BarkWorld Where Have You Been All of My {Social Media} Life?

Long before I was a Mommy, I was a Mom.  I have always had fur babies and I have an absolute soft spot for my doggies (and fish).  I was recently having a conversation with my friend and she was telling me about how she is going to BarkWorld.  "Bark what?" I asked.  She proceeded to tell me about BarkWorld and how they are the National Pet Social Media Conference.  BarkWorld Expo is the only pet social media conference covering social media, lifestyle and technology as it relates to pet owners and businessesBeing the pet lover that I am and the social media savvy blogger that I am, I was shocked that I was so out-of-the-loop.  Have you heard of BarkWorld before?

One thing that I really love is that Iams is one of their sponsors!  My 7 year old Olde English Bulldogge Daisy has such bad skin allergies that we have to buy very specific (and expensive) food for her.  We feed her and Cooter Iams Sensitive Naturals Ocean Fish with Barley and Rice.  Ever since we switched them to this amazing food, he allergies are just a thing of the past. 

I could write on and on about the holistic and natural treats I feed and bake for my dogs.  How I bathe them in ecofriendly shampoo and how I have to be certain to walk my bulldogge a certain way.  

I wish I could personally attend BarkWorld but it happens to be the same weekend as Oliver's 2nd birthday.  You know I couldn't miss that for the world!

How cute are these two sleeping on Mama's bed?
This leads me to this question.  How many of my Green friends have pets and would like to learn more about lessening their pet's carbon footprint, about BarkWorld and other fun pet facts?  I am so glad you do because I plan on bringing more about this topic to you very soon!

12 Week Shaklee Cinch Update

It has been a marvelous and crazy last 12 weeks since I embarked on the Shaklee Cinch journey.  I have laughed. I have cried. I have eaten a lot of Cinch meal bars. I have drank a lot of Cinch shakes.  I even cheated a couple of times and had pizza and a couple of beers!

All that aside, I have lost a staggering 23.2 pounds and 21 inches!!!  All of this in 12 weeks!  I haven't been the most faithful exerciser but I have been a lot more conscious about what I am eating and how much I am moving.

Shaklee dubs this the Cinch Inch Loss Plan.  I think it should be called the Cinch Inch Loss (and forgiveness) Plan.  Why?  It is so forgiving!  Cheat one day? Get back on the next and rock it #LikeaBoss the next.  Forgot to exercise?  No problem, follow the program.  Everyone knows that dieting success is 80% diet and 20% exercise.  With Cinch, you don't have to worry about the dieting part.  Shaklee took all the worrying and guesswork out of it for you!  Losing fat and gaining muscle, thats how I roll!

I am so excited to show you my before and after pictures!  When I posted them to my #Cinchspiration friends this morning the only thing I could write was OMG!!  I couldn't believe how my current self looked compared to my former self.  See for yourself.....

Look how clear my skin looks now!


All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone.  The quality might not be the best but its hard to deny/fool your phone.  No fancy camera lenses, no trickery.  JUST ME!

So, what do you think?

This post is part of the Shaklee Corporation’s Team #Cinchspiration Campaign. I have received free products, online support and incentives for participating.  My opinions are my all my own and the only thing that I am giving up is unwanted weight!
