Long Weekend & Big Hairy Tails!

Its a long weekend and all I know for sure is that I'll be hitting up Target for the Pedigree Dog Food gift card deal! My little Spock (Black & White) is eating like a monster! He is a growing puppy and its funny comparing pictures of him now and when we got him in March. His face is so much bigger, he is longer, fatter (well-fed) and his tail is bigger. I'm sure his tail is going to be as fluffy and big as my other furry Husky. Its so big it actually hurts when he wags his tail and it hits you lol. :) See him above? Let me know how it feels when you get smacked in the face with a big tall like that haha! The third little doggie is my only girl, already 2 y/o now. :) They are the cutest things ever!

Woohoo! Its going to be a nice LONG weekend! Whether you're stuffing yourself with hot dogs (wish I could be) or just relaxing at home, I hope you all enjoy it! I don't know what I'll be doing yet, but if all else fails, a WHOLE weekend just resting at home would be much needed. I have slept less than 4-5 hours a day this past week and with school and getting in a little over an hour of exercise each day, I've just been exhausted.

Stock Up Alert! $0.19 Bar-S Hot Dogs @ Vallarta

My family goes through too many of these Bar-S Hot Dogs a week! Full price they are a little over a dollar BUT they are on special for $0.69 at Vallarta Supermarkets (availale 5/35 - 5/31). There is also a GREAT coupon in last Sundays coupons inserts to make this a STOCK UP deal! If you don't have a Vallarta Supermarket around you, these Bar-S hot dogs are going on special very often right now due to Memorial Day weekend so keep an eye out! I also have a feeling they will go this low again around Fourth of July! You can freeze them so be sure to STOCK PILE these if your family goes though them like mine does! 

Bar-S Hot Dogs (16oz.) - $0.69
Use (1) $1/2 Bar-S Franks (16oz.) or Bologna from 5/22 RP
Total: $0.19 each after coupon and sale!

*Keep in mind the Bar-S bologna also is pretty cheap, regularly priced at around a dollar so you can score those for as little as $0.50 each after coupon! I'm heading to Vallarta to pick up 20 pack of Bar-S Hot Dogs for just $3.80! What a deal!

Vote For Us, Please :)

Late last year I entered a contest on CSN and never expected to be one of 103 finalists (out of 13,000 entries). The contest is for a 15,000 Make-Over for our backyard, which we desperately need. See the picture above? Its ok for the dogs, but horrible for my family. It was so hot last year we bought an above-ground pool (over $300) and only used it a couple weeks because the endless dirt that piled up on the bottom. We have no grass in our backyard, just dirt and rocks. We even tried planting 3 trees with no success (they died).

I would love to be able to have a place out there for my younger three siblings (5-18) and parents. After being stuck in a small apartment for over 20 years, it would be a great blessing. We have tried countless times to save up but other bills just pile on. I hope you guys can stop by and vote for us! By voting, you can also earn 10 extra entries into my 1-Year Blogiversay Giveaway for 1 of 2 $50.00 Target Gift Cards! :) Thank you to everyone who does vote, it means the world to us!

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #4) + Video

My first month on Nutrisystem is over. Time has flown by as if it were being chased. Four weeks down and although the changes haven't been dramatic (on the outside) they have been mentally. I mentioned before that I cut out soda (both diet, non-diet) and that has made me feel fantastic. As a result I no longer get headaches (who knew I got them from the soda), my face is clearing up a lot more and I generally feel better. As for physical changes, my pants are a bit loose, other than that, nothing that I've noticed. Before I started Nutrisystem I did not exercise at all, now that I get in at least 30min (I prefer getting in about an hour daily) I have more energy. I love working out to the point where I'm so tired that miraculously I get a "second boost" and spend another 10-20min. exercising. At this point I wish I had a regular bike so I could go bike for a while around my neighborhood. Hopefully I'll be able to save up some money for that later on.

I'm doing much better with flexing my meals, this is where once in a while you substitute your Nutrisystem meal for something else. I keep in mind the nutritional facts of the meals I regularly eat and try to match that with my flex meal. As for a whole month now gone, I definitely have my favorite foods; Chili w/ Beans, Chicken Tenders with Wild Rice, Steak & Cheese Melt, Chicken Fajita Melt, White Chocolate Chunk Cookie, Ice Cream Sandwich and Veggie Roasted Pizza. So delicious!

You guys can look forward to a video blog every month while I'm on Nutrisystem, This month I wanted to do a quick review of the Nutrisystem App available for Apple and Android devices. I LOVE it. Instead of having to lug around the meal planner, I have that and then some on my phone via the Nutrisystem App. It calculates the calories I've had daily and is a HUGE help. Such a great convenience it is, and FREE.
Unfortunately this weeks weight-loss was not much, but I blame it on the not-so-friendly monthly visitor. I felt bloated for the majority of the week and I'm sure I have tons of water weight that my body is retaining from this menstrual cycle. I can't wait to keep pushing myself and lose more weight. I have now made a personal goal to lose a minimum of 10lbs. a month over the next 3 months I have left. :) I'm exited that I have rightfully earned my 1st Nutribear last week! Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey and photos on Flickr! Now its time, my weight loss for my 4th week on Nutrisystem:

Weight Loss:
-6.2 lbs.[5/1/11]
-3.1 lbs.[5/8/11]
-2.6 lbs.[5/15/11]
-1.8 lbs.[5/22/11]
Total: 13.7 lbs.
