6 days....No Coffee

Or wine.

Or carbs.

Or sugar.

Or Wine.

Oh wait....I said that one already.

Started Dukaning it this morning and so far I'm doing fine.

I decided to drink tea and not coffee for this first 6 days because I can't drink coffee without cream. day three I might be a black coffee convert.  I'll let you know.

Do You Dukan?

I had to make a decision yesterday.

I was making our menu plan and grocery list for the next two weeks and I had to decide if I wanted to try the latest diet that I've never tried before.

Okay....there might be a couple other diets out there that I've never tried.  Jenny Craig being one of them.

My friend is on the Dukan Diet and having great success.  The only problem is....she seems to be miserable.

I'm a glutton for punishment.  So why not!

I'm going to give it a trial run. Three weeks.

At the end of that three weeks I'll decide if I get to cheat on my daughters birthday....and stop.  Or keep going.

The good news is that we're getting closer and closer to spring and then I'll be able to walk outside again.  You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to that!

Kicking My Ass

I'm trying to find little snippets of time to do some exercise.

It's too cold and snowy for me to really get in a good cardio workout but that doesn't mean that I can't be doing some little things to get me on track.

I found this great Daily Butt Workout on the app store and after doing it for only 5 minutes yesterday, my glutes are sore!! 

The good kind of sore.

I love the good kind of sore.....

Saving Money with Walgreens

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I avoid going to the doctor at all costs because I really don't like paying for prescriptions.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid of the doctor and I go if it's necessary.  It seems like the cost of medication keeps going up along with my doctor's co-pay! 

Walgreens is now offering a special discount on their annual membership for the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens.  For just $35 a year, the family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including your spouse, dependents (as long as they're 22 years old or younger) and your pets. If it's just you, an individual  membership is only $20. 

But that's not all!  Included in your membership is savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications, discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic testing supplies.  Added bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services. 

What a great reason to shop at Walgreens.  I know in our house they are the go to place when we have an illness and need even the most basic items!

Support Walgreens and find out more about how they can save your family money by liking Walgreens on Facebook and following Walgreens on Twitter.

I Want It

I'm feeling really motivated and it's because of my gaggle of friends that are supporting me. It's amazing what having a friend kicking your ass (or texting you) everyday can do for you.

Thank you know who you are!


Bachelor Ben NON Drinking Game

I've been creating a 'drinking game' for The Bachelor TV show for several seasons now and it occurred to me last night that I should create a healthy version of the game for people like my friends Impulsive Addict and JennyKate.  They are both on very strick diets and haven't been all!

For this game you will need the following:

  • A Gallon of water
  • A head of celery
  • Two dumbbells  
  • Comfy clothes

Let's get started!

Each time Chris Harrison is on your screen.....Do 15 sit ups.

Each time Ben kisses a piece of celery.

Each time one of the ladies takes a drink of wine/beer/soda.....take a drink of water.

Each time Courtney says winning.....raise your dumbbells over your head 10 times.

Each time someone says *open*, *Journey* or *rest of my life* 10 lunges.

If Courtney gets a downward facing dog.


During the in place.

Addicted To Coke


I'm giving up Coke again.

This time for good.

I'm not even going to substitue the Zero.  

I'm going to switch to water.
