The List...

I had a very good day today. Nothing happened, nothing special, but I just felt "on" all day. You know what? Today was the first day following "the list". I woke up at 6am and when I left for work at 8:15 I had accomplished everything that I wanted to. I came home from work and made dinner and did some time on the Wii Fit while my friend Brian chatted with me. He is injured and couldn't join me, but wanted to get into a routine. It took until now to get my list completed, but I know I will sleep well knowing that everything is done. And no, I don't feel stressed out. I feel just right. For once!

Healthy chili, yum!

Wow this was good. This was a what-i-have-in-the-pantry version of Cook Yourself Thin's turkey chili.

I skipped the cilatro, scallions, and the chipotle pepper. I also skipped the tortilla chips, because it didn't need any garnish. Instead I threw in some hot pepper flakes and used green onions on top.

This was pretty easy to make. I am shocked how good the yogurt was instead of sour cream!

Try this! It was only 355 calories WITH the tortilla chips.
