Welcome to Snarkfest

Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 24 and 21. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!

10 lbs GONE!

Hey Snarklings. Those of you who know me know I don't fall for shit. Well, maybe that's not 100% true. I do tend to hope for the best in people and sadly, I've been burned over and over. BUT, when it comes to buying into a trend or a GREATEST NEW THING, I tend to yawn and move on with my busy day. I'm skeptical and I don't hop on many bandwagons. I don't normally believe it when people tell me "Oh you HAVE to try this, it's the BEST way to (insert goal here, like grow hair, meet your future mate, lose weight, have fuller, richer hair, get bigger boobs, blah blah blah).

That being said, I WILL tell you that I've lost 10 lbs just this week. "But Snarky! How in the world did you do that???" Well keep your pants on, there, slick, I'm about to tell you. My friend Kate is a rep for a product called Isagenix. She's had a lot of success on this plan, losing 38 lbs in 3 months. And when she first told me about it, I was naturally skeptical. Except for the fact that so is Kate. She's just as skeptical as I am. We've both been around the block a few times and we don't really believe a lot of hype and hoopla (hoopla doesn't really have anything to do with this post, I just like saying it. Hoopla! Hoopla!) Ok, shut up Snarky. Get back to it.

So after meeting my goal with my DietBet last month, (and winning back my bet PLUS $6.66!! And is the irony lost on ANYBODY about that number??) I decided that I wanted a bit of a kick-start to really help me get back on track with losing weight. So I called Kate and said "look, how about we work out a deal? My money's really tight these days and I don't have extra cash to buy a month's worth of the Isagenix product, but could we work out a deal?" So if you want to say that this is a sponsored post, then fine, it's a sponsored post. But it's also a post that tells you that this product really does work for me. And NO ONE was more surprised than I was. Trust me. I was totally ready to lose like, 2 lbs and then be all like, 'oooh this is stupid, the scale's not moving and I'm hungry and wah wah wah' but I'm not. The scale IS moving. It's moving down by 10 lbs since I started it last Monday.

I had lost about 6 or so lbs in the month that I did the DietBet. Not much over the course of a month. So imagine how pleased I was when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw that I had lost more in this one week than the whole month that I was just watching my calories and trying to exercise. It's an easy plan where you're putting something in your stomach every 2 hours throughout the day. A shake in the morning, mid-morning snack, either a lunch shake or a healthy lunch, snacks at 2:00 then 4:00. If you had a shake for lunch, you have a healthy dinner. If you went the healthy lunch option, have your shake for dinner, then a snack 2 hours later and I swear to God you are NOT starving or hungry all day.

The shake also comes with a 'Greens' powder to mix in and this thing is chock full of all sorts of healthy shit. I'm telling you, if I wasn't on the program myself, I'd tell you I was full of shit. But I swear, so far, it's working for me. I'm not ready to chew off my own arm, I have not stabbed anyone in the eye with a spork, and it's been a really easy plan to follow. I've made chicken, quinoa, roasted veggies, and several other healthy meals for my family this week so they're happy too.

I will keep you posted as I complete the next 3 weeks of this program, but I'm hopeful that before the end of this month I can drop another 10 lbs. We shall see. At the end of this month I'll be posting some pics in my Snarkfat page of this blog so you can see for yourself that it seems to be making a dent in my body! If you have any questions, leave them in the comments. If you're interested in learning if this is for you, email me and I'll put you in touch with Kate. Just go to my "Contact Me" page for my info.

Stay tuned, Snarklings!
