>I really, truly am. You all know I’m on Nutrisystem, just starting my 2nd week. I’m loving it, but I honestly wasn’t sure how I’d do with the Superbowl and all the snack-tastic foods that come with it….
I rocked it. Kicked the snacky foods in the rear.
Last night I made honey-mustard marinade from scratch and baked chicken thighs, rice and green beans for the family for dinner. Wouldn’t you just know it, Nutrisystem has a dinner that’s chicken, and a rice, and green beans. So while I wasn’t eating exactly what the family was, it was pretty darn close!!
But…my biggest success was today/tonight. I’d actually decided that when I caved, I’d have some tortilla chips (baked) with some of our salsa we can each year that we grow in the garden. I figured, I can limit myself with salty snacks…and it would be the healthiest snack cavein. We had pizza and wings and veggie sticks to munch on- well, the wings I can take or leave (I prefer boneless) so I left them- and I had a yummy turkey pepperoni pizza from Nutrisystem that I piled some extra veggies on top of. Again- same dinner as the family. ON Nutrisystem. AWESOME!!
I didn’t have the tortilla chips and salsa. I ended up not really watching much TV after the kids went to bed, I got some work stuff done here on the laptop in the kitchen, sipping flavored seltzer water and munching on melty ice cubes.
I did have an extra snack a bit earlier- I had that butter flavored popcorn I was telling you about the other day. Perfect portion, and yes, it was an extra ‘dessert’ but you know what? I’m 100% ok with it. When I think about all of the other things I COULD have eaten- I’m feeling really awesome right now!
I’m loving Nutrisystem!
