WTF Wednesday – Is anyone watching?

Y’all know I love me some Norman Reedus and just when I thought I couldn’t love him anymore, I saw this photo on his Instagram feed:

Norman ReedusNorman you are just the coolest!

Have you ever seen the show Southern Charm? I am in no way ashamed to admit that it’s my secret indulgence. It’s about the personal and professional lives of several socialites living in Charleston, South Carolina. The cast includes a former MTV Real World cast member, a filmmaker, and a political hopeful who is a former state treasurer, who resigned after being indicted on drug charges and spending 10 months in federal prison.   It’s reality gold y’all!

Southern Charm

This show is chock full of drama but my favorite cast member by far is Patricia Altschul, the fourth wife of Arthur Altschul and a South Carolina socialite. She is a pill!

P. Altshul

Thanks to her I have added several new words and phrases to my everyday vocabulary including, cartini, shameless strumpet, opium den genre, and it’s time for my medicine. In my next life, I want to be Patricia Altschul!

You may remember that MacGyver, my Mom, and I went to a shit ton of garage sales this weekend but what I didn’t tell you is that I found another treadmill. In case you’re new here, mine broke several months ago and MacGyver removed its innards and turned it into a windmill and I was having a hard time finding a new one.

We don’t just go to the store and buy fancy, expensive pieces of equipment. Read: We are cheap! Anyway, since we bought it down in Venice we had to get it back home to Clearwater and that meant that MacGyver and I would have to load it into his truck and at 220 pounds, that was no small feat.

I lift heavy things

I suggested that we pick up the heaviest end first and sit if on the bed of the truck and then we could wrap a rope underneath the other end of the treadmill and grasp each side to lift the treadmill up into the bed of the truck, (because I’m pretty smart.)

MacGyver agreed and we prepared to lift the treadmill. We got it into position and just as we were ready to begin MacGyver said, “Wait!”

ME:             What? Why?

MacGyver: Did you just look back at the neighbor’s house to see if anyone was watching?

ME:             Possibly. Maybe….Okay, yes, yes I did. If I’m going to lift 220 pounds I’m gonna make damn sure somebody sees me do it!

MacGyver: Well, are they watching?

ME:             They are now.

MacGyver: Well lets do this before they look away.

It’s so nice to have a man who understands me and I just wanted to share my thoughts with all of you because, WTF, It’s Wednesday!

Have you ever seen Southern Charm?

mealenders candy

So y’all know I love my sweets. I’m a big snacker, especially in-between meals so when I heard about the opportunity to try MealEnders, ‘The Antidote to Overeating’ as a #sweatpink ambassador, I jumped at the chance. I don’t do a lot of product reviews but if there happens to be a product out there that could help me stop that constant snacking, I seriously wanted to give it a try.

In a nutshell, MealEnders is a little candy that comes in 4 flavors, citrus, cinnamon, mocha and chocolate mint. After eating a meal, you pop a candy in your mouth and it helps you to stop snacking and overeating. Sounds pretty awesome right?

Yes, but how does it work?

MealEnders is a candy with 2 very different layers. The first layer is sweet and creamy and the inside layer is cool and tingly. It works on 3 different levels, behavioral, sensory and psychological.

From a behavioral standpoint, it fills the 20 minute gap that a typical person has before they begin to feel full after eating. It also creates a pause in your eating patterns so you can develop healthier behaviors.

From a sensory standpoint, the sweet outer coating satisfies your craving for dessert and the cool, tingly inner flavor helps to decrease cravings. It also engages the trigeminal nerve which distracts your mind from overeating.

Psychologically, it gives you a sense of control and helps you to develop healthier eating habits.

After a meal or anytime you want to snack, you pop a MealEnder into your mouth and then you suck on it but don’t bite into it. The key is to savor the flavor.

And there is no need to worry, because they’re safe. They are FDA regulated, have only 15 calories, 2 grams of sugar, are low-fat, gluten-free and they’re kosher. They also contain no high fructose corn syrup or msg.

4 packs of MealEnders

Of course, what y’all really want to know is does it work?

The simple answer is yes. It did work for me. I used the MealEnders after eating and at times when I typically want to snack, (while driving and working on the computer). I was worried that I wouldn’t like the taste but I actually really like the cinnamon and the citrus a lot. The mocha flavor is good, but not my favorite and because I really don’t like mint, the chocolate mint was not the biggest hit with me either, but it was better than I expected. In all of the flavors, the outer layer is sort of creamy, and the inner layer taste a bit like a refreshing mint.

Don’t get me wrong, these aren’t magic pills that will magically melt off pounds, but they do help with cravings and that can help you to stop snacking and overeating but don’t take my word for it, the folks over at MealEnders were kind enough to offer my readers a 30% discount off their order.
