So I'm on this diet-the dukan diet-right now and it's killer tough for me. For the first 2-10 days you can only eat protein. No dessert, no bread, no vegetables, just protein.
It's been tough for the past few days: I started on monday and today I decided to make something extremely tasty for a change.
I've been eating a lot of tuna fish, plain grilled chicken, eggs. all pretty boring.
I found some shrimp in the freezer and decided to make a tasty meal.
I ate it all before I thought to take pictures so that's too bad but I'll put the recipe up here so I don't forget.

I took about 9 large shrimp(pre cooked and frozen) and thawed them.
While they were thawing, I mixed equal parts olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl. I think I probably used like 2 tsp of each. Then I added some fresh garlic, and when I say some, I mean A LOT! I've been eating flavorless food the last few days-I've been deprived!!
Then I added some crazy jane's mixed up salt in there as well as a teeny dash of onion powder. I did add a tiny sprinkle of a garlic onion seasoning in there too.
I put the garlic/oil/lemon mixture in a pan on the stove and waited until the garlic was getting cooked, added the shrimp, kept it in there for probably 3-5 minutes, turning occasionally and then VOILA! Delicious meal that fits within the strict guidelines.

I'm very happy right now :)

(I didn't take this picture but I felt I needed to add some color to this post!)

So a few weeks ago I discovered this wonderful website called polyvore.
You can waste HOURS there, trust me, sometimes in class I bring my laptop and get sidetracked making up pretty outfits.
Yesterday, I was longing for cute summer clothes and outfits while I was nannying and the kiddo was sleeping and I came up with such a great idea. I want to buy everything I picked out.
The bright colors make me smile :)
oh, and today is friday. and I get off work in a few minutes. and I have an accounting final tonight... BUMMER.
but I got chinese food delivered for lunch :) and I get paid :)

take it easy

So tonight, as the eagles' song, take it easy(the live version) is playing on my computer, I was thinking about how often I really "take it easy."
I don't do that often.. maybe not ever.
That's something that i'm going to start to work on.
I try to micromanage my life a lot of the time, when I should really be taking it easy.
God has a plan bigger than I could ever imagine and me trying to steer it in the directions I want to is not the brightest idea.

Tonight, I am going to take it easy. It's almost 11pm, so there's not much left to tonight, but it's a start.

I'm going to start with some quality time with my guitar. 

woo hoo!
