A typical Nutri-System Day

A friend asked about this and I thought I would post my reply to her in case others were wondering!

A typical day eating for me is something like this:

Breakfast-N/S entree (granola, scone, pancakes, etc), yogurt and a banana

Lunch-steamed cabbage (this is allowed in unlimited amounts), salad with a hard boiled egg with fat free dressing and a N/S entree

Snack around 3 of a piece of fruit and a piece of cheese

Dinner is more cabbage and a salad minus this egg but with an additional veggie, such as a cucumber and a N/S entree.

Desert is a N/S desert (chips, chocolate, etc)

I REALLY like the food. Of course some things are better than others, but that will always be the case. If you decide you want to try it let me know and I will send you a referral and I think we both get a discount!

A minimum of 30 minutes of cardio. Saturday I did an hour, yesterday only about 20 minutes. I actually now feel guilty if I do not do enough!

16 pounds!

I am down 16 pounds. SIXTEEN POUNDS. Unreal. I am so excited and so proud of myself. Its hard and easy at all the same time! And what I realized the other day is that its been WEEKS since I have had salt, as its not allowed on NutriSystem. Which is obviously a good thing. Its weird its not bothered me since I love(d) salt.

The workouts are killing my arms, literally. I am on the elliptical or treadmill and hold.on on for dear life since I am going WAY uphill and my arms are in a bad way. Oh well, I am down SIXTEEN POUNDS!!

I better be down 10 more pounds by tomorrow....

its SO freaking hot here. I am talking 110 with the heat index. So between working in my yard for an hour in that heat, 45 minutes of cardio and almost 2 hours outside with a 2, 2.5 and 4 year old playing, yeah, I BETTER have lost some good pounds.

Look what I got!

Today my new shipment of food came in. As I was going down the packing slip I see under MISC.:

10lb Bear

Um, ok. No freaking clue what that means. I was HOPING it was a 10lb CHOCOLATE bear. Maybe with some fluff inside??!!
No obviously you now know it was this bear. My 10 pounds lost bear!! Its so exciting, and honestly, BETTER than a chocolate bear would be! I am over 13 pounds lost now. YAY ME!

Holy shit....

My step-mom has a KILLER body. She was wearing my regular clothes as maternity clothes, no joke. The woman works out every day. And it shows.

So today she had us over and took me into her workout studio (yes, that is how killer she is, she has her own workout studio/building at my dad's farm). She trained me for 45 minutes. Alternating between cardio (trampoline..insane) and this machine that I did different maneuvers on that LITERALLY worked every.single. muscle group. My whole body was shaking by the end.

4 hours later I can hardly move....I cannot imagine what I will be feeling tomorrow.

I'm here!

I have had a week....a rough week. But the diet and exercise goes on! I am now down 12 pounds. I have been to the gym everyday for I think 11 days in a row. Today I did not go, but I did walk in my FitFlops for almost 2 miles. I will go to the gym in the morning. I feel good! I do not like exercising and honestly do not understand people who do. But I feel better. I know I look better. And I know its worth it and good for my health.

But damn a beer would be damn good right now.
