Friday Fun!

First a quick update on diet and workout:
Yesterday I only ate my target Weight Watchers points and didn't use any flex or activity points. Which was really good because my small group had a party and I had to say no to almost everything on the table. I took a bunch of fruit so I could eat that if there was nothing else I could eat there.
I also did another 90 minutes on the treadmill with my heart rate in the target range at least 85 of those minutes. I went 4.7 miles and upped my incline a little.

Well today I get to clean and get my kitchen ready for my meat delivery. My local meat market delivers for seven dollars. No this is not normally cost effective but I make up for it by ordering things in bulk and freezing them. This way I don't have to carry my 40 pound boxes of meat in by myself since my husband is not up during normal business hours.
When the meat gets here I have 80 pounds in chicken leg quarters to to separate for my dog. I feed my German Shepherd on a raw diet. She gets meat, bone and organs and we feed her some veggies too because she likes them but we mostly use the prey model. This costs me about 60-70 dollars for a month and a half of food for the dog.

Then I got a 40 pound box of chicken breast for us humans and I have to separate that. The savings on that from buying Tyson chicken is about half. The Tyson chicken I buy is almost 4 dollars a pound and this big box is about 2 dollars a pound. The bulk chicken can vary in price but it is usually no more that 5 dollars.

So I am waiting for the meat market to call me and let me know when they are coming I don't want to be on the treadmill when they come because I will have to get off and separate the chicken. Well off to clean the kitchen and make a recipe in the crock-pot from my new Weight Watchers cookbook. Have a great day!
