Starting Week 69 with Nutrisystem




I received a fun surprise from my friends at Nutrisystem on Friday. Here it is ~ the Nutrisystem Cool 'N Carry Complete Kit



It is very cool in more ways than one! ☺ It includes:

4 - One-cup containers with lids
2 - Removable ice rings
1 - Salad Shaker with snap-on ice ring, lid and dressing dispenser



This Salad Shaker is awesome. I especially love the dressing dispenser which holds just the recommended amount because I usually don't measure my dressing and probably am using too much. The removable ice rings are great for keeping food fresh and salad crisp while traveling. The entire set with the 4 one-cup containers is $24.99. 



Here's a delicious recipe for Heirloom Tomato Salad found on The Leaf to take along to the beach in your new Salad Shaker. ☺


I was so happy this morning when I saw 135 on the scale. I realized after posting the pic that the ounces didn't register so I will go with 135.8 {just in case} which is a 1.2 lb. loss for the week! YIPPEE!!!

    Starting Week 68 with Nutrisystem



    I'm extra thankful for living in a large community while therapy to deal with driving is on hold. I attended a few events in the community last week. Eating out is still a challenge, not so much for making healthy choices, but most of the options are high in histamine, and this past week I was not able to tolerate a lot of the non-Nutrisystem menu items. As far as exercising, I've been walking in the pool when able and physical therapy continues to "up" the intensity of my routine. They feel they have done all they can for me and suggest a chiropractor as the next step.

    Taking in and appreciating nature is a wonderful way to relax and take your mind off stressful situations. My go-to place to relax is our community's bay beach. It's not really for swimming, but its tranquil beauty is breathtaking and the wildlife surrounding it is awe-inspiring.

    The scale was up .4 lbs. last week, I'm actually surprised it didn't show more of a gain. Nothing to do with the plan, just a very tough week as far as dealing with accident recovery issues. 
    I will be blogging for Nutrisystem until the end of September. I've decided to continue on with the program either with their Weekends My Way plan or ala carte to maintain my weight loss. I may do a repeat of Turbo Takeoff before the end of September. If anyone is planning to start Nutrisystem in the next two months, send me an email HERE and we can do Turbo Takeoff together. ☺
