Nutrisystem - Week {1} Complete

Featured Sponsor 
Week no. {1} on Nutrisystem is now complete! Hooray I made it (and even through a Girls Night OUT!). I do have to say, I did "fall off the wagon" a bit during my GNO, but overall, I have to say... it was quite successful. I consciously made better food decisions knowing that they were going to be recorded in my daily food tracker! In addition, I also got some exercise in this past week! Nutrisystem is pretty simple to follow and for a mom of three kids, SIMPLE is key for me. What I liked most so far about the program (and call me silly if you like) but each meal is color coded. Did I mention I {heart} simple. I just open my pantry or freezer and pull out the appropriate meal time *color*. Lovin' it! So... I want to share with you some of my all time favorites from this first week. 

Favs so far...  

Breakfast Time (color code {BLUE}): Cinnamon Streusel Muffin, Homestyle Pancakes, Vanilla Protein Shakes (w/ frozen strawberries mixed in.), Sweetened O's Cereal.
Lunch Time (color code {ORANGE}): Steak & Cheese Melt, Kung Pao Noodles, Loaded Baked Potato, Margherita Pizza.

Dinner Time (color code {RED}): Ravioli Formaggio, Vegetable Lasagna, Italian Herb Flatbread Pizza
Dessert/Snack Time (color code {PURPLE}): Zesty Herb Snack Mix, Honey Mustard Pretzel Bits, Milk Chocolate Flavored Pretzels, Red Velvet Whoopie Pie (deelish!)

Unfortunately, with the good, there are a few NOT so good. 

Breakfast - Garden Vegetable Omelet - I just could not get past the texture of the omelet. It's flavor was ok, but something about it just wasn't great.

Lunch - So far, the lunch time has been quite successful. I am a little leery to try the chicken salad... will keep you posted.

Dinner - Risotto (ick, this will certainly not make my fav list next time).

Dessert/Snack - Everything has been quite tasty. I love me some desserts and snacks!

Now... drumroll, please. 

Starting Weight: Ugh. You don't want to know.
Weight Loss: - 2 lbs. (suuu-weet, considering GNO shenanigans!)

Final Thoughts For The Week: Food was much better than in previous years. The program was SIMPLE to follow. NOW... need to stick with it... onto week #2.

It can be difficult when you're so busy to stay focused on being healthy. I know that first hand. Looks like a great program, glad it's working for you!
