A Shameless Plug
I know that more than a few of you live in or around Las Vegas and I have mentioned several times that Snack Monkey is a professional carpet cleaner so I wanted to take a day to mention the company that he cleans for. Wall to Wall is their name and they've been serving the Las Vegas area for over 12 years. Prior to that they did work in California so they have over 20 years of experience and they can do anything! Carpet, upholstery, all forms of hard flooring, vehicle upholstery, rugs, repairs, stretching, flood damage, and even delicate fabrics like oriental rugs and such. They have great prices and they're honest so they'll tell it like it is straight up; if they look at your carpet and see a stain that might need extra care they'll let you know and discuss it with you instead of just cleaning over it and hoping it goes away like some cleaners do. They're clean-cut, trustworthy, respectable guys too so you can feel safe having them in your home.
They do free estimates and work 6 days a week too so you can get an appointment with them that will work for your schedule. You can call the office to make an appointment at 702-579-7799 or visit their website to get 15% off. Be sure to tell them that Snack Monkey sent you because I really think they'll get a kick out of that (they read my blog so they'll know who you're talking about). I have also had their logo and info at the bottom of my blog for about a month or two now, and there it will stay, so if you need their info you can always find it there at any time.
They do residential and commercial (and vacants too!) so if you're selling or moving be sure to give them a call. My sister had them do her old place before she moved out and she's absolutely certain that without them she wouldn't have gotten her deposit back. It's time for spring cleaning so don't forget the floors ... you never really know how dirty they are (especially living in the desert) until you've had them cleaned and can see the difference!
P.s. people ask me how I can eat less than/around 1,000 calories and not be hungry and I'll tell you, it's all about food choice! Snack Monkey wanted In n' Out sooo bad so I decided to give the protein style a try and I have to confess I wasn't impressed at all. It tasted ok but I was done with it before Snack Monkey had even put a dent in his fries and he hadn't touched his double double at all yet. Then I sat there wishing I had something else while my stomach continued to growl as if saying 'nice appetizer, what's for dinner?' It was only 330 calories but it was NOT at all filling! On the other hand last night's pork chop was only 318 calories and I felt completely satisfied and un-hungry after eating it. I use the term un-hungry because I wasn't full; I try not to eat until I'm full anymore because it's really not necessary. That's a big mental hurdle on the weight-loss obstacle course, we human beings don't have to eat until we're full. Really! I'm serious, we don't! We just need to eat until we're not hungry anymore.

Grocery shopping: carried the bag of cat litter up the stairs from the car and Snack Monkey asked "can you get that?" ... like I might not make it. I said "dude, I've lost more pounds than this thing weighs!" Oh yeah ... that felt really sweet!
