John Silver’s!

I have a new app I need to share with you – it’s the perfect app for when you are waiting in line at the deli, stuck at a train crossing – PLOPSICLE!!

My friend Christina’s husband created the app, and I am totally addicted.  You’ll thank me later!

So I took the night off from exercising.  After working a double on Wednesday, I just didn’t have the energy after working yesterday.  I started to beat myself up for it, but then when I was looking at the T-25 exercise chart, I realized that there are two rest days every week, so I decided that Thursday and Friday will be my rest days for T-25.  No more guilt! Open-mouthed smile

This weekend is going to be insane at the restaurant – our opening weekend!   I just hope they don’t give me an 11 table station like they did last Saturday – that was a bit insane.  Big bucks, no whammies!

Happy Friday – make it a great day!
