Did you know that on most diets you are allowed a cheat meal and it won't affect your results greatly? I am so thankful that I get a cheat meal once a week. I did great all day Sat. and packed snacks for the baseball field. Sunday I actually got to spend the whole day with my family. It was perfect and much needed.
Sunday we decided to take the kids bowling. We had a free coupon so off we went. The kids love bowling. After bowling we decided to go to lunch/dinner at islands. Looking at the menu there were a few choices that would have been good but they were all vegetarian and I was in the mood for a burger. I got a mushroom hamburger on a wheat bun. It was delicious. I ate a few fries but they weren't that great so it made not eating them easy. The burger was great and it was the only meal I ate for the day. I had a pear and some dried fruit, nut, but did great to keep my calories low before and after the meal. Cheat for the week done!
So on Friday I was saying how I was going to make trail mix. I did and it is yummy. I got raw cashews, peanuts, organic raisins, and yogurt chips threw them all in a ziplock and done. he kids love it and have eaten more then I have. Shawn even ate it as a snack at the baseball field and was impressed. I think we have a winner.
So my other fun adventure this weekend was making my own dishwasher soap. I heard it was easy and much cheaper to make you own dishwasher soap but was always leery on actually doing it. I went to but some on Friday and decided to buy the ingredients to make my own instead. The box I was going to get was $6.00 I got all of the stuff for mine for $3.00 and it makes twice as much as the $6.00 box. I got a plastic container to store it in and it worked really well. I was surprised.
 So here is the recipe.
equal parts borax and baking soda mix it in a container. Use 2 tablespoons for a load of dishes. Its really tough I know. So if you want to save a little money try it.
Ok well off to get some homework done for the week. The kids both have baseball tonight so figuring out a portable dinner to take or something filling to eat at 4pm to hold us all over for the night.

The Beats Pros were designed to reproduce audio as it was intended to be heard, like studio monitors covering your ears. Put simply, they nailed it Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. It doesnt matter what style of music you like, the Pros sound as good as your source material. Unlike the Beats Studios, the Beats Pros do not have noise cancellation. Why? To more accurately reproduce source material.

Despite this being a logical reduction in features, its actually one of the best improvements of the Beats Pro. Instead of noise cancellation, which oftentimes introduces a background hiss, the Pros isolate you from the outside sound. They do it incredibly well thanks to washable high density foam ear cups Beats by Dre. Even without any audio playing, Beats Pros reduce ambient noise to a minimum Beats by Dr. Dre. Youll still be able to hear tapping and louder noises, but only just. Its like turning the volume knob on the world down from 10 to 2. Audio at even modest levels is enough to almost drown out the outside world completely. This allows you to listen to your music at appropriate and safe levels since the headphones arent competing with much of anything other than your thoughts Beats by dre headphones. And since theres no noise cancellation, you wont have to worry about batteries whatsoever. They may, however, make you want to re-encode all of your music at a higher quality. They may make you go from zero to audiophile in five seconds flat Beats by Dr. Dre.
