Finally a Saturday off! I woke up a little early, due to the dogs crying, and had breakfast which was a bowl of Honey Almond Flax Cereal with Almond milk. I love cereal. 3/4 cup has 10gof protein and 11g of fiber!
After Breakfast I made my preworkout shake and packed my protein powder to drink after the gym.
I missed a couple days at the gym this week so I did triceps and legs followed by 20 minutes on the elliptical.

I'm made chili today, yum! We will prob eat it for dinner and all weekend.
I usually just wing it when I make chili depending on what I have in the house. I typically make mine with Laura's Lean ground beef. This was on sale and I had to use it by today.
I browned the meat and added garlic and half of an onion
I love my pampered chef chopper, but Lily hates it. She barks and goes crazy every time I use it!
I also added chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper, oregano, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes. Of course I didn't measure ;)
I put it all in the crock pot while Eric and I ran some errands. I needed some items to make a few things for thanksgiving!
My favorite thing that we bought was honey crisp apples. They are so good.
After much talk we finally stopped at Wendy's to eat. I had a grilled chicken sandwich without the mayo, with iced tea. I also snagged a few french fries from Eric ;) I've eaten pretty good all week so I didn't care.
I really wanted a cupcake from ANYWHERE....But Eric didn't go for that. He's not a sweets person like me. Oh how I love carrot cake!
Next week I will definitely be eating a few treats here and there- within moderation of course.
Later I decided I would eat one of those apples. "I guess I'll just finish it" was my thought when I reached for the almost empty jar of peanut butter. I think I went through the whole thing in one week.
Jackson wanted some too - as he jumped up to my lap.
It was warmer so I took Lily for a walk. Jackson isn't too good with the leash yet.
I also enjoyed a nice cup of hot chocolate
I found this picture:
And it made me want oatmeal immediately. I love breakfast, it is my favorite meal of the day!
