This morning while eating my heaping bowl of Special K, I noticed this bit about the "Special K Challenge" on the back.
If anyone can tell me a worse idea, I will give you a handful of my laundry/parking quarters. (Anyone who has ever lived in LA knows how precious an offering this is)
For those who aren't familiar with the Special K Challenge, it's the one that tells you to only eat 2 meals a day, each consisting of 1/2 cup of special k with a tablespoon of skim milk. Maybe it's the fact that I eat my cereal 3 servings at a time and usually only after midnight but...I'm offended by this.
I visited their website and here is my Meal Plan for today. Only 13 days to go!
I have a feeling I will be hungry, drained and cranky until I get to my spaghetti dinner.
What happened to good, old-fashioned exercise? Apparently teaspoons of sugary carbs are just as good.
Each cereal box has this bit about "What I gained when I lost," where suckers who fell for this anorexic scheme tell you how they've gained self-esteem in the place of love handles. My Vanilla Almond flavor has an attractive Mom wearing Mom Jeans, claiming to have gained "Swag." Hmmmmm.
Sorry, Special K, but I guess my Swag will have to go un-gained. Consider your challenge lost!
