Why Nutrisystem?


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?

Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 (Recipes and Grocery List)


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)

Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 Days 1-3


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.

Week 4 C25K


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

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

Weekly Weigh-in


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

Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!


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!
