So it’s been a few days since I started my Special K Challenge. Things are going well so far. I am doing my best to get as much exercise as I can and sticking to my diet. I have been eating Special K Vanilla Almond cereal for breakfast, enjoying Special K Raspberry Cheesecake snack bars, and eating regular suppers. I have been doing my nightly weigh in. I am currently at 136 lbs. I am very close to my goal, but I would like to push for another 5-10 lbs if possible. Wish me luck and I will keep you updated!
Yes. I am doing it! I am taking the Special K Challenge. The goal is to ‘lose a pant size in 2 weeks’. Tomorrow will mark day 1. My daily meal plan will include: one bowl of Special K Cereal with skim milk for breakfast, a Special K drink or bar for lunch, and supper as usual. I will also be eating 1-2 Special K products throughout the day for snacks and drinking my usual beverages. The Special K Challenge does not suggest any exercise, however, I will specifically spending about 300 minutes a week exercising by either swimming, treadmill, or aerobic work out.
My goal is to lose, yes a pant size; but also at least 10 lbs. over a 2 week period (this is why I am including exercise). I will give you continuous updates on my status and I will do a daily weigh in at the same time daily in the nude on the same scale. This will ensure accuracy.
My target weight is 135 at the end of 2 weeks.
Along with my own challenge, I will be having a giveaway. Of course it is a Special K Giveaway! Here are the details…

Have problems with your kiddos eating their fruits and veggies? This is what we do… at supper time we chop up fresh fruits and vegetables and put them in the center of the table. We usually add a side of veggie dip and tell the kids that they can pick at least one of the two. If they eat it, they get a yummy snack later like a cupcake, cookie, etc. If they choose not to eat one, well no sweets. It works really well in our house. You should give it a try!
The kids had so much fun making Christmas cake and the best part was watching them eat up the left over batter in the bowl. They loved it!
Yummy Christmas Cake! I had so much fun letting the kids makes this cake and they did a pretty good job too don’t you think?
Nothing better than a thick steak right? Guess again! Want to know what’s even better? A steak packed with Fat Boy’s Ride Em’ Cowgirl Steak Rub. Mm. Go to your local super market and grab up some! It is so good. The best steak I have ever had!
If you have kiddos that refuse to eat fruits or veggies, you have to try one of the many flavors of V8 Fusion. My kids love it and they don’t even know it’s good for them!
