Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 36 & 32 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 36 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 32 weeks for Kaytlin. Vacation… Last week our family went on a short vacation (tagged along to a conference Dad had to go to) and we left before our Nutrisystem food could arrive. I had planned to bring most of my food with me and supplement on the road. What can you do, though. Unfortunately we cannot control the mail. So we left, both of us without a crumb of Nutrisytem food in tow. I was … [Read more...]

FitBit Wearable Wireless Fitness & Sleep (Activity) Tracker Review

Kaytlin and I have been on Nutrisystem for several months now and have decided it’s time to add movement to our lives and program. We really had no idea how much movement we were already doing, how many calories we ate or burned or how well we were sleeping. All of these aspects are important to any weight loss/physical fitness program and we were on a hunt to try to find a way to track them. Then we found the Fitbit Wireless Activity Tracker. … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 35 & 31 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 35 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 31 weeks for Kaytlin. I didn’t blog last week, mainly because I am frustrated. I keep fighting to get away from the 30 lbs. weight loss marker and it keeps sucking me back in. To tell you the truth I am ultra frustrated this week as well. Why? Six weeks ago Kaytlin and I started a running program called Couch to 5k. It’s a 9 week program to get a couch potato like myself moving and able to … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 33 and 29 on Nutrisystem : #NSNation Vlog

It’s been 33 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 29 weeks for Kaytlin. I decided to change it up a bit and Vlog this week. It was a little awkward and I hate videos of myself… but here you go.   So, let’s get to the business at hand… I know you are curious how we did… This week I lost 1.6 lbs. That puts me at  32.8 lbs in 33 weeks Week & -/+ Total Loss week 1: - … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 32 & 28 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 32 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 28 weeks for Kaytlin. This was vacation week for us. We left Monday to go camping for the week. Yes, camping. You know… marshmallows, chocolate, graham crackers, potato chips, coookies…. junk food city. I was a good mommy, though. I also packed a lot of lettuce, green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, apples, bananas, and grapes as well as my Nutrisystem food. I wasn’t sure how much of my “plan” food … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 31 & 27 on Nutrisystem #NSNation (Tips for BBQ Season)

It’s been 31 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 27 weeks for Kaytlin. This was my second week doing the Couch to 5k Running Plan. Although I gained 2.2 lbs last week, I was determined to give this at least 3 weeks before tossing in the towel. I have read up on the gaining issue and I knew I wasn’t overeating, so I attributed it to either/or water & muscle gain. Last night Kaytlin and I finished Week 2 Day 3 of the plan and both of us are … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 30 & 26 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 30 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 26 weeks for Kaytlin. This week I finally made the decision to move my butt. My husband and son have fallen in love with running and to be honest it has peaked my curiosity. I am still a bigger girl, though, and I thought there was no way in heck I could run. My husband told me about a program called the Couch to 5k Running Plan. I am not a total couch potato, but in the past… well, I was never … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 29 & 25 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 29 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 25 weeks for Kaytlin. It was my birthday week (Wednesday was “the day”) and the party started Friday night. Kaytlin took me out to see our favorite band Bowling for Soup play at a small local bar. We were on our feet from 9pm to 1:30am. I have to say… I’m pretty sure 29 weeks ago I would have been complaining most of the night. I was sore, but I made it and had a blast! We even had a little left … [Read more...]
