Hubby said, “I love Sargento’s but I know you really love Sargento’s more! They motivate you!” Honest, that was what Rick said after I told him I was going to clean the closet because Sargento’s told me to! Just why does Hubby love Sargento’s and why is that company telling me what to do? Rick loves their cheese because of the quality of flavor and that his lil’ old wife is taking part in the Ultra Thin Cheese “Thin to Win” challenges. YES, a contest ~ what else motivates me? Almost daily there are “Thin to Win” challenges. I LoVe LoVe LoVe healthy challenges!!! So far, I’ve said yes to cleaning my refrigerator (oh my goodness ya gotta see it), reestablished my weekly to do list, written a weekly grocery list, and stated what I do for exercise. I’ve probably taken on more of their challenges but I don’t remember at the moment because I just finished a Sargento’s challenge, cleaning my closet, and my brain is dusty!
NOW just by taking on their challenges I move myself into a “winning” thinned out spirit, a reward within itself, butI I’ve actually won prizes too! I won an awesome leather planner, so perfect for ME! And, I won $300 grocery giftcard. I am going to use it when I take care of Shiloh for 3 weeks, before and after she gives birth to BaBY #2! And in my merry spirit I am going to encourage YOU to enter the Sargento’s “Thin to Win” contest. You will WIN no matter if you receive a prize or not!
I want to show you my THINNED OUT CLOSET ~ but right now I am craving a slice of Sargento’s Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese ~ it is only 40 calories!!! Hang on ~ I’ll be right back!
Ohhhh the flavor is distinctly delicious! Okay, confession, I had two pieces! I didn’t have dessert tonight so I figure 80 calories to end my night is great! Yum!
ONWARD to MY closet! I asked Rick to help me gut the closet and we tossed it all into our bedroom. Rick said, “Where are we going to sleep tonight?!” I started at 3:30 p.m and didn’t look at the clock until 8:00 p.m. ~ oh my goodness! I really needed to dust under the dressers and get rid of all of the clothing I don’t wear! Here is my before shot and a photo of my closet once we dragged everything out of the closet.
THIN, Merry. THIN!
#1 Have Hubby wipe down the shelves and DUST under the dressers and shelves!
I HAVE NOT SEEN MY CLOSET this NAKED since we moved in 15 years ago!!!
#3. How many pairs of shoes could you get rid of? I was a genius! I wore every pair of shoes I owned while cleaning my closet. If a pair hurt my feet the were place in the giveway pile!!!! 10 pairs went bye-bye!!!
#4. I thinned my closet by getting rid of clothing that is stained or has not been worn in over a year!
#5. I also, packed all winter clothing and hauled in the summer clothing.
Here is Southern California we only have two seasons!
#6. I always sort my t-shirts and pants in color categories!
OH MY GOODNESS ~ My closet looks better than it ever has in 15 years!!!! I am thrilled!
#7. Give away Clothes! Above are the bags of clothing and shoes that are going to be given to a women’s shelter!
I JUST FEEL soooooo THIN!!!
Now I gotta brag and show you my FRIG too!
NOW you understand why RICK and I both LoVe LoVe LoVe Sargento’s! I am having sooo much fun and hard work thinning to WIN!
You should go for it too!
Oh I almost forgot ~ because this is my food blog I will show you a panini i made for Rick yesterday. I included 3 slices of Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese ~ YEP ~ Delish!
Until next time, MERRY COOKING
