Nutrisystem: WEEK THREE

It's the end of week three with Nutrisystem and I really
appreciate all the encouraging words you left me last week
and the fab ideas for veggies.
I was so inspired and fortified to have a GREAT week.

This week I tried some new veggies and loved them.
Well, I loved the mini cucumbers I picked up at Costco.
However, the mini sweet peppers were "heh".
My friend - and former colleague - could just totally munch them for lunch.
They just gave me heartburn and the kids felt tortured
when I made them try one. LOL

The other awesome thing about me eating more veggies
is that my kids are eating more veggies.
When the see me eating them and being a better example.
they are totally more inclined to try them.
I am really excited that we are becoming
a healthier family together!

I have failed at exercising this week.
Since Summer Vacation hit I've been staying
up later and been reluctant to get up early and swim.
I keep saying -
"The girls I babysit aren't coming. We can totally do it later."
Um, but "later" never comes.
So I'm jumping back on the wagon this week
and exercising in the wee hours of the morning.

Some of my favorites this week!

Week One: -6 lbs
Week Two: -3 lbs
Week Three: -.5
(lame, but Aunt Flo is visiting, so I'm glad I didn't gain!)

Things I need help with this week:
  1. I'm still searching for a fabulous fat free dressing. I'm particularly interested in a fab honey mustard. I love the Chickfila FF Honey Mustard, but I don't think you can buy it by the bottle :(
  2. Strategies you use to distract your mind from wanting to munch. I chew gum sometimes, but because I have jaw issues - I know, I'm falling apart - I can't do it very often. What are some things that help you avoid mindless chowing?

Nutrisystem is providing their food and program to me free of charge in exchange for blogging about my experience as part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program. The opinions above are my own.
