Special K Cereals

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!

Special K Challenge and Giveaway

25 Jan

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…
