There are some vital things you need to do if you’re going to shake up your current situation and make groundbreaking progress on your road to success. If you are convinced that failing (from lack of action) and repeated re-starts are not part of your game plan, then this video is for you…
If McDonald’s once gave me food poisoning, and Taco Bell did twice, then why the heck would I start eating fast food again after so many years? My Tuesday evening schedule is totally bonkers. Matthew and I are running the kids around from 5:30 until 9pm while Gracie has her tumbling lesson and Marcus plays basketball. We can either eat on the run or morph into a family of malnourished Sasquatch.
While I will never re-conform to my previous ways of the greasy burgers and gut-busting extra large sodas, Chick-fil-A is making it possible to enjoy a fast food meal with no guilt, courtesy of their delicious salads. The salads are simply divine. And ya, I do order fries on the side.
My stomachs cry out for the Asian Salad with Avocado Lime dressing (opposed the using the Honey Sesame dressing). It’s a bonus that they put chicken on top. For the first time ever I can go beastmode on my morning workout while actually looking forward to a fast food meal every Tuesday night. Every salad I’ve had there is always fresh. And if you’ve got the calories to spare, I suggest you try the Chick-fil-A Peppermint milkshake at least once. It’s big enough to share. Gracie let me have some…
As for the kids, they do love the Chick-fil-A sammiches. I’m totally okay with that because real meat is being used, not some processed “meat-like product” nonsense.
There are other places you can lurk to grab a salad on the go. I’ve done that plenty but always ended up disappointed. Chick-fil-A is seriously doing that thang riiiight. So go have yourself a salad for goodness sake!
It’s The Ultimate Christmas Present, baby! Grab your Christmas cookies, snuggle up in your blankie and get ‘ta watching this movie. You and your family will absolutely love it.
A Los Angeles junior high girl on the naughty list hatches a plan to steal Santa’s weather-making machine prototype. Her goal is to make it snow in LA so a school snow day can be declared and she’ll have more time to finish her class project. Her best friend is reluctant to go along with the plan, but she does anyway and, as you can imagine, all hell breaks loose; especially when the machine goes haywire and causes an extreme blizzard that threatens to destroy the entire city’s Christmas. Add an annoying younger brother into the mix along with a pissed off Santa Clause and two gigantic elves, and you’ve got the makings for a fun family night of Christmas movie watching.
I first watched this Disney Christmas movie 15 years ago when my 22-year old daughter was only 7 years old. This movie is so awesome that I had to get my youngest kids, Gracie (she’s 7) and Marcus (he’s 11), on the bandwagon. It’s a great family movie and we had a great night watching it.
What the who? What the hay-hay? My kids tend to get a little crazy when we go shopping at Walmart. Ooops. But I gotta admit, we had us some fun. Watch Gracie and her brother, Marcus, take Walmart by storm.
Now it’s your turn. I challenge to do the splits at Walmart… or at the gym…or at work. Ha!
Well hot dang. Would ya look at that. Matthew traded in his greasy, carb-oh-holic bagel breakfast sammiches from the work cafeteria and started eating Applegate natural turkey bacon instead. Now he’s losing weight!
His strategy is not fancy or complicated. He simply eats 3 slices of uncured turkey bacon each morning with his Espresso coffee. I purchased the first pack of Applegate bacon about a two months ago on a whim. It turned out to be the best whim I ever did have.
Matthew has lost almost 8 pounds already, just from making this smart change to his breakfast choices with no exercise involved. Greasy breakfast bagel sammichs are no longer on his daily menu and he’s getting healthier. woohoo!
Watch the video for Matthew’s approach to losing weight. And in case you’re appalled by what he calls me in the video, I am soliciting hugs from the Internet so I can feel better about myself.
This has been a win-win for both of us: Matthew is happy about the surprising affect it’s had on his weight, and I’m real grateful for the bacon scraps he lets me have. heheheheee. Applegate products have no nitrates, nitrites or other preservatives. Their meats come from animals that are humanely raised and contain no antibiotics or growth hormones. Add some healthy turkey bacon to your life and try out Applegate. BOOM!
