Shrimp Tacos

Hello all!! My husband and I are back on the weightloss wagon. He is down 10lbs and I am down almost 5, I have lost an entire 1.5 inch off my waist!

We are mainly focusing on our diet, “abs are made in the kitchen” and I am doing some strength training at least 5 days a week.

We are doing a low carb, not a no carb diet. We have had A LOT of salmon and broccoli these last 4 weeks! So I have been looking for something new to try and I found…. SHRIMP TACOS!!!

In total this meal is less than 350 calories

You get 4 of these bad boys!

So I started with a large bag of raw shrimp

I took this picture in the freezer… cloudy

I made homemade taco seasoning with salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder and garlic powder. For a kick we added this habanero lime seasoning

It’s got a bite!

I diced up half a head of green and purple cabbage and I covered them in fresh lime juice. It was a salsa of sorts. For the sauce my husband mixed up mayo and sriracha. We only had miracle whip, I would not recommend it… it tasted weird and watery; but spicy!

You get 4 of these!!

Now just piece them together! Some salsa, 4 shrimp and sauce on each tortilla. It is a delicious, easy and filling meal.

I hope you like the recipe! Do you have any that you love???

Monday and weightloss

How was your Monday?? I spilled coffee on a book I’m reading about cleaning my house….

I am down 6lbs since Sept 24. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but for me it’s great! To gain weight all I have to do is breathe… to lose weight I need to make sacrifices to the Gods.

I did the free two week trial of Noom. Noom is a weightloss plan, there is an app. It is very involved, but basically it’s counting calories. They do have daily lessons that help you get into the psychology of losing weight and it is pretty useful info. If that is something that you think you need check out their website.

But I didn’t continue with them after the trial, I did lose 2lbs a week like they said, but I can count calories without a lesson.

So I am getting through my day on 1400 calories, which should be about 1.5lbs lost a week. It took getting used to, having that amount of calories in one day. I got fat because I ate ALL the calories, lol. There were days when I was dizzy and not feeling great but it has evened out, I can go to sleep without eating all of those calories and feel fine.

I am not working out right now, I am concentrating on my food intake right now. I know there are those who do both, but I know me best! I am wearing my FitBit and getting in as many steps as possible each day. I have even started watching tv while pacing.

All together I feel great and I am hoping that I can keep it up. In a couple of months I’ll start walking again and slowly build up the exercise routine.

How was your day? Do you have anything exciting planned for this week??
