Windex and Walmart a winning combination for your Spring Cleaning!

     When I was chosen  for this blog post, I found it ironic that the Greek Mommy blogger was selected for WINDEX® . Yes we have all seen that movie where the Greek family say they put Windex ® on everything. Well that is partially true. No I don’t put Windex ® on aches and pains, nor has my family. But we do use it to clean everything else. Did you know that Windex ® is not just for Windows? You can us it on mirrors, sealed granite and marble, glass shower doors, chrome bathroom fixtures, lucite, tile, plastic, vinyl, aluminum and more. Oh My! Did you know that Windex® Original Glass Cleaner is America’s #1 glass cleaner? I can see why.

I love having clean windows even on a gloomy Chicago day.

     With Spring Cleaning season upon us I headed out to my local Walmart. Got to love how easy it is to find my favorite products there. At Walmart I picked up Windex ® for all my cleaning needs. Being a Mom I clean all year around. But in the Spring I always do an extra deep cleaning. The Salt and grime on the windows is a particular mess for us Chicagoans. By the time Spring comes around I need a strong window cleaner. And ever since I can remember it was Windex ®. That familiar blue bottle that my family used. Even as a young girl I remember my Yaiyai, Greek Grandmother using Windex ®.

YAY! Not only did Walmart have my Windex but a Bonus bottle with 23% more Free!

 

 

Now as a Mom and a Pet Mom dirt and smudges are an everyday item. So when I start cleaning I always do the windows and dust first. For the windows I tackled our Living room windows that are stained glass. They are actual two windows in each frame. Yay! Double the work. But if the glass is not clean what good is having pretty windows? Even though Spring weather has not hit us officially I am ready to start cleaning. How about you?

I’m Back again

     I have not written a blog in a long time. My goal is to have one written about my Tampa trip. Earlier this month I attended One 2016 conference for It Works. I plan to write my first travel related blog entry. After 6 days I got to know the city and experience some great places. From ocean front seafood restaurant to what I would call a shack with some of the best crab legs ever. If your wondering why I haven’t been blogging I had put more time and effort into my It Works business? My paid blogs had stopped and I honestly was not sure what to talk about. But I am back and look forward to adding more content this week. Talk to you soon.

Chicken Tortilla Soup- Crockpot version

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Snapchat-843284690175783324

This has become a family favorite. The best part if you like it spicy or hot you can make it easily, by substituting mild ingredients for their hot versions.

Ingredients-

  • 4 uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (15oz) can of un-drained crushed or petite tomatoes
  • 1 (10oz) can of mild or medium red enchilada sauce
  • 1 (15oz) can of black beans, Drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped. I omit this because my son hates them and its just as good.
  • 1 (4oz) can of chopped green chile peppers
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 (15oz) can of corn, drained
  • 2 (14.5oz) can of chicken broth
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

 

  • Instructions: Place all ingrediants in Crockpot. Cook on High for about 3 to 4 hours. When chicken is done. Pull out the chicken and shred with a fork. Caution they are hot! Add the chicken back in and let sit for about 5 minutes then serve. Top with cheese and tortilla strips or broken chips.

It Works! Triple Threat!

As you may have seen on my social media sites, or this blog. I have become an It Works! distributor. The reason I did decide to do it is. When I lost weight on Oxy Elite Pro (original formula,Now illegal in the US) I had quite a few people buy it because of my results. So this time I plan to sell “my diet secret”. I will even share some before and after pictures after the 30 day mark. But I will fill you in on progress as I go.

Triple Threat

Diet Plan-
I am using three It Works! products during the month of June. It is what we call the Triple Threat. I am using The It Works! Greens, Thermofit, and Fat Fighters. I have not yet decided when I plan to start wraps yet. I have over 80lbs to lose ultimately. If I had less then 40lbs Id start using the wraps. Right now my goal is to lose 10lbs for the month of June. I am hoping for 15lbs. Haha! As far as my eating I plan to eat about 1250-1550 calories a day. I will be walking with my Bestie about 3 days a week. Thats about 5miles a day. And on the other days I will take an hour long walk and do mild strength training. This is of course depending on any Fibro flare-ups. If your intrested in joining me on my weight loss. Check Out my It Works! website http://bodywrapyourcurves.com

Here is another way to do the Triple Threat with

I just joined It Works! as an independent distributor! Yay!


Most of us who are on social media, like I am, have seen It Works! wraps. After seeing 100’s of Before and After pictures I decided to take the plunge. As most of you know I lost a ton of weight about 5 years ago. Then due to medications I gained most back. I could go and just buy the wraps…But why not make money? To start as a distributor my kit was only $99. That’s the price of a few drinks or dinner out.
