My Rusty Van


I would like to introduce you to my van A.K.A. the Heasley Hot-rod! March - April 20109 377:)

Over the course of ten years and many different owners, you can see that it has been through a lot.   It isn’t much of a hot-rod any more (Although I can’t really say that it ever was.)  It gets me from point A to point B and that is all that matters. 

I knew that if I didn’t take care of the rust now, it would only get worse.  As you can see by how much rust there is that I have already put this job off for too long. 

The whole job cost about $10 and about 2 hours of my time.  The longest part was waiting for the primer and paint to dry.  

I went to a local auto store and bought some Automobile Primer (about $5.00), and the Auto Paint (Also around $5.00).  You have to make sure you get the right color so ask an attendant for some help. Make sure you know the make and year of your car. There is also a sticker with a number code either under the hood or on the diver side door for. This code will help the attendant get the exact color for you need for your car. March - April 20109 382

The Preparations Begin!

Before you start any big project you need to make sure you have all of the right materials and prepare anything and everything that you will need to do before you begin.  I had 6 things that I needed to do before I could go ahead and start spray painting.

1.   Find all of the rust spots on your car.  this sounds obvious but if you don’t make a thorough check before hand you might not get all the spots.

2.   Scrape away any of the old chipped paint.

3.   Sand away all of the rust areas. (I already hand an electric hand sander which was perfect for the job.

4.   Keep sanding until all of the rust is gone. You should only see the natural metal and it will feel completely smooth.

5.   Wipe down the surface of the car with a Basic H Wipe

6.   Prepare the car for primer with painters tape and newspaper. Picnik collage

I must say, this job was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  Altogether it only took me about 2 hours of time and only about half of that was actual working time. The rest of the time I was making dinner while waiting for the primer and paint to dry.

My hot-rod looks like new again.  I am so happy with the way it turned out!  You can do a lot with a little hard work and a lot of determination.

Here are just a few Helpful Hint

- Make sure you have the right supplies for your project before you begin.

- Take time to prepare your car properly.

- Check the weather!! I didn’t and it started to rain as soon as I finished. I was able to pull it into the garage. I got pretty lucky this time!! :)

A New Kitchen Sink

     This white kitchen sink has apparently been discolored by food, coffee, and nasty dish water.  I thought that the stains would never come off.  To my surprise the stains came right off with the help of Shaklee Scour Off. With a kitchen scrubby sponge and a little elbow grease it came right off. I absolutely love Shaklee Scour Off. Not only is this product 100% natural but it is also very inexpensive . Oh and did I mention that it smells great. It is made from cherry pits so it has a great scent to it.  The Shaklee Company is the number one natural nutrition company in the United States and it is the first company in the world to be certified Climate Neutral! You have to try Shaklee Scour Off for yourself!


This was the kitchen sink before.125


After the Shaklee Scour Off … it looks like a brand new sink!130


This was the worst part of the sink. It had the most stains. 128


This is the drain after I cleaned it.  It looks amazing, I just love it!!! 134


The right side of the sink before.126


The right side of the sink after. 131


The left side of the sink wasn’t the worst, but...127


You can see a big difference now.132


Instead of buying a new sink I just had to clean up this one with the Get Clean Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste!   It is an exclusive scouring cleanser that sets a new standard. It’s a paste, so it doesn’t form dust clouds. It cleans stuck-on messes. It even cleans food that is burnt-on in your oven and it doesn’t burn off your nose hairs in the process.


Try and see for yourself.  It has a 100% money back guarantee. You have nothing to lose, it really works. You won’t regret it, I didn't.

Its a Cinch to loose an Inch

At the beginning of last year, I had just returned from a 4 month volunteer program in Germany.  I came back 20 pounds heavier, only to find that my clothes didn’t fit me anymore. 

It was time to break out my big jeans. :(

I went from a size 12 to a size 15 / 16.  I couldn’t believe it!!!!

I tried everything from the Makers Diet, the Lemon Cleanse, to just eating healthier all together.

After a while I figured that I was at the weight that I should be and there was nothing else I could do.

I guess you can say that I kind of gave up trying! I told everyone that I was comfortable with my weight.  

I kept telling myself I would loose the weight without any problems, although I found that it is easier to put on weight than to take it off. 

That is until I used the Shaklee Cinch!!!!

I must say I feel so much happier and healthier now that I have lost all of the weight from Europe plus some but that’s not all, I lost over 13 inches everywhere.  I feel better now than I have ever felt before!!!

  Cinch Starter kit

My sister Bonnie is the one that really got me started on the Shaklee Cinch weight loss plan. I never really looked into it even though I am a Shaklee Independent Distributor myself. I just thought “I am sure it works for some people but that isn’t for me.”


I couldn’t of been more wrong.  Needless to say, I gave it a try and I am so glad that I did. It has changed my life forever!!   With a 100% money back guarantee who wouldn’t want to try it.

Bonnie told me that she would do it with me since she was going to be going on a tropical vacation with her family!!

As far back as I can remember, every time either of us was going to try a new diet of some sort we always had the other one do it too.  It makes it more fun knowing that someone else is doing it with you! :)


My Daily Routine. 


Cinch Shakes 

I start  off everyday with one of Shaklee’s four delicious Cinch Shakes.  I mix one scoop of the protein powder with about 10 oz of milk. I drink my first shake around 8:00 A.M.




One container contains 15 meals, 2 scoops per meal.  One scoop fills me up for 3 to 4 hours.  I will tell you that the first few days I was on this diet I felt like I was still hungry and I wanted to eat more. I just wanted to eat something I wasn’t really hungry at all.  Every time I ate something with the shake I was so stuffed I felt like I just had a thanksgiving dinner.

Each scoop comes out to be a LOW $1.30 per scoop!!!! Now that's affordable!  A complete healthy meal for less than a $1.50!! 

Cinch to-go shakes




Around noon I would have another shake. Shaklee also offers the shakes in to-go packages. It is supper convenient for when I am on the go.  Sometimes I will blend the vanilla or strawberry powder with my smoothies, I love it. It makes for a even more tasty meal.  (See upcoming posts for some of my favorite recipes)




Cinch Meal Bar

Another great alternative when you are on the go is the Meal-in-a-Bar. These bars are so filling that I  seriously can’t eat a whole bar in one sitting.  I just love the Peanut butter Chocolate Chip, it is my favorite!




I start to get hungry again around 3 or 3:30, that's when I grab a snack bar or a healthy snack.  I usually make a healthy snack when I am at home and save the Meal-in-a-Bar for when I am on the go or I don’t have time to pack a meal.

Cinch Snack bar


I eat dinner around 6:30 or 7.  I try to eat a balanced meal with a meat, a vegetable and a grain or potato.  I try not to eat anything after dinner because it is not healthy to go to bed on a full stomach.

My days vary from day to day but that is about it!

I try to change  up my diet with different kind of shakes and bars but I have to tell you that I have not and will not get tired of dinking the Cinch.

Whether I mix the Cinch with milk or put it in one of my shakes, I absolutely LOVE it!!!

The Cinch is so creamy and delicious. I love the way I feel when I drink the Cinch protein shakes, they give me more energy!!!

This is my kind of diet!!!!
