Mindset has shifted

It was a good day today. I stayed on track with healthy eating and exercised! My daughter and I did Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred day 1. I was so impressed with her, she did the whole thing with me!

For breakfast I had non-fat Greek yogurt topped with blueberries and mandarin oranges, flax seed oil and unsweetened wheat berry flake cereal:


After breakfast my girl and I made veggie quinoa chili. I have discovered that if I tell her I am making a You Tube video, she will do anything. So we made a pretend cooking video.

Veggie Quinoa Chili in the Crockpot:

Leftover tomato juice (I had about 2 cups)

1 Tablespoon tomato paste

2 cups chicken stock

1 cup quinoa

2 carrots

2 stalks of celery

half a red onion, diced

1 clove of garlic

Mini peppers, 2 each, red, yellow, and orange, diced

1 zucchini, diced

1 yellow squash, diced

1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed


1 tablespoon chili powder and paprika

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt, oregano and turmeric

A pinch of chili flakes and black pepper

Throw it all in a crockpot and cook until you think it’s done. (I had to add a little water half way through). I make a lot of soups and chilis like this. I just throw in any veggies, beans, a grain, tomato product, broth and seasonings.

For lunch, I enjoyed our creation with watermelon.


For dinner I made a few shrimp in pesto over leftover veggies of broccoli, lentils, spinach and beans and a salad.


And for dessert, another tiny piece of tiramisu:

I feel like my mindset has shifted back to a place of motivation and I thank God! I have been praying for this!
