Dieting is not easy when you are sick. You kind of lose your mojo, per say. This week we also had a party at the house, and went out to eat as a family, so yes, I do confess: I cheated on my diet this week. I could not pass up chocolate covered marshmallows and Cold Stone Ice Cream. However, when one cheats they have to make up for it somewhere. With Nutrisystem, they suggest 30 minutes of daily activity. My workouts of choice are cardio DVDs, weight lifting, or walking on my treadmill, while watching a movie. Instead of doing thirty minutes on the treadmill I would do an hour to make up for the extra carbs.
One feature of the Nutrisystem my way plan that I really appreciated was the Eating Out Guide. This guide helps you make wise choices on the go. It provides you with the best options from the top 30 family restaurants and fast food chains. Some of the popular eateries include family favorites like Olive Garden and Chili’s and fast food joints like McDonalds and Burger King. Come on, what is not to like? A weight loss program that helps you pick healthy choices at McDonalds. How cool is that! I did try the Lighter Choice 6 oz. Classic Sirloin at Chili’s and was very thankful for the guide’s suggestion.
I just got my 2nd month of food delivered from Nutrisystem and am really happy to have my frozen desserts again. Maybe that will help me resist Cold Stone next time. Check out my past week results, and stay tuned every Sunday for my latest update.
