I have posted a bit on facebook about my recent weight loss adventures....and for those of you who are not on facebook I thought I'd share a bit here!! :O)

A few years ago I did the Medifast diet and lost a large amount of weight and felt wonderful!! However.....I did not follow the transition plan and had a really hard time then transitioning onto "real food" on my own....DUH right!! So fast forward and there I was again.....unhealthy!! So....I went back to Medifast!!

I LOVE Medifast!! Thru it you eat 5 of their YUMMY meals and 1 lean and green meal that you prepare!! It is sooooo simple and takes the thinking out of your "diet"!! You eat every 2 or 3 hours so you're not grab a simple to prepare packet and in 2 minutes you're having your meal!! I need the control.....the discipline of Medifast to get me started and then once I am in control of my mindless grazing habits.....Medifast affords me the simplicity and speed to grab and go and not take a ton of time to prepare when I feel crazy busy!!'s quick weight loss leaving me motivated to continue!! It's a great tool for me!!

When Brady came home.....he's an exercise nut and wanted me to join him....I was hesitant because it is a low calorie diet and didn't want to jeopardize my already slower losses....but since the goal is health....I decided to go ahead and join him!! We started walking about 45 minutes to an hour each night....and guess what.....the weight loss has picked up!! LOL!! I've lost 3 pounds in 2 days!! LOL!! I don't expect this kind of loss to continue....back to a more steady slower pace I'm sure....but lesson learned!! This journey is to get back to health...not necessarily a set number on the scale!! :O)

So there you name is Stacey....and left to my own devises....I eat mindlessly to control stress which creates more stress which makes me out of control which leads to...... :O) .......and now at 21 (I am 21..... stop laughing) I am going to finally gain control over my mind and my behind (uuuummmmm well at least my behind....the mind is probably a lost cause)!! Should you want info (several have asked about Medifast which is why I'm sharing this)'s my code.....they have great deals for beginners...and by using my code....I get a couple bucks too!! :O)

I pray you don't see this as an info-mercial because truly it is not!! For me...Medifast is a great tool but I can see how it may not be right for every person!! I share this because quite a few have asked about what I'm doing!! :O) If you have questions let me know....and if you have weight loss thoughts and tips....please share!! :O)
And now.....I'm back to work!! Our next auction will be next weekend!! Woooo Hooooo and a little moooooo tooo!!! LOL!! It's an all animal lineup!! :O)
C-ya then!!

Thank You!!

A huge and hearty thank you to everyone who played along in our January auction!! What a great success and what fun suspense with bidding down to the last minute!! Woooooow-weeeeeee!!

Can't wait to share with you in February!!
TTFN my friends!!

Spoke too Soon!!

The other week.......I posted about a new site I had found related how I had excitedly ordered my first box from them because of the grand deal it was!! Ummmmmm.....

Over Christmas break.....Brady and I tried out Daily Burn's 30 day free trial and instantly fell in love!! It's an online program offering tons of exercises which can be accessed via the internet.....certain smart tvs....and we've been using it thru an app on the xbox360!! Oh my is amazing!! You can fill out a little q&a from which they suggest certain programs for you to follow we have can pick and choose which workout you'd like to do for the day!! I've tried kettle bell which I had never done before.....the traditional circuit training where you do intervals of weights and cardio....I've tried the traditional cardio sooooo much more!! I LOVE DAILY BURN!! :O)

Because Daily Burn is a paid monthly subscription after the first 30 days.....of course I started researching deals and found through online searches....Klutch Club!! The site shows a picture of a $30 gift card for Daily Burn and even does a little write up on it....included under the weight loss box in addition to earbuds and then several samples of weight loss foods. I ordered the box and blogged about my excitement!!

Got the box the other day......

Firstly....the box was really little...and I thought uh-oh!!

Secondly....I opened it to find a few samples....roasted hemp seeds (ummmm alright????).....a red beet savory tea bag (yummmmm!! NOT!!) appetite suppressing sucker (haven't tried but ok!!)....cocoa beans to be brewed like coffee (this I will probably use!!)....coconut water...and a couple other samples!!

And gift was a $1 off coupon on core protein!!


I am soooooo disappointed!! Upon re-reading the does state "your box may include..." but c'mon!! Pictured is $70 or $80 worth of products....I got 6 samples most of which I will NEVER try....beet tea and hemp seeds??????? I paid $22.50!! (I found a first time customer discount and free shipping codes)

I did email them with my concerns....and have heard nothing but silence BTW!!! Sooo.... please forgive me for suggesting this site!! I pray no one else tried them...and if you did on my recommendation....I am soooooo very sorry!!!


However.....I stand beside Daily Burn!!
Have a great day.....after all.....IT'S FRIIIIIIIDAAAAAY!!!! :O)

Get Your Bidding Signal Ready!!!

Last month Rick & I decided to try something different!! For years....folks have been asking for online sales....and so we thought this was the a fun way to offer that!! :O)

December's auction was a great success....although we have gotten many calls and emails stating folks were unable to place bids!! :O( Apparently I didn't take into consideration that you must be my "friend" on facebook to comment.....and you must have a google account to comment here!! So folks could see what we were offering....but unable to bid!! Therefore....this month....we are going to additionally accepting bids via our email!!

Sooooo....bidding will be accepted.....

                  on facebook: Stacey McClure

                  here on this blog

                  or by email:

Bidding will be in whole dollar amounts and paid via paypal or cashiers check sent via snail mail!! I will keep both facebook and the blog updated with the current bid.....and respond if you are bidding via email to ensure that your bid was received!!

Winning bidder pays shipping determined from 44615 and usually through UPS due to an account we have with them allowing for a small discount!! (If we figure that USPS is cheaper tho.....we will certainly send it thru them!!) :O)

January's auction will be available for preview Sunday (Jan 12) at 8pm with bidding from 9pm Sunday thru Wed (Jan 15) at 9pm!!

We'll see ya Sunday evening!! Get your bidding signal ready!! :O)

New You in the New Year?

Have you heard of Daily Burn? Oh my gosh!! It is amazing!! It is actually an online exercise source that you can view via either your computer.....a smartTV.....or as we have thru xbox online!!

Brady and I have been using the free 1 month review.....and have LOVED every workout we've done!! There are millions (not really but a lot) to choose's(super yuck)......cardio (which I have a love/hate relationship with)......weight strength training (LOVE).....tabata (love/hate).....and so much more which we haven't even begun to look at!!

You put in what your level of exercise is (like for instance.....last week I wiggled my little toe and that's as much exercise as I've had in 14 years) much time you have to workout (I prefer to burn 4000 calories in no longer than 5 minutes....and not sweat).....and they suggest a can choose that program....or another.....or just look around and pick any workout you'd like each time!! LOVE it!!

So.......while searching for info on Daily Burn.....I also found KlutchClub!!
I just tried it for the first time......ordering the Best of Weight Loss box!! I can't wait to get it because guess what is included along with all the other goodies.......a $30 gift card to Daily Burn!! I know.....right.....AWESOME!!! Especially since the Klutchclub box was $25!! A no-brainer right!!!

So.......there you go!! If you wanna try either of really should!! I really think you'd like 'em!! If you'd like to try out the here to tell 'em I sent ya (I will earn points if you decide to join)......and let me know wha'cha think!! Misery loves company you know!! :O)

Happy New Year y'all!! We are back in the shop on Monday so watch for our next auction soon!!
