Stretching my taste buds.....

Well, I have decided that I am going to try seafood!!!! crazy! If you know me at all....you know that this is a huge step for Amanda. I don't know what has come over me! I think it is because I have been watching a lot of Food Network and some of the seafood they make looks elegant...not fishy or oceany! yuck! I still will never ever ever try shrimp. I can't get over the look and smell. I still hate the smell of Red Lobster and other similar joints. I was watching Melissa D'Arabian's new show and she made salmon cakes. They looked good and the salmon had other things with it. I think that will be a nice way for me to start out this new food journey I am taking! Hopefully I don't vomit! This is HUGE for me! Ahhhh...I'm so proud of myself. Babysteps though. Babysteps. I went to Nikkie Mosher's wedding shower last night and I said NO to the cake! Whoohoo....Go me! It was a fun shower. I love weddings! I have also been committed to my working out this week. I did Taebo 4 times! Here is something funny, but embarrasing......Sometimes Billy Blanks (taebo) makes me cry! Not out of physical pain, but at the end of his videos he always gives this amazing pep talk. He is also a Christian. Soooooo, after a hard workout his pep talks brings tears to my eyes! hahaha! Truly he is motivational! Oh Goodness. Well, thats about enough of that. Talk to you later! xoxo
