What Happens in the Biergarten, Stays in the Biergarten

I had a great time last night at dinner with a group of friends at a local German restaurant called "Frau Kemmling Schoolhaus Brewhaus."

There were big silver platters of bready doughy pretzels the size of my head. (had a few bites)

There were numerous bowls of German potato salad passed around. (again, had only a few bites)

There was a HUGE piece of German chocolate cake, which I ate about 3/4 of...yikes!

Yeah, this band is definitely all about "shouldn'ts" and not "cant's"  I shouldn't have eaten all that cake, but I did.  Sweets will always be my weakness.

Before and the aftermath....
There were also lots of good conversations and fun catching up with friends. That's what I try to focus on now when "eating out" is the planned entertainment of the evening.  It's about the company, not the food.

Here is a photo of me from last night in the Biergarten.  I am starting to see that my arms are getting more tone and shape...finally.  All that Jazzercise and Zumba Toning is starting to pay off. 


  1. wow - that sure was some food porn :) You and your arms look spectacular to me ... have a great day !

  2. You look beautiful my friend! And honestly I'm sure occasional food porn is perfectly fine once in a while for someone rocking maintenance as well as you are!!

    Yeah, totally jealous of your arms! So slim and attractive!!

  3. With the amount of working out you do, you have earned that cake and you look amazing. I can totally see the toning in those skinny arms!

  4. That cake is the devil! Lol. But it looks so good and tempting. No wonder you gave in. Sweets and freakin' breads are my weakness. Your arms do look great as well. Well one bad food choice doesn't mean its all over with and you know that. :)

  5. You look so beautiful. Glad you had a fun time and didn't have to worry about food. that is what this is all about. Getting to that place. I can't wait.

  6. You have skinny, bony shoulders!!

  7. Toned my ass...you're getting ripped!!

    And I want that cake.
