New Years Resolution: Lose Weight

That has been my New Years Resolution since I’ve had kids…so the past 4 years now. Have I stuck to it or succeeded? Nope. Not even in the littlest bit. However, I think this year will be different. You know why? Probably not, but I’m gonna tell ya!

I subscribe to the Hungry Girl emails. They are, by far, the BEST weight loss type emails ever! Last year I got the Hungry Girl Cookbook, which is one of my favorite cookbooks (gotta try breading your chicken and pork chops with crushed fiber one cereal…Mmm!). After going through her cookbook, I subscribed to her site for her daily emails. She sends some of the best things.

Now why do I think this year will be the year I will stick to my resolution? Because of the email I just got! The mother of all grocery lists! The list that will help me make wise choices while grocery shopping! Want to snag yourself a copy of the list? Well go here and get it!

My favorite location on her site, is the News section. It is jammed packed with very helpful information for everyone! If you think this sounds like a book for you, head over here and choose the place you would like to buy it from. There are links to Borders, Barnes and Noble, etc.

You won’t regret getting this book or signing up for the emails. And remember, next time you are craving breaded chicken, bread it in crushed Fiber One cereal. Not only are you upping your fiber intake, but it tastes good too!

Proof that Nice People DO win!!

I just finished watching The Biggest Loser and as usual, I am BLOWN away at the transformations these people made! Literally blown away. If you haven’t seen the show yet, you may want to stop reading right about now because I don’t want to spoil anything for you.

Throughout the season, I really started to dislike Heba, Vicki, and Brady. Heba was annoying every time she opened her mouth. Vicki too. She was so mean and conniving…always talking about how she was “playing the game” etc. And don’t even get me started about the little lie that her husband or should I say, Vicki, cooked up about Phillip talking crap about Heba. How stupid do they think the viewers are? Had something like that gone down, you better believe they would have aired it.

So yea, anyway…last week when Ed pleaded with America to vote for Heba to be in the finale, I just knew that was going to backfire and everyone was going to vote for him out of spite. I just loved with Allison Sweeny said “it’s a landslide…”! But then I began to worry that Heba would win the at home (which she did) and then Ed would go and win the actual Biggest Loser title…but thankfully, that didn’t happen.

I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t help but laugh when Vicki almost fell trying to walk in her pair of hooker heels. Why wear shoes that you can’t even walk in? And then when Michelle came out and Bob went to help her, she kind of had this look like “um…I wore shoes I can walk i, but thanks”!

I was so beyond happy to see Michelle win. I liked her from day one on the show. I thought, after Coleen, Michelle was the nicest person on that show. But beyond nice, she gave it 110% week in and week out. Yes she thought about going home, but that had a lot to do with the psychological issues she was dealing with and once she overcame those…it was smooth sailing for her.

I wish I could go on this show so bad. And I would definitely want Bob to be my trainer 😉
