BBQ sauce counts!

shrimp lettuce cups & mango salsa

I think Josh strategically forgot to set the alarm for me last night.  Every morning when the alarm goes off, he suggests I skip JM and get back in bed.  I got up at 5 am this morning.  I laid there in bed and contemplated for a second whether I should get up and do the Ripped in 30.  Here were the thoughts running through my head,

Oh my body hurts, maybe I can skip a day and give my body a day to recover. 
Maybe I can do it tonight after Levi goes to bed.
I won't have enough time to do it this morning since I got up late.

I got up and did it.  It's only 30 minutes and I knew I wouldn't do it tonight after Levi goes to bed and I knew I had plenty of time.  I am very proud of myself and patting myself on the back.

For dinner last night, I grilled up some shrimp, made mango salsa and placed them in Boston lettuce.  I am so Korean, I ended up dousing the lettuce cups with Sriracha. 

grill the Shrimp.
Mango salsa with red onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and lime juice
This was before I doused it with Sriracha.

On another note, a group of us at work went out for a BBQ lunch yesterday.  I would have loved to get ribs or brisket but I was a good girl and got chicken instead.  At least that's what I thought.  I weighed myself this morning and to my horror I have gained .2 lbs.  I was trying to make sense of what happened.  Maybe the "couple" tablespoons" of BBQ sauce I dipped my chicken in had more calories than I counted which was ZERO.  Maybe its because for dinner, I had the shrimp lettuce cups you see here, some chicken left over, some veggies and a couple pieces of brisket that I brought home for Josh.  You think you can slide those little bites here and there under the rug, but the scale does not lie.

Oh and remember the Tandoori chicken I was marinating so lovingly?  They were a total disaster.  Maybe I'll post about what went wrong when I figure it out.
