The Body Fat Solution Winner and Friday Catch Up

The winner of The Body Fat Solution is:

Congratulations - now you can stop drooling, lol! Email me ( your mailing address and I will pass it on to the publisher so they can mail you your book!

Last week I won a giveaway from Jenn at Slim-Shoppin' (thanks, Jenn!) for a Special K New Years package and I have to say that I loved how they presented everything...the red bowl with the paper shreds, the New Years tiara, lei and noisemaker - how cute is this?!? So far I've had the Fruit Crisps, which taste like thin Pop-Tarts; the multi-grain crackers, which are good and I appreciate that you get a lot for one serving (17 crackers for only 90 calories); and the low-fat Granola, which is tasty as well! I had to make my husband take the fruit crisps with him to work - the calorie count isn't bad (100 for two bars), but I really try not to eat too much processed food like that. I am looking forward to trying the protein shakes next week after my workouts - they will come in handy when I have to run an errand or two right after but still need to get the protein in me to rebuild my muscles. My only issue with these products is the amount of sugar that is in everything, even the multi-grain crackers, which has both sugar and honey. I don't think this is necessary and would be more inclined to buy their products in the future if they would cut the sugar content way down. That said, this was a fun thing to win and I do appreciate the chance to try these products!

Due to the fact that Blogger is not letting her comment, I've been emailing back and forth with Benita of Basically Benita. She's into fibers and spinning and weaving and knitting...oh, and losing weight...hence the emails. Anyway, she is starting a 10,000 Step Club and since not everyone can or wants to run (this was so me a year ago) here is another way to get involved with a group of like-minded people! Click here to join!

Recently, I was honored to be the subject of a couple of interviews...if you haven't had enough of me already, here they are:

Monica on the Go featured me in this post - thanks, Monica!
I'm also profiled on, thanks, Melissa!

I know I said that last Monday would be the end of the giveaways for a while, but I got the chance to do another one where the winner will get two little pieces of Fiestaware, which I love - so I couldn't resist! Check in on Monday for your chance to win!


  1. I know what you mean about added sugar (and other necessary stuff)...I find myself checking labels for HFCS now! Those commercials make me nuts...the ones that say HFCS is ok in moderation. Well, maybe it is, but our food industry doesn't believe in moderation!

  2. The Special K cinnamon pecan cereal is the best I have had in a long, long time. The rest are not nearly as good, especially the berries which get goopy and slimy, UGH. But I have the cinnamon pecan every morning!

    Ooooh, I love Fiestaware too. Looking forward to Monday!

  3. Whenever you review something I feel like I have a girlfriend chatting with me about something new they've tried. But, Shelley, I would read your blog, giveaways or not. Thanks for the virtual hug yesterday, I really needed it.

  4. Gotta say I share your skepticism over those processed things. Still, you got some neat swag. Curious how those protein shakes taste.

    Tres cool that you are featured like that. Baby, you're a star!

  5. Hey, not EVERYONE wants to run!


    Have a great weekend!

  6. OH, I LOVE your interview. I couldn't get to the first post yet. Guess it's still down.

    I did not know that you worked out with the trainers 3 days a week! Wow, no wonder you're in such great shape. :) It does sound like a great class. Wish I were closer so I could go too.

    Congrats to Lori. I was hoping to win it but I'm not bitter. LOL

    Looking forward to the next giveaway!

    You're doing so great. Truly.

  7. Nice press, Shelley. You really deserve all the attention as your journey has been remarkable.

  8. Nice articles Shelley, you deserve to be in the spotlights!

    You've asked about my company. We are the biggest DIY company in Holland.

    I hope the mailman will make you happy tomorrow, it's about time you receive it :)

  9. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! I'm so excited to win!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you! Email on it's way!

  10. Lori, your excitement is too cute!

    Shelley, congrats on all your good press! And thanks for passing on the info about the 10,000 steps. I really want a pedometer so I can do that sort of thing, and I'm definitely not going to be able to join the March 7th runners.

  11. I have that book on Kindle and I really liked it. Yay Lori!

  12. I am glad you are going to do the Fiestaware giveaway and I hope I win!!

    Congratulations to Lori on winning the great prize!

  13. Hi Shelley,
    Thanks for visiting my blog...I truly can't believe that Sunny's comment made it through your tough screening process. Not everyone wants to run, really??!! OMG, why not? It's THE best way to exercise, ok...maybe not the ONLY way to exercise but definitely the best. Poor Sunny, does she know what she's missing?? JK, to each her own! By the way, you are MY inspiration and you look like a million dollars, girl!
