Dessert First & a Recipe

Ok. I seriously relish the feeling of being clean, having freshly washed hair and clothed in soft pj's.

It seriously makes me happy-yyy.


So! Hello everyone!

In case you are wondering, I am totally sitting here clean in my pink old navy pj pants and one of hubbys t-shirts.  He is lucky it's not his boxers...I am a fan of them too ;)

I just had the most ama-zeeeing desert so lets start with that shall we?

Skinny cow ice cream-150 cals. Whip cream squirts & caramel drizzle!
So yummy.
I ate it slowly with a spoon.
In a perfect world I would totally sleep in all day tommorow and watch Christmas movies and drink hot cocoa. 
Doesnt that sound like an amazing plan?
Im in that kind of "Christmas mood" :)
Anyways I know yall are so suprised that breakfast finally doesnt consist of orange peanut butter crackers.
toast 140 cals/peaches 50 cals/peanut butter 75 cals
Then lunch was something I am sure you are all sick of seeing by now!
Cowboy Chicken Chilli (2.5 servings) 117 cals per cup with cheese=28 cals and tortilla chips=140 cals
Sheila just for you my dear, here is the recipe!
4 cups water
1 small can of mushrooms pieces/stems chopped and drained
1 small onion
brummel and brown yogurt (unless you opt out but its good to sautee mushrooms/onion in)
one can corn (drain)
one can light red kidney beans (drained)
one can rotel (not drained)
one can diced tomatoes (not drained)
one large can of chicken drained and shreadded with a fork.
One cup white rice COOKED already
Cumin (1 tbsp)
chilli powder (1/2 tbsp)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Sautee diced onion and mushroom pieces
2. Add in shreadded chicken and all other indgredients.
3. Add in your spices and water.
4. Heat and Eat.
Make your cowboy happy ;)
If yall make it let me know! Its so good.
So then I came home and MAY or MAY NOT have had a peanut butter bar.
150 cals=MAYBE :)
Then headed to the gym for one sweaty our of Zumba while my jillian-ish instructor who is a little ball of energy, proceded to sweat the daylights out of us.
It will find me soon. 
Then I came back home and dragged my sweaty tired self to the shower and then made dinner.
I say made but Costco did all the hard work ;)
Salmon burger from costco=170 cals (hot sauce drizzled on) brown rice=155 cals and mixed veggies=45 cals per cup
Besides the fact I found out my car has to have around $500 worth of repairs done saturday, today was a pretty good day...:)
Ok so tommorow is Friday, then we have Saturday, I am supposed to be getting my hair done then (unless i opt out due to MONEY woes, ayyye) and we have the Christmas festival where they turn on the lights in our little town!!! Then sunday is the wedding dress challenge & my anniversary and i think we are going to see twilight!!!
Stay tuned my loves!!!
