Easy Weekday Chili

Hi and Welcome!!!

Today I will be sharing a quick and healthy recipe, a super easy Turkey Chili.  Read below for the recipe.

Turkey Chili

Frozen Fajita Vegetables
Frozen Seasoning Blend
1 lb 93% Lean Ground Turkey
1 16 oz Can Bush's Black Chili Beans
1 16 oz Can Bush's White Chili Beans, drained and rinsed
Spices of your choice
I used tumeric, garlic powder, salt free all purpose seasoning, sea salt, cracked black pepper, garlic flakes and red pepper flakes

 Turn burner to med-high and add a teaspoon of oil of your choice (I used I can't believe it's not butter) to your pan and add veggies, saute until translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook until brown, about 5 to 9 minutes.
Add beans and place burner on medium. Let cook uncovered for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and enjoy!!!

You could add a little fresh green onion and shredded cheese for a little modification.

Meal Prep Sunday

Hi and welcome back!!!

On Sunday I decided to meal prep for the week, I find it easier for me to eat right if I have food prepared.  I'm not really a fan of leftovers so to make sure I didn't get burned out I made three different entrees.  Because I only cook for myself it usually takes one hour or less.  This week I made sauteed shrimp, beef with peppers and stuffed flounder.  For the sides I made steamed spinach, steamed broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes and brown rice.  I alternate between salads and my meals I cooked for lunch and dinner.  I kept my portions pretty small and daily for breakfast I eat turkey bacon or crumbles with egg whites in either  an omelette, scrambled or on a whole grain english muffin with peppers and half an orange.   I eat 5 times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks.  I try to stay hydrated so I make to drink at least a gallon of water daily.  Next time on the blog I will share some of my fave recipes.

New Beginnings

Yesterday I started on my journey to a healthier me, it was truly hard.  I ended up eating chips later on in the day but I am not going to fault myself for any missteps.  Today I did so much better.  I worked out by walking 30 minutes and utilized my place and ran up and doewn the stairs 10 times.  As long as I push through and try everyday I have nothing to feel guilty for.  This journey is not something I plan on taking lightly and everyday I will push myself and hold "me" accountable.

Hi & welcome!

I started this blog to add accountability to myself.  I have almost every year for the 3 years decided to live a more healthy life and somewhere in the middle of the year I fall off.  Well this year I plan on staying healthy and changing my overall lifestyle.  In this blog I will be motivating not only myself but others.   I will be posting healthy recipes, workouts that work for me and people who inspire me.  To up the accountability for myself I will also be adding a before and after picture of myself every month.  If you read this blog I want you to join me.  I would love to showcase other people.  You can email me @ and tag me in your pictures on Instagram using hashtag lolakgetsfit and you might get featured here.
