>My very first Nutrisystem Week has come to a close. #NSNATION

>I’ve had a different food for every meal (ok maybe a few dessert repeats) and stuck to the program quite well this entire week…and…

I lost 4.1 pounds since I weighed in last Friday!! 

I’m so excited!!  And so, so motivated to keep going with this .   I haven’t been starving, either.  In fact, its kind of hard to remember to get EVERYTHING in each day.  I was super hungry one day…although I’m not sure that shoveling a roof and then roof raking for an hour straight is anticipated when you are doing Nutrisystem so maybe that had something to do with it. 

That’s right- I’ve had exactly 23 meals, 7 snacks, 7 desserts (yes, dessert DAILY!!) and am down 4.1 pounds.  New math?  23+7+7=4.1 

I’ve even received some of the brand new Nutrisystem foods to try, and while I haven’t tasted them all, I have to say the Peanut Butter & Jelly bar  is pretty delish!! 

Other new items I’m anxious to try include Butter Flavored  Popcorn

and Italian Wedding Soup.  That’s hands down my all time favorite soup.

 Plus, now they have Scrambled Eggs with Vegetables for breakfast too!

In other news- Nutrisystem is, for a limited time, offering their 2003 pricing!!  This is their “Rollback Sales Event” and its a perfect time to keep your resolutions going.

Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?

 

 

Well, I did move some this week.  You know, like walking, and doing some exercises in the pool.  I tried to do some bench pressing with my 23 lb 23 month old.  I don’t love it.  But I’m working on it.  Lots going on and I was weak…too many snacks.  Apparently my brain and my stomach aren’t having the right conversations, but I’ve done great the past 2 days with program and plan to continue.  I need to get a Zumba Wii or Xbox game, I think.  [click to continue…]

Schwan’s to the rescue!

Schwan’s is a brand that I’ve known of for a very long time but hadn’t had the opportunity to try except a few times.  Having been on Nutrisystem for several months, I’ve had Schwann’s at my house to deliver my frozen foods (they are partnered) but it wasn’t until very recently that we actually got to try a full meal from Schwann’s.

I understand the hype. I understand the love.

Delicious food, super simple to prepare, and TIME SAVING!!  We hadn’t had much in the way of plans today- church, and then picking up groceries- but due to a “thingy” exploding in the Camry and having an extra child here this afternoon for a few hours, and then trying to rent a steam cleaner to get our rugs cleaned and the smell from the explosion in the Camry to dissipate- the quiet Sunday turned into a lot going on with not much at all being accomplished- and before we knew it, the clock said 5:45.  We usually eat by 5:30.  This wasn’t good.  [click to continue…]

What’s cooking at your house tonight?

I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for new recipes. Partly because I get bored with what I make all the time but also because I’m not exactly “Bretty Crocker” and I love finding recipes that are easy but taste delicious- with a kind of no-fail possibility.  Tall order, I know.  But once in a while I find them. 

I still need to find more.  I’m bored, bored bored with our dinners.  Especially with me being on Nutrisystem and not really eating what the family is eating, I am feeling a bit more adventurous (I admit right now I’m the pickiest one in the house!) and trying new things.  I signed up for the RecipeMom.com newsletter a few weeks ago and have found a few great recipes that way.   They include some tips and tricks in each newsletter which is helpful for non-talented cooks like myself!!

A note about signing up- it takes maybe 3 minutes total- there are a few “special offer” pages to get through but either at the bottom of the page or upper right corner will be a button to “pass” or “skip” or similar to avoid that.  I went through it just fine in about 3 minutes without signing up for any offers, etc. 

What are your favorite sources for new, healthy ideas for your family for dinners?

Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?

 

 

Wow.  My apologies.  I had 2 posts for my progress that stuck in draft land and didn’t post.  Jeez.  :o(  So it’s been a while.  I was doing fine, holding steady…I actually have to go figure out my total right now but its about 26lbs lost.  30, HERE I COME!

I’m still here.  Still on program.  Was off program when I was in California, although I was careful and didn’t go crazy…but I still gained.  Happily, only 2.6 lbs were gained, and as of this morning I was down 1.2 from that.  I’m going to break 30lbs lost by July 31st.  That’s my goal.  I’d like to do it sooner, time will tell.  June got “hairy” as my friend Karly says, when I got home from my trip I had 3 sick kids and then I got sick…and its been a big game of catch up ever since.

I also have to admit something. [click to continue…]

Has anyone tried Jillian Michaels’ program?

 

I keep hearing about Jillian Michaels over and over and over again- and I hear she’s amazing with what she teaches people and shows them they can do with their bodies- has anyone tried her weight loss program?  No gym required intrigues me. I think I have a special kind of hatred for the gym (maybe because there isn’t one that is affordable and offers childcare anywhere near my house?!)  I’m more looking at the non-dietary aspect of this due to Nutrisystem, although I’d love to know what people think of the program as a whole!! Anyone?[ad#glam between posts]

Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?

I lost .6 this past week.  Not the best, but not the worst.  Still LOVING the Biscuits and Gravy!!  I’m trying to prepare myself physically and mentally for my big trip to LA next week- I will be armed with Nutrisystem tools and I know I can text my Nutrisystem buddies for support if need be- its just going to be a very different situation than being here at home or close to home to have my normal snacks and foods right there where I want and need them.

Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?

Well, this isn’t exciting at all- I stayed exactly the same!  Not even a .1 variance on the scale.  But that’s ok.  I stuck to plan and that’s what mattered. This included several days of me having to stick to plan with no breakfast or lunch items from Nutrisystem because I totally spaced on sending my order in – so I’m feeling pretty darn good about staying the same! I did learn by this happening, though, that I CAN function without Nutrisystem food, and also that perhaps I have a tiny bit of willpower in me somewhere after all… [click to continue…]

I need your help. Please, please oh please and thank you (in advance)

While I am over the moon excited and honored to be one of the 20 bloggers invited by Disney & Dreamworks to fly to Los Angeles in a few weeks for the screening of Winnie the Pooh and the red carpet premiere of Cars 2 (seriously, STILL waiting for someone to pinch me- is this really happening??)- I’m also a little bit freaked out.

You see, I’ve recently lost almost 30 lbs. I’ve lost inches in my measurements. None of my clothes fit anymore- they are too big. I know, this isn’t something to be upset about.

Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?

With Mother’s Day and my birthday just 2 days apart, I had a 1.4 lb gain last week (which honestly should have been more, I wasn’t really good about staying on program and it was sheer luck that kept that number from being higher)- we went out to eat twice and there was a Carvel ice cream cake…a weakness (ok really, what sweets aren’t a weakness????).  So I deserved to gain, and knew that this week would be better.

I also have a renewed motivation to stick with my program.  If you didn’t read earlier this week, I was invited to fly out to Los Angeles and attend the red carpet Hollywood premiere of Cars 2 in about 3 weeks- which means I have about 3 weeks to drop as much weight as possible.  Talk about renewed motivation- holy moly!!  I didn’t realize how “meh” I’d become about this until I realized just how excited I was to see how much I can lose before I board that plane to LA on June 15th.  So, we’ll see how I do.
