So, why Nutrisystem? In summary.... I'm lazy. I know myself well enough to know that the key to me being succesful in eating healthy is having a plan. Having my meals planned out and preprepped and ready to go. If I'm left to make a decision on the fly, it's usually not a healthy one.… Continue reading Why Nutrisystem?
I want to start off by saying, please buy the book. I'm only posting these lists and recipes to make the diet easier to complete. The book is amazing and gives you all this information (minus the grocery list) but it's not organized quite as well and I found that doing this prep work to… Continue reading Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 (Recipes and Grocery List)
Okay, so I haven't posted since the beginning of July. I was doing great on my Jumpstart to Skinny and was really excited about it. And then my house caught on fire. Yes, you read that right. On Sunday, July 7, at about 7 am, my husband and I were woken up by the power… Continue reading Update: PCOS and Fire
I finished reading Jumpstart to Skinny and started the plan on Wednesday, after doing all the prep work on Tuesday. I can't say I've been successful... I took Thursday off completely since it was the Fourth of July and I went to a barbecue. I definitely cheated quite a bit yesterday. And I haven't been doing… Continue reading Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 Days 1-3
First off, I would like to apologize for not posting at all lately. I have been extremely busy with work and school and life in general. 😛 I'm sticking to my diet though. (Mostly.) I'm not eating as strictly as I would like, but I'm tracking all of my food and staying within my calorie… Continue reading Brrrrraaaaaiiiiiinnnnnsssss!
Up until this point I haven't really been on a diet. I've been counting calories, but still eating whatever I want as long as it's within my allotment (1200-1600 calories a day). But I've been disappointed with my weight loss (compared to the amount of time I've spent in the gym) the last few weeks,… Continue reading Week 4 C25K
This hasn't been a good week. I only went to the gym three times. I went a little over in calories about three days. I've just been stressed out this week and really wanted to quite the whole eating healthy thing and eat whatever I want. But I reeled myself in and only splurged a… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
I finished Week 3 of C25K on Saturday. It was tough. The first three minute run was okay. I actually felt pretty good at the end of it. But I barely made it through the second three minute run. I tried to do Day 1 of Week 4 last night but failed miserably! I was… Continue reading Couch to 5K Update
I gained weight this week. 😦 I'm pretty frustrated with this. I worked out every day this week except for Thursday. I stuck to my diet. I feel like I lost weight. And I feel like I should have lost weight! But when I stepped on the scale it said 227! I gained 0.4 pounds. My… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
On Wednesday Heidi and I did our first day of strength training! We used all the arm machines in the gym at the highest weight we could handle (which wasn't a lot!). We did two sets of 10 reps. It was hard! I didn't realize how weak I was! Stronger than Heidi though, which was… Continue reading Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!
