Well, today was a blah day. I wasn't in a bad mood or a good mood, just quiet. I got out of work on time, which was nice.
ON a diet note: I am right on track. I am changing my dinners to the veggie chili to eat the rest of it up. I also put the recipe below for anyone who is interested. It came off of the sparkpeople meal planner. Honestly, I cannot wait to get my new fridge here so that it is not so cluttered and I can find all my food!
ON an exercise note: I did exercise today. I only had one part that I had to change the position for. It was for my arm. Lifting the weights in my left arm did not work so well. However, I did get a good workout in!
Vegetarian Chili RECIPE
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium carrots, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 15 oz. cans black beans, drained
1 pinch cayenne pepper, chili powder, or chili seasoning mix
1 tablespoon parsley, freshly chopped
1. Saute the onions and garlic in oil in a large sauce pan.
2. Add carrots, tomatoes, herbs, spices, and beans.
3. Cover (to retain moisture) and cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.
