I had been contemplating making turkey chili for a couple weeks now. It’s officially the middle of September and Autumn is right around the corner, I thought this would be a good time to make it. (Autumn is also my favorite season due to the weather and fashion mostly) I forgot to take the beans out the night beforehand. I took them out to soak around 8am. I started cooking them around 4:30pm and finished a little after 10:30pm or so. I let it cool off for a while. By this time I was getting pretty tired.
The beans turned out really well!! I have cooked chili before, but sometimes it does not come out exactly how I would want. I also like my foods quite spicy at times. My significant other does not like food as spicy as I do. I often have to watch how much curry, cayenne, jalapenos, etc I put on foods.
Since I decided to cook this on a Thursday….I can enjoy my chili over weekend and relax. I don’t plan on doing much.
I skipped my workout today. My body hurts and I just wanted to rest. I’m pretty fit to begin with, but started working out consistently several months ago. My goal is to tone a bit more. I’ve recently been coming to terms with my body type. I am a very small, short, petite woman, with a small frame, yet with tiny curves that fit me. I am basically kinda tiny as some describe me. I realize that I am naturally a small person. I may not get huge legs from working out. This is fine with me…..my body goal is my best body. I will not ever look the way another person looks. I think sometimes we trick ourselves into believing certain type of exercises will give us an a** like Serena Williams. Just because you do a few squats your a** is not gonna just blow up and expand!! When I was younger people made fun of how small I was. Now, many people compliment me on my shape as an adult. There are still some that try to make me feel a certain way, but it does not bother me at this point in life. I do feel my metabolism slowing down now. I have to work a little harder than I use to after too many beers, which I don’t drink as much anymore.
