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...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 28 & 24 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

It’s been 28 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 24 weeks for Kaytlin. I have a good feeling that I finally broke through my plateau! I’m not sure what I did, other than eat out most of Mothers Day weekend, but I’ll take it. I’m still fighting the normal cravings (chocolate and salt), but they are easier to resist. I have found sugar free candies to be helpful and sugar free gum. We are gearing up for a fun summer as a family. I have a … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 27 & 23 #NSNation

It’s been 27 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 23 weeks for Kaytlin. I am just going to cut to the chase. It was a baaad weekend for food around here, but I think Kaytlin and I did a great job controlling ourselves! Friday and Saturday we had our garage sale. Kaytlin purchased junk food to sell, and we ate (some of) the leftovers. Friday we had pizza for lunch. It’s just what we do the first day of a sale… takeout. Neither one of us wanted to … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 26 & 22 #NSNation

It’s been 26 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 22 weeks for Kaytlin. What a wild and crazy weekend it was here. I’m sorry our post is so late. We participated in our neighborhood garage sale Friday and Saturday… then Sunday was Mothers Day. Unfortunately I had failed to plan ahead with my post. I’m here now, though! ;O) I tell you what… it feels so good to declutter your house. It declutters the mind, too… kwim? The overflowing storage room … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 25 & 21 #NSNation

It’s been 25 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 21 weeks for Kaytlin. What a wild and crazy week it was here. I had a date meal out with my husband, Easter, roofers pounding over my head for two days, Emma & Ethan at each other’s throats all week… yadda yadda yadda. I’m not going to try to make any excuses. It is what it is… an off week. I tried to be on my best behavior, but I am a stress eater. I was completely stressed out with my … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 24 and 20 #NSNation

It’s been 24 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 20 weeks for Kaytlin. Last week I told (and showed) you about cleaning out my closet. All of my “too big” clothes are now gone. Well, Kaytlin followed suit and cleaned out her closet as well. I am sure the DAV was happy to see all of our clothes coming in, but our empty closets made us sad. I had planned on heading to Fashion Bug (because I had a coupon) but Kaytlin’s bank account was empty from … [Read more...]

What a Mom Wants: Chilis Margarita Madness Review & $20 gc GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

"Mom's Deserve a Margarita on Mother's Day!" Mothers Day is quickly approaching… have you made plans for her special lunch/dinner yet? No?! How about Chilis? Kaytlin and I stopped in for lunch while out shopping. We were a bit apprehensive because we were pretty sure there wasn’t much on the menu for vegetarians, but we decided to give it a go anyway. It’s been ages since I had eaten at Chilis. I have only been eating vegetarian for six months … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In : Weeks 23 & 19 #NSNation

It’s been 23 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 19 weeks for Kaytlin. It was a big week at our house! Our long awaited elliptical finally arrived to help kick our butts into gear. I was able to use it twice this week… the first time I had noodle legs after using it only 10 minutes. The second time I was able to push 20 minutes out before I had to quit. YEAH me! :O) My other big moment was emotional and scary for me. I had discussed with my … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In: Weeks 22 & 18 #NSNation

It’s been 22 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 18 weeks for Kaytlin. What a frustrating week for me this week. I was such a good girl. I ate exactly what was on the list and nothing more. I even had that nasty terrible metallic taste for nearly a full week! I slipped off the wagon a bit yesterday and was greeted with a BIG FAT ZIP on the scale today. *sigh* On the other hand, I had a beyond the scale victory! I am officially down another … [Read more...]
