What a great day! Man I don’t know how anyone can live on less then 5 hours of sleep a night. I felt so much more productive and sharp today after a wonderful night of sleep! On my way home from work I had two things on my mind Jillian plus Chili. Chili is on the menu this week and I wanted to make sure I could get a workout in before dinner.

I decided to do Jillian’s 30 minute Shred DVD, level 2! I forgot how HARD her Shred DVD’s is. I struggled doing thrust squats, but I made it!

  • 1 can of white beans
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 can whole tomatoes peeled
  • 1 16 oz package of fresh ground turkey 

Not Pictured Spices:

garlic, cumin, chili pepper, and paprika.

I also made Hubby’s favorite, Honey Cornbread and I added real corn to it!

This recipe is sooooooo easy, just cook meat with spices and then dump all drained cans into a big pot and cook for 15-20 minutes.

Today I did managed to meet my mini goal, random acts of kindness..sharing + serving! It was actually a lot of fun and I am hope that I keep up the habit of serving others over myself!


Speaking of helping others I have to go help my brother with something so I gotta run! I leave you with the most spoiled  DOG ever!
