Nutrisystem Week 2 #NSNation

Another week has come and gone already (Crazy!) and I am really excited that the Nutrisystem program is working so well for me. It is really getting me back on track and I am really pleased with the results so far. This past week was a bit of a challenge for me. I haven't been feeling the best so I went to my Dr. for a routine checkup and she informed me that I am not eating enough calories. After I took a good look at the program and what I was actually eating, she was right! I was failing to take advantage of all of the extra food you can have in the program. In addition to the Nutrisystem entrees, I am also allowed to eat unlimited vegetables from the vegetable list as well as a couple smart carbs and power fuels. I have been so busy with school getting ready to end and with our kids and their sports that I just haven't been taking the time to eat the extra stuff so I was barely eating 1,200 calories a day. Since I have also been working out, my body just wasn't getting enough calories to function properly. So now I am REALLY following the system. I am learning that if you follow it like you are SUPPOSED to, it really works!!!! I know I want to lose all of the weight I need to overnight but the truth is, it took years to get my body to where it is at this very moment and I know I need to be patient in losing the weight.  It's not going to happen over night but it IS going to happen as long as I stick to the program and keep giving it 100%, this I know!  Slow and steady is what I am aiming for so going forward, my new goal weight loss each week will be 2 pounds for the duration of the program.  

This week I faced a challenge that a lot of people often face. I pulled a muscle in my left calf which left me unable to do my daily walking/jogging that I love to do. I was unable to do my regular exercises for nearly 4 days which really threw me off. I tried to do other things but I really missed that cardio and I knew it would affect my weight loss this week. But the important thing is, when you have these setbacks, don't let them define how the rest of your journey is going to go. I could have very easily just given up because it's hard to get back into the habit once you stop for a few days but I am going to keep going because I owe it to myself. If you cheat on your diet or skip a day of exercising, don't let it ruin you. Just shake it off and jump back on the wagon!!!! I know I have come to far to throw it all away now!

As far as the food goes, my favorite food this week, hands down, was the peanut butter granola bars!!!!!  I just placed my order for next month and stocked up on those bad boys!  They are so great to grab on the go and they are so yummy! Also, I am in LOVE with the muffins! I found that if I put just a dab of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter on the top of a muffin and pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds, it is DELICIOUS. Seriously.

So without making you wait any longer, here are my results!!!!!!

Week 1: 7 pounds lost
Week 2: 3 pounds lost

That's 10 pounds in two weeks! Yahoooooooooooo!
