Burn 'em up, Move 'em out, Rawhide!

So as some of you may know I've had a difficult time losing my baby weight. Ive tried a few things and finally happened upon something that's been working for me. My friend Aubrey suggested a diet she had done some years ago. It's called The New Beverly Hills Diet, haha! And guess what, it works. Aside from my canker sores and raw mouth from all the pineapple I've been eating there's not a single down side. :) I've lost 12lbs so far and feel great although I'd like to lose about double that.

Now, what's strange is that as I've been on this diet I've actually renewed my love for cooking. This is strange because I can't even eat or try most of the stuff I've been cooking! For some reason I've been obsessed and pouring myself over recipes, trying and tweaking to Rob's delight. I plan for days all of the fun concoctions I want to create. Soy Glazed Salmon, Chicken Madiera, Sarah's amazing burgers, cookies, spicy Moo Goo Gai Pan, muffins, breads, Submarine pasta, etc. So I thought I post one of Rob's favorites up to now.

I made him a glazed salmon with soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, and brown sugar. Then I made a mango salsa. Topping it off with sesame rice, asparagus, and wonton strips. It was interesting and Rob said it was the best thing I've ever made him.

Me trying to get a good pic of it...this makes it look messy, I'm really not a photographer. :)
The patronizing "mmmmmm" Rob gave me when I asked him to show me how much he liked it.

That's awesome about the weight. Just be careful . . . I read a little bit about that diet and you may be lacking in some important nutrients. But if it works . . . KEEP IT UP!

I may be talking to you more about if when I stop breastfeeding if I don't loose the rest of my baby weight.

PS . . . Your meals sound DELICIOUS!
Let's get together sometime soon for ladies night!

Holy cow! That looks amazing. I hate fish but the picture is so pretty haha. Chris loves fish, so maybe I will brave the smell to make him this. I'm impressed.

I told Seth again the other night that if I don't lose all my baby weight I'm definitely doing the diet as soon as I'm done nursing. It works! You are seriously looking so good and I can't even imagine how hot you'll be by the time you're done with the diet. We should cook together too. I'd love to learn from the pro. :)
