My little sister is a vile temptress. She sits on the couch and says things like "I want ice cream" and "we should go out to dinner, you already cooked one meal today" and "let's make raspberry lemonade bars". They were really, btw, and I ate two and brought them to work. They are gone now.
Fortunately, that's only on the weekend, because we're working during the week, so it's all home-cooked healthy goodness. Still, it's just too easy with her and Daddy's credit card nearby.
I ran this morning, three 15 minute segments. The first two were great, and the last one a bit tough. It has been super humid out, which is killing me, but at least there was a cool breeze at 7am. I'm planning on doing turbulence training tonight as I did Mayhem last night. I also fasted today, little sister or not. That went well as usual.
A bunch of you have asked about my chili, so even though I didn't measure, here's what went into it:
Ground turkey, a can of diced tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, kale, corn, green beans, kidney beans, black beans, white beans, diced zucchini and summer squash, fresh cilantro, a bunch of cumin, a dash of cayenne. It sat in the crockpot for 6 hours, then I topped with lowfat cheese and sour cream.
Tonight, I made cajun ham and rice and beans. In there was a variety of cooking greens from my farm share, a diced hamsteak, diced red and yellow peppers, corn, green beans, kidney beans, wild rice, garlic and onion powder, cajun seasoning, and topped with cheddar cheese.
Today is Motivational Monday! Here is a quote for everyone like me who got way off track this weekend (we might have made Donkey Kong themed sugar cookies):
You donít need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating. -Barbara Sher
Okay. I am off to get my heart rate up for 20min or so. How about you?
Onward and upward!
