Crockpot Turkey Chili and a Tuesday Cardio Circuit

I just wanted to take the chance to thank all of you again for you kind words and prayers about yesterdays post. While I’m still sad and searching for answers, it’s comforting to know that the world is full of good, caring people like all of you 🙂 Your words mean the world to me, so thank you again for that.

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means!


Or maybe you don’t, and in that case, it means another “Week of Workouts” circuit is here!


Today is all about the cardio, getting that heart rate up and blasting calories! So here you have it!

A Week of Workouts

First off, thank you all for your kind words about my earlier post. Your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me.

For right now, I want to stray from that topic, as it has been all that has been on my mind all day, and introduce you guys to something new that I’m going to be doing on the blog!

I am doing a new series of posts that I’ll be calling “A Week of Workouts”. Each week that I do this series, I will be posting a quick workout routine for each day of the week. Each day will focus on a different workout regimen (ie: abs, cardio, legs and butt, arms and back, etc).

So let’s get to it, shall we?

Our dinner at the Silver Coach last night was amazing, but I can’t say that I’m too surprised! I loved the restaurant so much this summer that I knew it would be a hit, and it was!

Naturally, my hot date could not take a serious picture to save his life.

Too Excited For Dinner & Eating Out of Tupperware

Is it weird that I am already excited for today to be over so I can be at dinner tonight? Probably a little. But you need to understand the greatness that is going to be my dinner tonight. It’s beyond measure.

Andy and I went to the Silver Coach for the first time this past summer, along with a big group of my family members for a special occasion when my cousin Jess and her new fiancé Warren were in town.
