Non-Weigh-In Wednesday / Recipe

First things first...I have 100 followers!! Holy crap, how did that happen. I love all of you and the support you provide every day!!!

As the title says this is a non-weigh-in Wednesday. For the month of August I decided to not weigh myself at all! So instead I will take this day to be accountable to you. I am posting this calender to show you what days I have worked out and what days I have stayed away from the evil scale. I plan to do 22 days at the gym this month. So far I am 3 for 3 at the gym ( I know I am going tonight because I have a trainer appt.) Yesterday was when I decided to start the no weigh thing so I started today. Red is for the a successful scale day and green is for a successful gym day!
Ok so I had people asking me about my Taco recipe so here it is:
  • 1.25lb ground turkey 99%
  • 1 12oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 12oz can black beans
  • 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • chopped onion to taste ( i like allot so I put in half an onion)
  • 1 red pepper chopped the same size you chop the onion
  • I add 2 packets of taco seasoning because I love allot of flavor
cook the onion and the pepper together till about half way done. then add the turkey, cook 95% of the way. At this point add the chicken broth then the taco seasoning. stir till combined. Drain the tomatoes and the beans and add them in last. they just need to be heated through. I serve it with low fat sour cream! I don't remember the brand I like but it's in the red tub. 232.5 cals and 26.1g of protein in the recipe! I have this recipe dished out for 8 servings. I have never really mesured it out all the way.
It's such a a fast and easy dinner and my hubby loves it to. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)
Happy Hump Day!
