A failed dinner and trying something new.

Am I the only one who stresses over what to title their blog posts? *sigh*

I made fish tacos last night, and they were gross. I tried making mahi mahi, and I almost barfed when I took it out of the bag and saw it still had skin on one side. Ew. I scraped the meat off the skin when it was mostly cooked, and then I threw in the sauce. And, true to form, I made up two of them for my plate but only managed to get through part of one. My eyes are still way bigger than my stomach. Never has that saying been more true than since I got banded. Am I right or am I right? I made shrimp for the hub's tacos, and he liked his, so I guess it was worth it. 

Yesterday I wasn't feeling too great about some of my food choices. I had some junior mints in the afternoon and a muffin for breakfast. But, the scale was down a pound overnight! Whee! I have my gym bag in my car, so I'm ready for this afternoon. I'm going to try one of the classes they offer. It's called On the Ball -- resistance training and ab work using the exercise ball. Should be cool. I will report tomorrow!

Woohoo for down a pound!

And I definitely stress over what to name my posts. It's like you feel like you have to have AWESOME titles to lure people in. But honestly, yours could say "piss and shit" and I'd read.

Sounds like a fun class! I'm very limited in my fish-cooking skills and the rest of the family doesn't like seafood so I tend to stay away from cooking it at home. Sounds like it turned out alright though...at least for hubs.

Hope that your class goes well. I'm not good with fish, I try but often fail!

You lost me when you put fish in a taco. That is so not cool Maria!!!

I live in Texas...they put every damn thing in a taco here. Drives me freaking crazy!!!

Congrats on the 1 pound. Enjoy your class tonight.

Yay sounds like fun! Fish tacos are good with tilapia. I have made them for Henry and I before and we both liked them. :)

I have the same problem with titles :o)

I am not sure about those fish tacos though.......

Beth Ann said...

I totally make up stupid titles after I've written my posts. I hate that part and kind of wish I always just put the date. :)

Great job getting down a pound...

I have a hard time with fish the only time I have ever enjoyed any type of seafood as haddock or shrimp but both were battered and fried... I will try again...

Hope you have fun at the gym
