So for the past two weeks, i decided to try a no-carb, no-sugar diet. I was partly inspired by my sister, who just tried the similarly trendy Dukan diet (used by Kate and Pippa Middleton), but also because I liked the challenge (the idea of having my abs show through for the first time in a few years didn't hinder me either). I kind of enjoyed cooking new meals, and these were just some of my dishes.

|a modified version of CPK's Thai Crunch Salad. delicious..|
|This one was unique, but extremely good. A sugar-free, no-carb Chocolate Pecan Torte. It used blended pecans instead of flour.|
|Chipotle Strawberry Tillapia Salad. with red peppers and cilantro dressing.|
Found this on HuffPost today. A 24 yr old Brooklyn girl, Seanna Sharpe, was apparently arrested for performing an aerialist stunt from the top of 300 ft Williamsburg Bridge over East River in New York --without a harness. She told the Wall Street Journal “My goal is to face my fear and to inspire others to face their fears. The first time I did it, I didn’t make it to the top I was so scared. The second time the adrenaline was running high.” So why exactly she was arrested for having balls of iron and being.. . incredibly awesome, has me baffled. But props to Seanna!

Maybe it's just because my parents played this all the time when I was growing up.. but I just downloaded this album, and it's been the number one cd bumping in my stereo so far this summer. upbeat, jivey, and just all-around feel good tunes. one of my favorite albums.
