Eat. Live. Be. Week 3 (Recipe: Recipe Girl Fish Tacos)

Mexican Spice Recipe

I’m going to just get right to business here. The scale was not so nice to me this past Monday for weigh in, and after some of my behavior from this past week, I wouldn’t expect it to be.

I knew when I first posted my weight on my blog, it would be hard putting it all out there. I do have to tell you though, what is even harder is coming back to you all, merely two weeks later, and saying I flubbed up. I had a somewhat stressful week, and like I do when I’m stressed, I ate. In fact, if you can jump in here and make me feel a little better by at least admitting that my logic is somewhat typical, I’d appreciate it. Here’s the deal…

I had a weak moment at the grocery store this past Tuesday and purchased a bag of Cookies & Cream Hershey’s Kisses. On Wednesday, I opened up the package and had one little kiss. Then I had two… then I had three, four and five. Finally, I realized that I cannot trust myself to have Cookies & Cream Hershey’s Kisses in my house and since I had already screwed up, I decided I’d better get rid of the Hershey’s Kisses. So, I did what any sane person trying to watch their weight would do. I spent the day eating the WHOLE package of Hershey’s Kisses!! I mean, if I was going to screw up, I might as well just go all out in one day, get rid of temptation all together so that the rest of the week those Hershey’s Kisses wouldn’t be calling my name. Great logic, right?

So, I’m back on the wagon again. Thank goodness I’ve been keeping up on my exercise as that is the one and only thing that kept the scale from tipping even further up! This week, so far so good and I plan to keep it that way. Hopefully you’ll hear cheers from me next Monday as I step on the scale again. For anyone keeping track, I am up .9 from 178.1 last week, which isn’t horrible, but still… My Eat. Live. Be friends did much better than I did this week! Make sure to check out the Eat. Live. Be Facebook page to see their updates.

Finally, I promised you all this wouldn’t turn into a diet blog, so because of that I’m going to go to extremes and share with you a recipe that convinced me to go out and buy a deep fryer. I’ve never owned a deep fryer, but after Rachelle from the blog “Mommy? I’m Hungry” shared with me on the Dine & Dish Facebook page that her favorite fish taco recipe was this one from Recipe Girl, I knew I had to try it. And try it, I did… 5 times since the first time in mid-December. I haven’t had it since joining Weight Watchers, but I think I’m going to have to build in a splurge day sometime in the next month to have these again… they are so good! Head over to Recipe Girl’s site to find the recipe for Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Creamy Baja Sauce. If you are looking for a good All Purpose Mexican Seasoning recipe to use for her delicious Fish Tacos, this is the recipe Rachelle turned me onto for that as well. Enjoy!
