New Recipe

Chicken and Black Bean Chili

1 to 1 1/2 lb chicken tenderloins, cut in 1/2" pieces
1 cup chopped onion
1 can beans - pinto, white, or small red, drained (15 ounces)
1 can black beans, drained (15 ounces)
1 can stewed tomatoes, Mexican style, (15 ounces)
2 tablespoons chili powder or seasoning mix

In large skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, brown chicken and onion over medium heat. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce to low; simmer for about 20 minutes.Serves 6.

I got this recipe from About.com and it was pretty good. I enjoyed it, but if you are a chili fanatic like my huband, it may not be for you. It is actually more like a stew than a chili. But hey, if it's cold outside, any type of warm soup works for me!

So, tonight I am doing my Couch to 5k Day three. I am looking forward to it. I got on the scale this morning and wasn't happy about what I saw. However, my husband is now out of the 200's! I know I should be happy, but it's hard when men lose the weight a lot faster than you. Yuck.

Well, I just have to stay motivated and not let the sugar attack me anymore.

Confession: I had a Reese's cup last night after making a trip to the gas station.

Cheer: I had all of my 64 ounces of water and I had Subway for lunch!


  1. Dieting with a male partner is so unfair - not only do they lose faster and lose more, but they get to eat more! Whose idea was that?

  2. This sounds very similar to my fave this week and some others as well. I guess we were all in the mood for the same thing...What can I say? Great minds think alike:)

    Thanks for linking up!
