Day One: I Started, Well Re-Started @Nutrisystem! #NSNation

YAY!  I’m so excited.  I have finally restarted on the Nutrisystem program.  I’ve been talking about it for 2 months.  But similar to joining a fitness center, or talking about a hike, it doesn’t work until you start.  (I still think you should get credit for passing up cheescake and paying for a fitness center – c’mon 5 pounds at least!) Planning and considering and evaluating are better than giving up, but the pounds don’t start to melt until I start to eat better or exercise more!

So, today is Day One *excited giggle*.  I had my breakfast and lunch.  Wanna see?  My favorite Nutrisystem breakfast is the Banana Nut Muffin (warmed in the microwave), a banana, and a cup of yogurt.  It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s yummy.  Perfect!

Lunch - Chicken and Pasta in Cacciatore Sauce with diced tomatoes, salad and green beans

This is my lunch – it’s the Nutrisystem Pasta and Chicken in Cacciatore Sauce.  I add fresh tomatoes, spices, and parmesan cheese to it.  To be honest, the Pasta and Chicken by itself?  Not one of my favorites.  But when I doctor it up, it’s okay.  And I like okay.  Sometimes, when I eat something I absolutely love, love, love like some of the frozen entrees, it makes me hungrier.  I know, it sounds goofy, but really, I’m best off with something that is okay, but I’m not begging for seconds.  My salad, on the other hand, was scrum-dilly-umptious.  Romaine, baby spinach, tomatoes, fat-free Italian dressing.  Yummy.  Then for my veggie, fresh green beans, steamed in the microwave….mmm, mmm, good.  Add some sparkling water with lemon and lime and wow, this is a better lunch than I usually have!  Doesn’t it look good?

Dinner and Snack - NS Flatbread Pizza (folded into sandwiches), carrots, green beans, apple, banana, yogurt, and NS Popcorn

This afternoon/tonight, we are going to be at a Corn Maze / Pumpkin farm with friends.  After playing games, getting lost in the maze, Rosie rides ponies and picks a pumpkin, we make a campfire and cook dinner.  Usually hot dogs or brats.  I thought I could take one of my Nutrisystem hot dogs, but decided instead to just pack a meal.  Flatbread Pizza, cut it into quarters and made sandwiches.  Cool, huh?  Then I added green beans, carrots, pecans and an apple.  My snack is a banana and yogurt ( I know, I had that for breakfast, but I love ’em both!).   One of the dessert options is popcorn.  This gives me plenty of things to “munch on” while everyone else is eating the campfire treats.  I think it should work out great!

It feels so good to be “on the path again”.  I can do this (talking to myself, again).  Ah, hope!

If you would like to join me on this journey, I would love to have company!!  Nutrisystem just announced their Fall Sale – the website says it’s less than $3 / meal.  What are you waiting for?  Go here ( for more information about losing weight and getting healthier with Nutrisystem.

    Good job! And putting the food on your own dinnerware seems to help with your mind set. When you eat out of plastic trays- you feel deprived!
