Day 11 - Guess what day it is....


Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike.  What day is it?

It is hump day.  Day 11 after today only 10 more days on this adventure.

For someone who has done poorly on diets in the past this truly is a milestone.  On Monday I told my daughter I was starting week two and she was amazed I made it through the weekend.  In all honesty I amazed myself as well.

I think that it is the short duration of this diet.
As I said the other day.

This is not a lifestyle change.  This is only three weeks.

And now what you've all been waiting for...
Eggplant Chili
Fire roasted tomatoes helped to make this delicious.  
I did add some chili powder and cumin.  
I would make this again. 

And now one of the many reasons I am so happy that I don't work at a 'real' company.
It is the Utah/BYU rivalry game this Saturday.  Three guesses who I'm rooting for and the first two don't count. ;)  At any other company I've worked for I would not even consider wearing a t-shirt to the office.  But it is not a real company and I wear what I wear and they never say anything.  I don't abuse the t-shirt wearing.  I keep it for special occasions, like today.



Go Utes!!

    Way to go with the diet. I always just calorie count.

    1. I don't do well with calorie counting. I'm just following the recipe and trusting Bob.

  2. Well done, Jai! That chili looks yummy. I like a good chili, especially when it starts to get chilly, which for here is like, October/November. :)
