Why Do They Lie? :)

I came across this picture recently and couldn't stop laughing. Am I crazy? Delusional? I doubt it, I guess I find humor in redundant things. This picture depicts Fast Food advertisements vs. the REAL STUFF that you unwrap when eating in their "fine" establishments.

Don't get me wrong, I love fast food, haven't had any in a while (and about 7 years ago vowed never to go to that disgusting place called McDonalds). I do love it though, but was wondering... If they advertised the foods on the right side, the real food, I bet people wouldn't want to eat there as much. Its just something I figured because looking at the advertised food makes me crave it, but looking at the real food I say, "600+ calories for that, no thanks!". Sadly in my head I know how yummy the Whopper (without cheese) really is :( 

There are many new items that I would run out and buy before. Thinking back now, I ran out to buy it because it LOOKED good in the commercials, but was very disappointed! In example, when KFC unveiled their Honey BBQ Snacker and Mashed Potato Bowl I was at the store in mere seconds, lol. The bowl made me throw up that day, it was repulsive. The mixture of corn, mashed potatoes, gravy and a little bit of popcorn chicken just shouldn't be done! And their snacker was such a disappointment, the bread tasted old and stale. Theres about 5 bucks I could've stretched at a Target haul :)

Randomness can't be beat :) Any of you guys buy and try something just because it looked good in the advertisements? I bet so!

My Cube Dog Is Adorable! Do You Have One Yet?

Cube Dog Logo
Thank you to Cube Dog for sponsoring this review. For more information about Cube Dog please visit the Facebook page or download it on iTunes.

Ever ask your parents if you could have a dog when you were younger? I'm sure they said no and preached about the endless responsibilities they were sure you couldn't handle. Oh well, Cube Dog is here :) I,  myself, have 3 dogs; a Siberian Husky and German Shepherd-mix boy, pure Siberian Husky puppy and Papillon-mix girl. They ARE a handful, but we love them! What person could honestly look at my dogs adorable faces and say they don't want on of their own? No one, thats who!

For those of you that are restricted by apartment or condo rules to have dogs, or simply don't have the space or time now have another option, get yourself a Cube Dog. The Cube Dog app is can be download for FREE via iTunes for select iPhone and iPod touch devices. This virtual Cube Dog requires no poop scooping, grooming or expensive vet visits. You can customize up to 3 Cube Dogs on your device and name them. You get to do the fun stuff, play, let them act like ninjas, among other fun activities. See the fun pictures I took of my Cube Dog:
Cube Dog ImageCube Dog ImageCube Dog ImageCube Dog Image
I absolutely love the Cube Dog app! I bought the Parts Pack for only $0.99 to unlock 84 additional parts. I customized the cutest Cube Dog and named him after my puppy, Spock. There are a couple of animations available with the app, my favorite is where he turns into a little ninja :) You can customize their color as well, I just wish there was a way we can color them multiple colors to make them a little more realistic :) I can also take pictures of my Cube Dog in REAL LIFE, so you can snap one with them on your desk and send them off to friends and family via twitter, facebook or even email them!

Cube Dog is was just recently released on June 2, 2011 so you can expect more features and premium items available soon. But, if you can't wait there are packages available to buy to further customize your Cube Dogs. Pack No.1 and No.2, (both unlock 12 fun animations for $2.99) and a Parts Pack that unlocks all 84 parts for only $0.99. I wonder what great customized Cube Dogs people will make with all the extra parts! :) Be sure to check compatibility before downloading the app. Cube Dog is compatible for the iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3rd or 4th generation running iOS 4.0 or higher.

See the video above to see a little preview of the Cube Dog in action and be Sure to "Like" Cube Dog on Facebook to share your Cube Dog pictures AND keep an eye out for a fun contest that will be running from June 13-17! I hope you guys try this app out, you AND your kids, siblings, grand-kids, nieces and nephews will love it!

FREE $5 Gift Certificate for Best Buy from Shopkick!

I hope you guys caught my last post on the fun Shopkick app for iPhone and Android devices! If you didn't, shopkick is a FREE app that you download to accumulate points to use towards facebook credits or Gift Cards for stores like Target, Best Buy, Macy's, Victoria's Secret, etc. To accumulate point all you have to do it open the app while you're in the store and you automatically get kickbucks (the amount depends on the store you're visiting). You also can scan the barcodes of certain products in store to earn more kickbucks. Did I mention that the Target section in the app also has electronic Target coupons? They are different from the ones on the Target website AND the mobile coupons! 

Shopkick is giving away a FREE $5 Best Buy Gift Certificate (through their app). So if you haven't downloaded it, make sure you do :) The Best Buy Gift Certificate will be available to use for 48-hours before it expires and you do NOT have to visit the store in order to get it, all you do is open up the Shopkick app and claim in in the Best Buy section. It was scheduled to be available today but they ran into some technical problems so it will most likely be up for grabs tomorrow :) Check out the Shopkick Facebook page for updates! :)

Use code "RABBIT7476" to earn an extra 50 kick bucks! To redeem this code and your kick bucks, download the ShopKick app and go to the "Me" tab on the app to enter the code under "Got A Promo Code?" :)

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #6)

This is my 6th week on the Nutrisystem program. I'm so close to hitting 20lbs. lost! Its tremendous, by next week ill have lost 20lb. on Nutrisystem and exercise alone :) I don't know why, but I don't see much physical difference yet. Yes, I have mentioned my pants are looser but other than that I don't see it. I should have taken before and after measurements and pictures. I don't see the difference physically, but do see it on the scale and feel it mentally. The Nutrisystem program is getting easier and easier to stay on. I always feel content, when I'm hungry (which is only when I don't have a filling breakfast) I just grab some grapes, which are only about 65 calories per cup.

Exercise is going well. I've changed my goals and now will burn 3,500 a week. 3,500 is equal to a pound and by burning 500 calories a day I will accomplish that. I usually burn about 600-700 2 days out of the week so it lets me have a "rest day" where I ca just lounge around but still eat right. I get my exercise on the EA Sports Active 2 for XBOX 360. I posted my review on this great game last week so check it out :). All this takes motivation. There are many ways of getting that, family, friends, goals, etc. This past week I received another motivation to help me, Pound the Nutribear. By next week Commitment the Nutribear might be on his way to join him too! :)

This weeks weight-loss was very good and what I was expecting.  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, I'll be able to send for my 2nd Nutribear next week! Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey, my photos on Flickr or my videos on YouTube! Now its time, my weight loss for the 5th 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]
-2.5 lbs. [5/29/11]
-2.6 lbs. [6/5/11] 
Total: 18.8 lbs.
